At the risk of sounding critical - the inattention to defensive needs it indisputable and inexplicable.


While it's true they could and should have done even more to help the defense along this offseason it truly makes you wonder why the last bunch neglected it for years.   I think I'll give the new guys more then one offseason since I was willing to give the other guys several years before I turned on them. 

In all frankness, they didn't exactly know what they had on defense. They had several young players who had been waiting their turn to start and they wanted to see what they could do. They are playing like young, inexperienced players, which is to be expected. Whether they develop into legitimate NFL starters, only time will tell, but to keep these guys on the bench and plug in older free agents only would have clouded the long-term picture. Monte's partially to blame for this since he always waited just a little too long to start giving the young guys in-game experience.

Right off the top of my head, I haven't seen any of those who "didn't get experience" show much so far. I don't count Talib as he played a lot last year.

Really?  I think Geno has been our best linebacker.  He's no slouch on special teams either.


John Galt?

I think Cutler would have been marvelous in Tampa with the current O personnel - now play calling is iffy - but he would have been a very nice upgrade.

Lynch, Quarles, Brooks and Barber didn't look that great their first years as starters either. In fact, Lynch (on of my all time favorite players), looked worse than Sabby has his first year.

Geno is hit or miss.  It seems like he blows up 1-2 running plays in the backfield a game, but then will miss an assignment later on.  But man does he react quick on those run plays he blows up.

John Galt?

I think he was missing more assignments earlier in the year than lately. I think (and hope) he'll continue to improve and will be a damn good lb in a yr or 2.

If Geno could work on his coverage skills he could be one heck of a linebacker for us.

Only a B for the K2 trade? Kinda stingy dontcha think? IMO, that move deserves an A+.
