Too bad one was not available with our #18 pick this year... Oh, wait a second....
Oh, please. We're drafting another tight end since Escobar can't block.
Sorry, but a guy who had fewer than five career college sacks is not a franchise 3-tech.
I tend to agree with this.
I used to live by that saying but the last few years the Super Bowl winning team has convinced me that isn't always the case.
This is just to illustrate how dire our DL were when we started to pick people off the streets to play for us in the pre season. They were suppose to be camp bodies but now turning into starters?! Great that they appear to be doing alright for NOW. They were on the street for a reason. I am all for FA making impact when our scouts are doign their jobs. . I don't want to see another season like last where our DL was depleted and completely worn down when other team just ran through us.
3 guys will likely take most of the snaps (Ware, Spencer, Hatcher) so the rotation that we have should keep us going...
Wilbur worries me. He hasn't done anything this preseason to show that he can be a reliable backup to Ware.
Marrineli over time has shown the knack for "coaching them up"......so unless they start churning the DL with cuts from other team, I'll trust Marinelli's opinion.
Definitely high on the list along with another DE, another starting caliber DT and a guard or two.
Really need Wilcox and Parnell to develop into long term starters.
...but you absolutely CANNOT get by with bad trenches on both sides of the ball - period.
