or the defense was not all that great as a unit in the first place

Inconsistent production?

6.5 sacks is good but 21st ranked DT in hurries?

I would have to say Inconsistent production.

Not his fault really as I wrote about.

Lets see what another year as a unit does

He also works out with this machine.

I noticed they have a bunch of them for when they break on his one on one drills.

I surely would have loved to grab a NT myself Hagen. Could have made the front 4 something to contend with. Maybe next year?

How many 4-3 teams really have good NT's nowadays? I'm talking about really good NT's not just ok players like Tyeler Davison. With pressuring the QB at a premium it doesn't seem like there's a lot. I can't really research it right now but off the top of my head: Giants (Damon Harrison), Bills (Marcell Dareus)... I know there's a few more but I'm having a brain fart.

Right! If they were readily available every team would have them. If one was out there that had more overall value to the team than whomever we picked up instead ... can someone point them out? Free agents? Drafted rookies that are nothing more than a gamble?

I hear good things about the mammoth we stole off someone's practice squad at the end of last year.
