Re: what is our biggest need?

If we want to stop the run we need a solid run stuffer that can disrupt two gaps at once and push the pocket back on the QB when we are bringing the pressure and we need an aggressive fast smart player with good instincts to play DE. Can our young players step up at LBer? On offense I want a smart nasty center to hang out with Carl Nicks. Also, safety needs an upgrade.....I'm less than impressed with Young.

I'm sticking with DT. In the run happy NFC South, it is absolutely NECESSARY to stuff the run. I reallize we won more games than we lost, but I remember Carolina, Tampa, Miami, and Dallas, having big rushing performances against us. That needs to change.

What he said. I voted DE, but anybody who can improve the D line would be huge. I agree there is probably enough young talent in the LB's to pick a new starter there.
