Severely restructure both Smith's and Ellis' contracts and if they're not willing to do that... let them and their huge contacts go. That alone would free up a combined cap hit of $16M for 2012.

Then use most of that to sign Haloti Ngata in FA and all problems with the front 4 will disappear with maybe the best DT in the league.

The only thing that "fears" this foursome is food.

And it needs to be a threesome, with four linebackers behind it.

I didn't like our draft picks at DE. The knock on them was lack of speed.

So it should be a surprise we can get after the QB.

Also we are slow at OLB. DE and OLB need to be upgraded if we are going to have a pass rush.

There have been times this season where Tez reminded me of Swilling, its time to get some guys with speed at DE cause with a decent pass rush, the rest of the defense would improve

Wilson shows promise, Jordan will get better. Agreed our DB's are good and would be better if the front four could get pressure and we had aggressive LB's. Dunbar, Cassillas, and Wilson are workable but need a strong killer LB to lead.

If I was the Saints I would cut Will Smith and go after Osi Umenyiora I don't think the Giants want to pay him go get him.
