25% of our current defensive production to increase our offensive production by 50% next year? this is a legit question in terms of letting some key players walk and bringing in some as well. it is very realistic we could lose 2-3 of our defensive vets but if this makes us capable of coming back offensively, extending plays, producing the fullness of our run game game, I say  before the draft.

A little more offensive production would`t hurt ;-). Something has to be done and there are areas that have to bleed in favour for our needs. So my answer to your question is yes.

I guess I'm old school but I would never sacrifice defense for offense. This defense is borderline legendary and all we need is moderate tweeks to the offense which I think are doable.

Defense over offense always.
Defense wins Superbowls.

Like Gettleman said in the presser, we have to go through the NFC first.  All of the power-houses in our conference have very good defenses.  Even the saints d was very much improved.  I'd like to keep the defense as close to the top as possible.  We have a few pieces missing on both sides of the ball, but we're on the right track gentlemen.

If both sides of the ball are top 10 and perform consistently away and home, I'm happy.

that's a great way to look at it... I'd sacrifice the db scrubs for one elite db and a super scrub for reserve... offensively I'm not sure what could sacrificed. its too much invested in the backfield.

 

nevertheless I'd slice these guys

 

Blackburn because of AJK

Josh Thomas because he's legendary at suckage

Godfrey because we have seen we don't have to have him and his contract is wildly too much

I expect most of the young guys back.  They are cheap and they are cheap.  Norman will be cut because we don't really need him and I don't think Rivera is very high on him.  We can probably find his replacement in an undrafted free agent (white and lester are decent examples).  Really it's up to the scouting dept to find the best talent/fit for this team.  The young guys will have a year under their belt, so hopefully they will only get better.  You can't forget at one time we had what, 6 rookies starting/playing large roles?

Basicly true, but you can`t always win games 10-9 or 20-17. You have to score some points and can`t only rely on Cams legs and Tolberts 8 yrd bursts. The balance just isn`t right at the moment. I love our 2013 D but we have to give up something to get better. Just look at the Kraken situation and CJs cap.

So you mean let other teams score 25% more points than they did in 2013 while the offense scores 50% more points

That's pretty much a no brainer

were 0-4 when we gave up over 21 points. you have to have offense to. I would be happy with a top 10 defense and a top 10 offense. Balance is the key

Worst case scenario, our young guys have to step up.  The addition of Star and KK (who will only get better) will help whoever plays on the other side of Johnson.  Say we tag and trade, we get an extra player who will be a hell of a lot cheaper than what hardy will demand.  Then of course, we may find a way to keep him.
