hodgec2 Posted April 25, 2010 Share Posted April 25, 2010 Alright guys below is what I think about our defense going forward. DEI see no reason why a Division 2 DE in his 3rd year will not improve. He had 6 or 8 sacks as a rotational guy. I think Bierman will have a monster year this year. It just makes since if you look at his first 2 years in the league that Kroy is about to be an impact player. I also feel Sidbury being in his 2nd year out of D2 will have significant improvement like Bierman did last year. As far as Abe goes I think he will be somewhere between 2008 and 2009. He won't have 16.5 halfs, but will have more than 6. Chauncy and Jamaal are both good against the run and will be good in rotation.DTI do think Peters was drafted not only as depth, but also as insurance for Babs suspension and Jerry's knee. Our rotation of Walker, Jerry, Babs, Jamaal and Peters will keep Olines on their heels. They are not space eaters but relentless penetrating guys (that's what she said) that will make the interior of an oline continue to work.LBHopefully our starters are Spoon, Nicholas and Lofton. Spoon and Lofton will be 3 down linebackers and Nicholas will be 2 downs. Both Nicholas and Spoon can get to the QB, which will allow us to blitz more. Also, Spoon immediately helps pass coverage. Mike Pete is the perfect back up because he can play all 3 positions and Wire is a core special teams guy that can step in for Spoon in the nickel if needed.CBMy guess is our core CBs will be Robinson, Grimes and Owens. The rookie and Chevis will be added depth. Brian Williams should be listed as CB/S. I think this group is a huge upgrade from last year and will allow BVG to have a more attacking defense.SThe coaches are hoping that Moore wins the SS job and of course Decoud will be our FS. If this happens Coleman could easily be the backup at SS and possibly FS. Do not be surprised to see Brian Williams play some safety alongside Decoud in passing situations. Overall if healthy (Big IF) I think this defense has the chance to be noticeably better than last year. Listening to Thomas D over the last week or so I will be shocked and very disappointed if we are not a blitzing team this year. I think they now have confidence in the back end of our defense to take more chances in the front 7. My thoughts, kill it or endorse it, I don't care.
