Im having problems finding 'the guy' whos going to consistently show up for every game and make plays. Its too much to ask right now for a Ray Lewis/Urlacher type LB or a champ bailey type cornerback, but whos there to be an on the field leader? Im guessing Tebucky.

I think this is the year that Darren Howard steps up and takes that role. Darrin Smith has been in the league for a while and knows the ropes, but he\'ll be swapping time with Ruff. Tebucky could be a motivator as well as Victor Green, if we\'re able to snag him. Ashley Ambrose and Fred Thomas are a couple of other guys that we be on the field a lot, and both have plenty of experience. If all these guys can step up and help mold these younger guys, I really don\'t see a problem in this department. I just seriously think this is Darren\'s defense now.

People shouldn't be afraid of their government. Governments should be afraid of their people.

It\'s scary when you\"veteran leader\" is a guy who was drafted in 2000. Sure D is right there will be a decent number of guys on the field who have some experience, but I agree with jbutts. We don\'t have a consistent performer... other than Howard. There\'s no one guy on our defense who you know is going to give you a good performance every week. Hopefully some of these guys can develop into that, but...

My money\'s on DH to lead us. He\'s young, but he\'s been there and seen what we can do when we pull our heads out of our a----.

Ruff intrigues me though. I really do want to see what we can get out of him.

Agreed, we need a leader on the field. I too hope DH is the guy.

It sure is good to see these new guys posting in here. I\'m sure the older members are getting tired of taking pot shots at the rest of us old members LOL

jbutts, I would but i\'m afraid I wouldn\'t get much help from the other veteran members. These guys think of themselves as Saints too. LOL. There are however a few to watch for. All these guys are pretty cool. I just have to remind myself not to say anything too stupid. They\'ll nail me at every turn.LOL
