How much of an impact will Will Smiths suspension have?
 
Who do you think is best suited to take his place at this point? Do you think we will see a huge drop off?

Stick Wilson and Galette on the ends and I think we'll be fine

I think the real problem will be on running downs. Smith is a solid defender against bot the run and the pass. Cameron Jordan can hold his own against a heavy running attack but I am not covinced that goes for Galette or Wilson yet.

About as much as it did when he was suspended for StarCaps.

If it's like his playing career, marginal at best.

Smith has been an above average NFL DE with the Saints and remained relatively healthy throughout his entire career.

Were you thinking of Charles Grant, maybe?

Charles Grant wasn't a terrible DE until his last year here. People need to understand the difference between being a solid player and being a superstar player.

The biggest problem with both has been the size of their contracts. Both solid. Average, inconsistent impact. Certainly not stars.

I think we have some guys that'll do pretty good fillin' his shoes. But we will be better when he comes back. The more talent we have to shuffle in and out the better.

Different year, different coordinator, different scheme... we could be seeing some beautiful things this season.
