Problem is until this season, we haven't "drafted" defense into our team. We're always scabbing it through free agency.
Jordon
Jenkins
Hicks
Galettw
Wilson
Ellis
Harper
And many more
We have drafted tons of defense, even in the first round. They just rarely pan out the way we hope

You're right. It's true. And I have more hope with recent picks.

Humber would do well, Tez could probably be an All-Pro.

I think we have definitely done better recently. Vaccaro is already balling and Hicks and Jordon keep getting better and better. I like what I see from Wilson and Junior as well.

This is about Lofton isn't it.... He is not suited to play where he currently is, but how can you move him to where he is designed to be if the guy who your hamstrung yourself to ( vilma) is never healthy!!!!

Re: Lofton cover skills again

Lofton is a good player. Yes, he is not perfect and he struggles in pass coverage sometimes. That does not mean you just throw him away. He has too many other excellent qualities. Ya'll act like we are talking about Orlando Ruff or Mark Simoneau or something. Lofton is miles better than any of those guys.

And are we really griping because one of our better defensive players got beat by Tony Gonzales? Guess what, a lot of good players have been beat by Gonzales.

Hell, Jimmy Graham had 100 something yards and 2 TDs against the 49ers in that playoff game. Were their fans whining about how awful Patrick Willis or Navarro Bowman were?

Lets bench brees because he can't run the ball when the pocket breaks down whilst we are at it
