    We need to give Smith some help at DL. If we could pry away Kwon Shorts from Carolina it helps us and hurts them. A better pass rush helps DB’S ALOT.

    I was impressed with Smith this year. I knew it was going to be a shaky start for the defense with a new scheme and all, and that looked to be the case. But after that Monday night Carolina game, with all of those starters out, I knew something clicked on this defense. I can’t wait for next season after they add some talent to the roster and the guys have been in this defense for a full year, and two off seasons. It’s going to be something to watch. Especially if they get the offense going.
