OLB more than DT, but OT the most

You asked for opinions - so here\'s mine. LB.

I don\'t think we\'ll be a balanced team until we can get a run stuffer (and I don\'t mean just a situational player like Ruff). Know what I mean?

Until we can prove to the world otherwise, teams are just going to continue to run over us.

OL OL OL... the most. You have key play makers making good money to get sacked, stuffed, or not enough time to get into a route. Make us look sick or something. They need help! More time with the ball means less time our D will be on the field, making them look better already, and pray ya get some help on D and some of them DEVELOP.

oh and Aaron Brooks.

OLB! We got smoked so much by teams on the outside that we received a warning from the Surgeon General!

it sounds like they will sign someone to OT but are not too interested in the free agent LB market. think how bad the LBs were and subtract hodge. as poor as he was, that still ain\'t better. unless they move up for DJ, the next level of LB\'s in the draft (burnett, blackstock, thurman, etc.) are similar to watson... could be good, could play a significant role, but not a write-in starters out of the draft. when your safeties lead the team in tackles that sez one thing, where are the linebackers? not only do i see that as the weakest link but i am terribly afraid it will be the same crew with another rookie thrown in as the answer. with no DT to plug the middle yet that will still yield games having worn out emmitt smith\'s and rookie\'s running for 100+ yds. again.

I think our front office has been hanging with Rickey too long...
