Two moves that would get this defense back on top

Recommended Posts

Eric Berry + Justin Houston

 

Jackson - Berry - Reid - Bradberry 

Houston - Kuechly - Thompson 

Addison - Short - Poe - Ferrell

 

That defense would easily scare the sh1t out of this division. We could quit being a pretender and become a serious contender overnight. Berry and Houston are both only 30. Houston would help Ron if he is serious about showing some 3-4 looks. And, I think Houston could still thrive in a 4-3 defense. 

#29 jersey is up for grab the last time I checked.

If we sign Houston, it’s gonna be for DE money which will make him way overpaid to play weakside linebacker in a 4-3 defense. Not to mention that’s not catering to his strengths and is certainly not where we need him.

We wouldn't sign him as  a DE.

The same Eric Berry who has played three games the last two years because of injuries? Great call Chuck!

No to Berry. Too many injuries and probably past his prime. Houston on a 2 year deal as long as it was team friendly, sure!

Why do you keep using “only 30” “only 31” as a selling point? This is professional football. If they play anything other than kicker or QB, then anything over 29 is a red flag. The only possible positive from being 30 or 31 is that maybe They will come at a discount because nobody wants their old carcass dragging down their defense.

No point in getting another linebacker if we plan have Nickel be the base defense.

 

Berry is a look though, he shouldn’t command too much money.

There are better and cheaper options out there for both spots, in the draft and FA.

Anyone who thinks this defense is two players away from being scary again needs to watch some more Panthers games.  We need at least four players: DT, DE, LB, S.

This is one of the best edge rusher classes in awhile especially at the top.  The 5th best edge rusher would be the #1-2 rusher in most other classes.

 

Safeties, is a Deep class.  And there were a TON of FA causing less holes.  Where we will be picking round 3, there will be a stud.  Heck Justin Reid fell to round 3 last year.

Know that the Chiefs had Berry, Houston, and Dee Ford... and were ranked last in the NFL on defense. Sometimes a spade is a spade.

Berry cannot stay healthy either. If it's a team friendly deal than it's a no brainer. However, I think the Cowgirls are going to throw a boatload of cash at him.
