Maybe not "rebuild"...but more size at DT...more talent at CB...and a SS who can tackle....im about over watching Godfrey whiff on so many tackles..looks like hes hugging air half the time


3/11 definitely not rebuilding and I don't agree on Godfrey.

Looking ahead at Atlanta, I suppose we will line up Butler on Jones....with Butler having "top end speed", running a 4.3/40 I feel alot better about some of our division games now then I did a little while ago....of course as always ...gotta stay healthy.

agreed. we are only lacking a couple pieces (an experienced run stuffer DT and a CB). hardly a rebuild.

and godfrey is a lot better than any give him credit for. his first year he was pathetic, but he has gotten significantly better each year and he's pretty much a ballhawk.

Godfrey has gotten a lot better and doesn't get the credit for it, does anyone think the team makes a big push to re sign him? He's a fa after this season. Keep in mind that the Cap is expected to stay relatively flat the next two seasons.

My expected 2012-2014 cap numbers after reading the CBA are

2012 - 125 million
2013 - 130 million
2014 - 150 million - ESPN MNF deal kicks in and gives about 14 million to each team for cap.

I agree with this agreement. I also think a starting-quality cb or even 2 will emerge from the Butler/Thomas/Hogan group.

DE is a problem nobody is talking about. Hardy is unproven, but even if he steps up, we have no DEs with run stopping ability behind him. Maybe Selvie surprises, but I don't have much hope for him. Norwood is never going to be that DE. I think we draft a DE in the first round next season. We need 3 who can get after the passer but stop the run as well. I would love Coples to add to the rotation.

You think we draft a rotational DE in the first?

you can never have too many pass rushers, but you can certainly have too few
