    I'm very surprised at the lack of trades.

    I like the players we chose... I have a tough time making the math work for the defensive line if we do go to the 3-4 full time. I can't see having Ellis or Glover sit on the bench. That would just be asinine.

    Consider that the average plays a D is on the field for is around 65... most starters play around 40... I can see with the various rotations that they should be able to get 30 to 40 snaps for each Ellis, Glover, Ferggy, Spears, Ware... the rest falls to the scrubs Carson, Coleman, and Ogbogu...

    I thought there would be a few more too Michael. Just no one wanted to dance.

    I don't see us doing 3-4 full time either. They'll do what they said and that is do both. I suspect we'll see more of it. A good bit more at least at first depending on how they do and how camp goes.

    Ellis and Glover are half of the line. It is crazy to think they will sit a lot. We are not only on the same page but nearly word for word on this one.

    You pay a guy the amount that Ellis and Glover are getting and given their ability they need to be on the field more than 40 plays. And who says starters play around 40?

    If BP is telling us that ware reminds him some of LT (or even an Abraham or McGinest), I'll bet you Spears reminds him a lot of Leonard Marshall

    Actually Nors, Ware will be playing a lot of 4-3 DE. He certainly not an exclusive 3-4 OLB. In fact, it will be moreso the other way.
