Re: Are we better on Defense?

With the additions of Okafor, Klein, resigning Fairley and firing the Byrdman we're a helluva a lot better already. If KI can play and stay healthy and we pick up a couple of DE and CB in the draft we will be 100% better than last year I would say pushing top 10 defense material. Offense is always top 5. I agree with JP with the addition of Nolan and Nielsen it's even better!

Yes we have and with the new talent coming in from pick 11, 32. Then we sign Butler, hell yes by mid season we will be a top 10 D. Wouldn't that be just amazing

We're only as good as our stats say we are. Until they hit the field it's anyone's guess. We looked better on defense every offseason for the past few years.

I want some of what your smoking. Top 10? Seriously? I'll be happy with top 20.

As he is finally healthy, we should ride the Byrdman one more year.

I might have to agree with you since I'm totally wasted right now!

If PJ Williams can still remember how to spell PJ then we sure are in better shape now just getting some of these guys back on the field.

I'll be happy if we can actually keep our starters healthy for more than just a few games
