  2. Because at this point, Edwards is the superior player. He has double the sacks that Biermann has had in the past two seasons and is a much better run defender. Biermann is better in a rotation and helping out on ST's. Even if he does become a 7+ sack guy (which he has not proven) we still need to continue to build our pass rush with the possibility that Abraham will be gone after next season. Edwards is already a very solid player in the run game and as a pass rusher. But the fact that he is only 26 is what leads me to believe that he still has room to grow.
  3. The thing about Edwards is that he is almost as good as you are going to get in FA. Everybody wants a double digit sack guy, but those guys rarely get a chance to hit the open market. Even if they do, you see them get paid these outrageous contracts that can cripple a franchise. If we can get Edwards for 5-7 Mil a year, I would be pleased. He isn't an elite DE, but he is definitely very solid in all facets of the game. He is still young at 26 and has yet to reach his ceiling. He is a guy who has proven that he can get a team 7+ sacks a year and should be able to help out our defense for aw
  4. The main difference is that Julio is coming into a situation where he doesn't have to be "the guy". Most first round receivers go to teams that really have very little and they are forced to be the primary weapon almost immediately. His transition should be much easier because we already have established targets in Roddy, Turner & Gonzalez who all require attention from defenses. I honestly think he will make an immediate impact because of it.
  5. I think we go: 1. TE Jordan Cameron 2. CB Curtis Brown 3. RB Jordan Todman
  6. I know we gave up a bunch to get Jones, but it makes complete sense. At this point, we don't need a bunch of new rookies to come in and try to fill holes. If you look at our roster, we really do not have any positions where there is not already a solid player in place. Going into the draft, our two biggest needs were seemingly WR and DE. We potentially hit a home-run with the WR and all indications are that it would make total sense that TD makes a move for a FA DE that would have an immediate impact on our defense. I don't think TD wanted to simply fill these two holes. He wanted to get
  7. 1. OT Derek Sherrod- He is getting over-analyzed, but looks like a very good LT prospect who still has the ability to play multiple positions.
  8. Its all about the scheme and overall mentality of the team. We love to run the ball, control the clock and minimize the risk of turnovers. We basically try to run a simple gameplan with the focus of not beating ourselves. The Packers go out and beat teams. They are aggressive on both offense and defense. They make some mistakes, but they have more than enough fire power to overcome them. We just have to get to a certain point where we trust Matt Ryan and the rest of the talent around him enough to play with the same kind of aggressiveness that teams like the Packers do. We are still a
  9. I think its all about the bad situations that we put ourselves in. I never sit in my seat and feel like I don't know what is coming. When we run the ball, we bring in two TEs and sometimes Svitek. Teams have just caught on to the fact that we aren't going to try and trick or get fancy them. We are going to line up in our sets and make the other team stop us. Unfortunately, that doesn't work against good teams. The same thing goes for when we pass the ball. We constantly put ourselves in bad situations like 3rd and 7+ yards. Its no secret that we are going to pass and teams know it. W
  10. Lofton is abysmal in zone coverage and should only play 2 downs. He just looks lost and really gets turned around a bunch. He is more of a downhill guy who looks like he would be better if he played in a more aggressive scheme where he wouldn't have to play back on his heels so much. It is part of the reason why our cover 2 zone defense is so weak. A MLB in that type of defense has to be GREAT in coverage. he just doesn't fit that mold. He may even be a SLB. If we continue to run this soft defense, I think we could possibly see Weatherspoon move to the middle in passing situations.
  11. I don't think that one player is stopping us from running a more aggressive scheme. Its even possible that both Dunta and Grimes could play the receivers different. They don't have to line up the exact same way. We just have to change the mentality. Its as simple as that. I could understand why we have played this way because we are extremely young, but something has to change or we will continue to get picked apart by good QBs. We may not have 11 superstars, but we definitely have enough pieces to be a better defense than what we are.
  12. The majority of the problem is not the players. It is the scheme and the overall mentality that we have as a defense. We have given up huge chunks of yards all year long simply because we rely on being able to use the "bend but don't break defense" formula. That explains why our CBs play 10 yards of the LOS, we rarely blitz and we see plenty of 3 or 4 man rushes while our DBs sit back in a soft zone the majority of the time. Unfortunately, we played an extremely talented team with an very good QB who cashed in on many of those opportunities. Although we are a young, I think you would be

  14. It's unfortunate, but at some point, we are going to have to make some serious changes on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball. We simply cannot continue this formula of "playing not to lose." Offensively: 1. Our gameplan hasn't changed all season long. Instead of exploiting the weaknesses of other teams, we prefer to stick with one particular way and it really hurts our chances against playoff caliber teams. We saw a good offense like the Packers come in and take full advantage of a new guy like Owens playing in our secondary. But I remember playing the Bucs with a PS pla
