    You can't fix the O line THIS YEAR in the draft. You draft PROSPECTS. To have to count on a draftee to start, especially a guy who was the 7th or 8th best O linemen in the draft is very bad policy.
    If you wanted to fix the O line THIS YEAR, you sign a vet who you can plug into that spot.

    Especially in our scheme.

    And tackles will come down in price very quickly with the market the way it is,
    If we sign Eric Winston all with be forgiven for me.
    Linebackers are apart of the secondary. Especially in our scheme since we dont blitz often.

    No they aren't Dez. You've got to be kidding me.

    Our defense is based on 2 things.
    Disrupting the QB.
    Creating turnovers.

    BTW....given today's rules, that's essentially the basis for most every defense. Or at least their aspirations.

    Our linebackers drop back in coverage a majority of the time. Theres no denying this, its fact.

    Many people consider linebackers apart of the secondary, especially since the leagues becoming more passer friendly.

    it's not really coincidence that alot of the top defenses in the league sport pretty good LBs.....in my opinion anyway...

    I've never heard anyone refering to LB's as "secondary".
    The secondary is the corners and safeties.
    Thechicality I suppose. But without technicalities we have chaos.

    errr, i consider LBs secondary also....the term "getting into the 2nd level" mean past the line into LB territory....i consider them part of both run stopping and pass defense.

    So what? They aren't "the secondary".

    Ask anyone when they refer to the secondary, if they are including Linebackers.
    Its complete nonsense.
