Boom. Like I said in the other thread Nebs and McClain are the bottom feeders of this unit.

And Ron Fields was cut after the 8th game of the season. From a defense that was ranked 28th.

No link because its premium content(well worth it imo). I also put the snap counts in there so you could judge their rankings with a grain of salt. Pressley for instance was probably not our best DT last year and his 40 snaps in no way supports him being our best.

Again I reccomend anyone who is really as passionate about the subject to drop 14.99 on nfl.com rewind and go re-watch the games and pay attention to the trenches. You will see soo much more than you thought you did watching the games live. Fua and Mcclain showed small imprvements each week. They both faced double teams, believe it or not. They were both moved around a poo ton, with Fua playing a 3-4 NT at times and Mcclain even lined up as a 3-4 defensive end. If you go back and watch the games you certainly will not walk away saying damn those rookies cost us the game, nor did they do anything to win it for us either. But when Thomas Davis and Beason were in our D looked pretty good in the front 7. Even when Beason went down and we still had Davis, Connor and Anderson our front 7 was still sufficient. After we lost Davis, things went down hill and we got crushed by runs to the outside where LB'S and Safeties missed tackles and it had nothing to do with being engulfed by interior lineman.


Neither one of them did anything spectacular per say but they were not as bad as many of you seem to remember. They both got more stout at the point of attack and filled clogs at times against the run They even pushed the pocket here and there, although they hardly scared a qb in doing something dumb. Our biggest problem against the run were guys bouncing to the outside and having our linebackers and safeties miss easy tackles and Hardy not being their to seal his edge. Over the course of the season our 4 lowest rated players in Run Defense were Pugh, Martin, Hardy,and Mcclain according to pff. Then of course we had such a shuffle at outside LB, limited snap counts(see Pressley)prevented them from drawing such negative grades as well.

Our LB core will make a huge difference in the entire Defenses perfomance.

Cool logic bro. I guess Charles Johnson and Steve Smith were wasted 3rd round picks after their rookie year too.
