The more I think about it, the more I come to the conclusion, we need to overhaul the DLine. We need to be able to control the LOS and pressure the QB with 3-4 guys.
The best teams in football control the LOS with their front 3 or 4. And we can't generate any pressure even when we blitz. And it's the weakness of our front 3.
Smitty's done. Hoke's done. Hampton might be done.
Keisel's playing at a high level. I don't know what we've got in Ziggy, Heyward, McClendon? But with these guys, I'm not sure we've got a dominant front. There's no one in that front that puts the fear of God in opposing offenses.
And if no one up front dominates, our OLBs are less effective. Our run defense is becoming suspect. And it's gonna put a lot of pressure on our secondary.
We need a Ngata, Suh, Smith, Seymore, etc.
Look at what Osi is doing to the complexion of the entire Giant's defense.
We need that one stud on the DLine. And it will make all the difference in the world on our defense.
Right now we're very mediocre across the board. And that's our biggest problem.
