I'm more confident than ever in our DTs, Shirley and OG are probably better than fua and McClain its kinda sad when they go on injured reserve and I feel like we've upgraded at the position

Why rush back injured rookies in a 4-8 season? They played, they learned, they'll be ready and healthy next year.

Ron had mentioned in his 4pm interview with MTC that Kearse and Nebblett have started the past two weeks, and that he finally felt that the DLine had some consistency at the position.
Fua and McClain had been at the crux of our defensive woes because they couldn't keep "gap integrity" - meaning they couldn't stop the run. Sure the LB core is banged up, but it doesn't mean that your LB core is bad when you give up so much on the run to begin with?

I'd have hoped they contracted mono instead, but this will do..


Agree. I believe more playing time for Neblett along with more rotations on the D-line (Keiser, etc) have helped a lot. Add to that Jordan Senn solidifying our LB corps and we have some positive results in our run D.

Neblett looked way better and we had some nice pressure with a DT and Johnson, Hardy, and Applewhite as our front four.
