We need to replace Farrior, NT and G ASAP.
The rest are solid. We can't have all-pros at every position in this era.
Who said anything about having all-pros at every position? In general, with our D, I'm more concerned with having someone who can step in and play "above the line" in case a starter gets hurt, and who will eventually be able to take over as a starter (although, as I said, when it comes to LB's, we need to have playmakers). The more +30-year-olds you have, the more you have to start thinking about this... even if they don't have a lot of "tread" on them, as they age, their bodies become more prone to break down and it takes longer for them to recover from injuries.
