Too bad you aren't allowed to play the game like the 03 team did anymore....
They hit QBs and mauled WRs. Need talent in today's game.
You can't maul people mid-route like Ricky Manning anymore, but you can still be very physical at the line. And you can still disrupt the QB with your dline.
Maybe we don't have guys that can blanket a receiver for 6 seconds. But we have guys that I believe can disrupt them for 3 or 4 seconds while our dline gets in there after the QB. If our safeties can avoid giving up the "oh crap I'm about to get sacked" heave down the field, I think we'll be fine. I know being negative is kind of your shtick and that's fine, but I choose to be positive about the product the team will be putting out their on defense. We can agree to disagree on this one.
