RE: the comment about vet DTs outplaying our highly drafted DTs...when was the last time we spent a remotely high draft pick on a DT? The closest thing I can remember is Jenkins in the 2nd....I'd hardly call 3rd round picks "high draft picks".

More revisionist history. Nobody was calling for a new RG last offseason, other than perhaps for depth. I remember this clearly for one reason...I made a post at the end of last year that said that Hangman had played poorly late in the year, and just about everyone came to his defense talking about how solid he was.
You must not have read other people's posts outside of your thread

That is what I wanted before the season started.
If Hangartner gets abused again in the next game, we could try to kick Bell inside to Guard and start Bruce Campbell at RT?
Bell had good and bad at RT on Sun. He got beat....but so did our Pro Bowlers

I can live with the two Edwards as our DT next year.
Not going to draft another Guard that that high next year.
Major need: DE, S, CB

We need more starting running backs
we clearly don't have enough after watching the last game. Need at least 4 to have a good running game
how can you say that when our line backing corps is so weak?

Let Drew Brees throw it around, he's going to get his anyway. But I would take our secondary the way it is now as long as we can get a badass defensive line.
Big ole DT would suit us nice...And if Hardy doesn't have a 5-8 sac season, best believe his job will be on the line.

yea I was a little reluctant to bring up draft talk already, but seeing a rookie runningback take the Panthers D out back to the woodshed was a little disappointing to say the least...still a 10 win team, and it was a team loss, but I just think they should have been a little nastier than that; especially after being in Tampa all week to focus for the opening week game against a divisional opponent.
That rookie hardly took the defense out back to the woodshed. He averaged like 3.5 yards per carry. That's pretty mediocre.
