Yes, Swearinger and Wilcox were my favorites.
If you have a stock Z06 Corvette and in year 8 of ownership and after a lot of miles, you add a supercharger and really like the increased performance, are you not going to wish you'd had that supercharger much earlier? Of course you are. It's still an awesome car either way, but it clearly performs better one way vs. the other.
I'll give you a +1 on that post WG.
I really hope that Ratliff can give us a full, healthy season. While he had a few amazing years at NT in the 3-4, he was far from the "prototype" player for the position. I feel like he's much more of a natural fit in the C2/T2(ish) scheme. Unfortunately, we might be making the switch a couple of years too late to maximize his potential in the system. This is a defensive scheme that can give you a top-5 defense, but if you can't get elite performance from 2-3 of your DL's (especially up the middle), you're going to struggle.
It's actually better. The supercharger would add more strain to the older engine. Moving Rat to the 3-tech will be more like removing 1000 lbs from the car.
I might. In all honestly, I'd probably not let the new circumstances bum me out about the old one. But, like most things in life, changes are usually a mixed bag. They might end up being mostly positive...I hope in this case they do. But we got really, really good value out of Jay Ratliff in terms of the resources it took to draft him and what we ended up paying him, overall. I'm happy to count my blessings in that regard.
