I'm not saying that McLain or Fua or anyone is going to do what Jenks did, and we didn't exactly draft another Julius Peppers, but there's a lot to be optimistic about. For one, even if he's old Edwards is going to bring a steadying veteran presence to the interior of the line (similar to Buckner). Whoever plays next to him won't be trying to adjust to the NFL, they'll have a year under their belt. There will be a vocal and strong linebacking corps behind them, so there shouldn't be any question on where they should be or what they should be doing on a given play. And, of course, the improved linebacker play will help cover for their mistakes.
I doubt we're going to be a top ten defense this year, but we should improve a ton. And we're going to be a lot better whether or not we have a guy who was signed to be a backup on the Colts interior. How much is anyone's guess. No use crying about it in July.

not trying to go in circles, but outside of marcell dareus, all of the DTs from last years draft were picked bpa.
imo, the talent is about the same.
That is your opinion but I believe the DT talent in 2013 is much better than 2012. That's the thing about the draft you see blue but I could see green.

The curse of being young. The good news. Next year, the vast majority of these guys are going to be called vets. That is when we will know who we are. Still too damm early to make hasty decisions as to our young talent.
We are on the verge of elite status, and are only in year two. Now who is being unreasonable? Us homerz who see the road paved with potential, and are excited for the ride? Or the debby downers and randy reaslist who claim the road is too bumpy, because we don't have a quality support system in place yet?
Giddy the F up guys. And GOOOOOO CATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
