THE only thing I would worry about on this D would be the ILB position, I think if there is a weak link it would be our middle, bring Smith in the middle I believe would shut down the middle and make other teams have to run the edges,and I would say good luck with it.

Also that would free up Harper to do his thing on occasion.

Re: Junya First in Line?

The thing I've always noticed about the 34, is that if you're strong up the middle, you will generally have a very stout defense. The reason I say this is because it's very hard to run outside against a 34 as opposed to a 43, so most teams that are sucessful against the 34 do it by being extremely physical and ramming the ball up the middle. When the defense starts to tire, then the game is open for the taking. If we have enough good players to stay fresh all game and all season long and we play halfway decent, this will still be a tough defense to beat.

I've thought that too and we've sure brought in some monsters to help out Bunkley this offseason.

I hope teams do try to run us to death. Our offense is back now that Paytons back and if teams want to run against a offense that puts up thirty with ease then let them run like Gump. Our defense will be middle of the pack at the worst.
