The bad news is that our defensive players are continuing to age and we are trying to replace them with inferior players. It's not like we haven't spent high picks on defense. It's that these high picks are not developing and performing at the level their expected. That might work when it's 1 player. You can disguise it. Right now, we are weak at multiple positions.
Weak at S sans Troy.
Weak at CB. Ike is only solid one and he is getting old.
Weak at OLB with 92 out.
Weak at DL? Maybe.
IDK, I think we are even weak at ILB; Timmons misses tackles all day long.

Are things really this bleak? They might be.
