Does Everyone Really Believe We Are Good At Dt?

I think Rivera's credibility will be damaged if we fail to develop one these DT's after defending his DT's.I think if Ron Edwards comes back to his previous self I can see it at NT but I dont see the the guy at UT. I feel the same way at safety and cb.

I don't believe his credibility will be damaged. So far he's being doing what he said he's going to do. He's made several moves that many did not agree with and have worked out for the teams favor.

At this moment I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.

Honestly? No. But then again i'm not out there day in and day out with these guys so for all I know they have improved leaps and bounds. I have faith in Rivera so I guess what it comes down to is that I HOPE we are good at DT...

No, I am not overly confident in our DT's, but I also realize that you cannot fix everything in today's NFL. Every team has their weaknesses, and we are no different.

I do trust Ron to put the best product on the field given the salary cap and roster size constraints. He may be wrong in his evaluation of specific players, but he also needs to be given the latitude to be wrong occasionally.

As long as the overall product continues to improve, we should be satisfied with his stewardship.

This^^^^^^

It still might be a weakness, but it will be an approved weakness. Drafting Luke was BPA, and also it strengthen a spot that we felt was the strongest on DEF last year. We all know what happened to our strongest position on DEF last year. Also I don't think any DT was worth taking a risk on, knowing that the DT started playing better and the guys that went on IR were thrown to the wolves, what team has ever started 2 rookie DT at the same time before.

[/quote] I agree but it was bothersome for Rivera sweeping it under the rug as if we are fine especially at the UT assuming Edwards returns in good health and shape.I am glad we have Luke but would beg borrow or still to sign a FA.

I'm "cautiously optimistic".

Rivera believes we are good at DT, so I'm going to trust him on that.

Eh, good no but I trust Rivera and feel like everyone will raise their level of play this year.

On paper this team looks good to me but we all know you when games on the field, so we'll see what happens.

[/quote]I wonder if he really believes we have a starting caliber UT or are they defending those two 3rd round draft picks that seem to suck
