The "I just don't see it guys"Before a guy ever plays

There was a lot of "Ron Edwards is an old ineffective nobody" talk from a many huddlers who never have seen him play a snap for us or in his career.
Can we acknowledge that Ron Edwards(along with Dwan of course) has help stabilized this line? Drew could not step up in the pocket like last season avoiding all edge pressure that Hardy and CJ got on him in 2011.
On Sunday Drew stepped up and the G-C was pushed in his face and he had to bail the pocket only to fling his incomplete legal-intentional grounding passes.
I cannot say I felt bad for his limping ass after his sack either... Lead apologist of a bunch of clasless jerks.
Its real sad, that a team that represents a city that is built under sea level, actually plays with the class of a team well beneath the ocean floor.

Beach Ball >>>> Fua & McClain
Beach Balls have a lower drafted "bust rate" than DTs.
This shows that like Rivera has constantly stated...you do not need elite guys at DT to make it happen.
Gerald McCoy looked great week 1 but he has missed 3/4th of his games with terrible injuries...
Not many Suh's in the last 15 years.. DT typically takes time to develop and too much to invest in a first round DT.
Just think, we could have Donatari Poe being blocked to the ground for us instead of KC!

Plus we got Keiser, Applewhite, & Hardy. Maybe one of them develops into something this year
Compared to where we were last season, the d-line seems vastly improved...at least on the collapsing pocket ability

Not going to be happy till we get Haloti Ngata and Ndamukong Suh as our DT's.
Why isnt Hurney trying to offer Armanti and Fua for this deal?!
Heck throw in a 5th. I can do his job better!! - as seen on The Huddle! Sadly many, many times....
@Beach: I agree all of those guys are now assets..Alexander is coming along nicely and Keiser makes all his snaps count. Actually DE is a position of depth...Applewhite can fill in at LBer too..nice roster Mr. rivera and Mr. Hurney( I mean give Rivera more than a lockedout offseason to prove himself)
