Remember how we we cap strapped in the '01 season with 27 mil worth of dead money...our defense that year finished 4 statistically we had 24 sacks as a team
And then remember the QB carosel we had with QC, Wright, Stoerner, and Leaf on offense.
In '02, we added, Glover Ross, Williams and Hardy..results? we went from 4th overall defense to 18th...and still the same lousy 24 sacks
Now, our offense receded in '02 due to horrific OL play and injuries, poor QB play but still...we went from 4th overall to 18th with better talent which was, and still is being misutilized
Zimmer does less with more...and we continue to pay against teams with good offensive talent
Unless things change, the Eagles will hang 30 or more on us twice
One can add Seattle and GB to that list too, but IMHO, the Fecals are the cream of the crop in the NFC
