A lot of us are pointing to Hardy's absence on the DL, but don't forget that Frank Alexander is also missing from the rotation. Who knows what the problem is, but we also had a very nice/deep rotation on the DL as a whole last year. Doesn't look to be the case this year. This article has made me think a little bit. Although we're not Seattle we had a lot in common with them last year as far as our front 7.
Alexander and Hardy would have been our two best rushers. Firmly believe that...it's killing this D to not have them.
