If Anthony makes half his tackles, he's better than Hawthorne (period)...

It's apparent that Hawthorne's best days were behind him before Loomis signed him...

Hawthorne has an uphill battle. It does help that he is back playing his position.

Is that who the fans think are the best players or who the coaches think are the best players?

Really like the first part of your post; what worries me is if their is a reluctance to play the rookies...

He'll come back this season strong and re-dedicated...

We do need to keep looking to draft, sign top flight Nose Tackles for the defense to remain respectable at a minimum...
That was when a 4-3 was being played. If we go 3-4 and neither Bunkley or Jenkins hold ground while taking on double teams I think we would have to go back to a 4-3, I hope they can if not I would see if the 5th round pick at NT could, quick. I like Davidson.

Well, John Jenkins and Brodrick Bunkley will tell you they were facing double teams at the Nose Tackle...

The only reason why we weren't more in a true 3-4 is because Parys Haralson lacked top end speed and Junior Gallete lacked range to cover and discipline against the run...

Personnel has changed dramatically this offseason, so we should see what has been talked about the past two offseasons...

and playing more 3-4 means we can rotate DT's more. Just get the freshest, most skilled players out there for each play, whether it's 3-4, 4-3, or nickel

Let's be honest- when we were running that 3 safety set we really just didn[t have much else
