If I had to choose one or the other? I would take a top 10ish Offense over a top 10ish Defense.

That said. You have to be pretty good at both to be competitive. We know what we have on O. Or at least we have a decent idea of what to expect. If so, our O should indeed be top 10ish. Even without that. oh so coveted, WR at the top of the draft guy, folks be yakking about.

It's that D that scares me. We still have not addressed that pesky DT position. We can be pretty good against the pass, it is the lack of insides presense in the run game that worries me. Hoping a rookie can fill that void is not a top wish. But it just might be the best wish. Fix the run D, throw in a pass rush with a potentially decent backfield, and we can be pretty good on that side of the ball.

So I say. We should be pretty good this year. Maybe with a top 10 Offense to go with our 15ish Defense. Let's see where it takes us?

I'm not mad at Yas. He's just voicing an opinion, but he did kind tell us our FA has sucked overall, but then qualifies it by saying we don't have any money, so it's no surprise. To me it's a little disingenuous to even compare our FA to other teams' without looking at our success or failure from the perspective of our purse strings.

[u][i][b]I do kind it somewhat odd that we've signed so many defensive backs. Seems like we could have stopped at two, but that's just me.[/b][/i][/u]

Could be a combination of a couple of things? One, more teams are running more of those 3-4 WR sets, so we are bringing in more CB to combat those sets. Two, maybe Gettlemen does not have the faith in the young kids some of us fans have. So he is hedging his bets by bringing in some vet competition.

OR...Gettlemen saw a couple of guys he thought could improve the team on the cheap and said. Why not?

OR... We are both reading too much into the situation.

4 out of 5 top offences made the playoffs. 4 out of 5 of the top defenses made the playoffs. No slant either way.

In fairness....all we have done is lose Chris Gamble and sign weak secondary players and a return man.

All in all, that makes us a little worse....
[/quote]just wondering when the last time was we noticed gamble was on or off the field. we've done well without him and sucked with him. we aren't worse or better with him or without him. we won't notice he's gone.

Are you going to have an aneurysm every time someone mentions Tavon Austin?

The sooner you stop taking Chuck so seriously the better your experience here will be.

Let me clear up this offense vs defense debate.

Great offense seems to win regular season games and great defense seems to win in the playoffs. imho.
