Damn, Greg Hardys looking big as fug! If RR is right about the interior line, I'd expect a big improvement over all.

I dare say Hardy can move to DT looking like that.

He'll Definitely play some on obvious passing downs. He kinda looks like that guy that used to wear #90.

Maybe Hardy can bring his need for speed to the field and use it get to the QB...

Much of the success will depend on how well key players come back from injuries.If we can get back Beason at 100% or close to it and Ron Edwards we should be able to stop the bleeding in our run defense.The addition of Luke should also give us a big boost for our run defense and help cover TEs and rbs used as receivers.I am uncertain how much better our secondary will be but we should be able to keep the double teams off CJ which should improve qb pressure.My prediction is our defense will be in the middle of the pack.

Agree with middle of the pack this season, but it should be good enough to protect leads and decide a couple games in a positive way, contrary to last season.

Agreed middle of the pack is a big improvement form near last.

Also think we will have the opportunity to get a few more turnovers. I think the improvements should translate into at least 3 more wins this year.
