If we could finally see that mythical group of starters playing together then the weak link is definitely the D-Line. We need a pass rushing DT so desperately bad. How many of our defensive woes would be solved by a disruptive 3-Technique?!
True, for many years all we had were 3-tech DT's and no one capable of playing the 2-gap DT.

Hicks was supposed to be that 3-4 DE, 4-3 2-gapper that we really needed.

His regression really hurt us this year. I truly thought he'd be that guy on the D-line. I was so wrong. Looked like Tarzan, played like Jane.

Also, losing Glenn Foster really hurt us as well. He looked to be a very promising 3-tech DT. I think he was the was the reason we let Tom Johnson go, then Foster gets hurt and goes on IR. Argghhh!

Just bad luck I guess.

NEW YORK (AP) - The National Football League injury report, as provided by the league (OUT - Definitely will not play; FULL - Full participation in practice):

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS at WASHINGTON REDSKINS - SAINTS:

DNP - Did not practice;
T Terron Armstead (knee),CB Brian Dixon (hip), LB Dannell Ellerbe (hip), LB David Hawthorne (hamstring), LB Ramon Humber (hamstring), CB Damian Swann (concussion),

LIMITED - Limited participation in practice;
LB Hau'oli Kikaha (ankle), G Tim Lelito (shoulder), WR Willie Snead (knee).

Swann is still a huge concern IMO. His playing time minizes the troubles Browner can get into. Ok there is no stopping him but minimizing is a good thing.
