No need to look back. What we do know is that just getting our guys back from Ir is going to make the defense better. Once we add some pieces in the draft and lets not forget free agency when we pick up guys who are suddenly expendable due to draft pickups, and we will have a much improved team.

Playing the what if game looking back is for losers.

my problem with everyone hating on the pick is that.......there are no Suhs or even any Fairleys in this draft. No bonecrushing, dirtbag, hit them in the balls and break their back dirty SOB DTs that actually really make a difference. If we would have taken a DT or DE last night, we would have been reaching for a need and filled it with someone drafted way too early. The guys available we not elite level. We did, however, land an elite player with the pick. Thats the important part, we have several more picks to acquire good pass rushing and CB help.

Gotta have perspective. I don't blindly trust and believe in everything that the Gospel according to Hurney tells me............but you gotta look at things realistically................at least we aren't Seachicken fans, amirite? :lol:

As for Kuechly being our best cover guy now, according to whom? Mike Mayock? Remind me what he said about Cam. Besides, in our defense, tight end coverage fell to the safety spot way more than most teams.

Mayock actually called this pick like he did last year with Newton. Said it would be Cox or Kuechly. As for TE coverage being the safeties responsibility we did have to compensate because the backers couldn't do the job but that was not the way we want it to be. Normally the linebacker has the TE in coverage.

Anybody got one? Just one?

Chicago. Easily. They didnt even throw the ball since the LBs could stop simple runs to the outside. Forte killed us all day running outside.

Ignorant question. We had one of the worst defenses in the league last year, and the best players were injured. Kuechly makes the defense better than it was and adds depth to the LB core. Simple as that. We have more than one draft pick and there are still plenty of good DTs and CBs available.

i'm watching the first game against atlanta right now and suddenly i'm liking this pick more. none of our linebackers could make a freaking tackle - turner, mughelli, snelling all just running over guys.

Ok after a night of bitching about those pick I will look on the bright side. Any game you saw a LB trailing a TE he would have helped.

You add a healthy LB core and we don't give up 140 yards rushing per game in turn winning a few more games....I wanted a DT myself but I'm not mad about the pick, I understand that our LBs were poo last year and as much as we all want Davis back I wouldn't bet 5$ he finishes the season.
