It's because those pieces on defense are at CB, S and Cam Jordan plus a bunch of rookies but we were most certainly dreadfully bad because we were below average at the LB spot. The defense was a broken group, it didn't transition well from one level to the next. It reflected the coaching, filled with uncertainty, change and philosophy. Some of those good pieces were meant for a 34. Some were meant for a 43. Some were meant to play zone and some were meant for man. Because we've flipped flopped schemes for so long and drafted according to that scheme we've become the most versatile defense in the league and it shows on the field because we sucked in every different situation imaginable.

We lack team speed on defense so badly its pathetic.
We are a slow team. True enough.

It really hits you how slow our defense is when you watch the number 1 defense in football literally win the SuperBowl on their own.

Jordan

Given the FACT they ranked so low, yes the rest is crap. Ellerbe made his name playing next Ray Lewis and hasn't done a thing since leaving Balt

I think we used to be with Lofton, Hawthorne, Browner,

Byrd, Vaccaro, Lewis, Breaux, Anthony, Kikaha, Ellerbe, and Jordan are not slow.

Throw in PJ Williams and Davis Tull and we have pretty good speed.

We could definitely use some more speed at OLB and DT/DE, but I wouldn't say were slow anymore.

So, this contract is really a two year prove it deal. Even at seven million a year which seems a little expensive it's great to give Drew a big target.
