Re: Dennis Allen is unleashing the Defensive Line this season.

rob tried read and react with this group and failed. we did not draft a DT to solve that issue so the only thing left is penetration on the DL. welcome back Gregg Williams mentality.

issue 1 - will the DL hold up against traps and quick hitters?
issue 2 - can the safeties improve in run support?
issue 3 - can the CB do the same an improve in run support?

issue 2 and 3 really worries me. drafting players at the second and third levels with good run support skill has not been a high priority really in the past few drafts.

a flock of veteran LB does make me feel better

Roman Harper anyone... PJ Williams was also big in run support in his college days. I expect Williams to be the slot.

just as long as we arent too predictable. I imagine there is a fine line.

Both Harper and Vaccaro are at their best around the box hitting people. I Think we'll be fine in that aspect.

Re: Dennis Allen is unleashing the Defensive Line this season.

Designing a defense around the players' strengths. What a novel idea. Why didn't they think of this sooner?
