his team just gave up 45 points. shows ya how little effect a 2 gap NT has against passing game
this guy was 2nd team all pro and has a better supporting cast on defense then any rookie would have playing for us.
i wouldnt think about drafting a nose tackle until maybe our comp pick in the 3rd. more important to get players that can play the pass in the secondary
that game maybe a 1 off. but its not a 1 off with the rest of the league or even the college games he mentioned.
in back to back weeks this year, league records were broken for
1. scoring the most TDS in a week (believe it was just the sunday)
2. scoring the most points
Again, no Clowney in the top five.

KC has playmakers in the secondary... had 3 or 4 INT's and STILL gave up 45 points.
Its foolish to shrugg off a NT until the 3rd..especially if an NT in the 1st will see the field while our DB sits for a year or 3.
1) Jordan Phillips-DT-Oklahoma
2) Alex Carter-CB-Stanford
3) Geneo Grissom-OLB-Oklahoma
4) Kevin White-CB-TCU
5) Justin Coleman-CB-Tennessee
6) Blake Bell-TE-Oklahoma
7) Spencer Roth-P-Baylor
Contrary to what some think, the cupboard is not bare in the secondary. Do they need to invest a few high/middle round picks in the secondary? sure. Do those draft picks have to come to be plug and play guys? Depends on what happens in the FO this off season.
Our D was gashed against the run this year, so we need our NT play to be dominant. If it's by the draft, so be it, if it's by developing someone who is already on the roster... great. Suring up NT would also allow McClendon, Woods, etc to compete for a position they may be better suited for (DE). I think keeping Keisel around for another year (at a modest price tag) would provide much need leadership and depth.
mack in the 2nd?
sign me up!
KC runs a 3-4 and just gave up 45.... we also gave up 55 to the Pats. Should we abandon the 3-4 altogether?
I'm currently watching the Iggles vs Aints and it isnt an offensive explosion.
