    I used to think Panthers, but they traded Davis and he was pretty old anyway.

    Cowboys have 4 bona fide above average quality starters including 2 bona fide young superstars and 1 ex superstar (albeit injury pronie). But only 3 positions in base and 2 in sub packages.

    It's so rare that you have 3 linebackers on the field, does it even matter?

    LVE and Smith are both special, hopefully Smith gives us a hometown discount.

    Maybe.

    Hard to go against KJ Wright and Bobby Wagner. No clue who their third 3LB is but with Wagner I doubt it hurts them if they have a potato as the SOLB.

    Yes, so long as Lee is healthy. LVE and Jaylon are only going to get better, and that's scary for the rest of the NFC.

    And let's not forget they have two backups with NFL starting experience. Joe Thomas started in Green Bay and Justin March-Lillard in Kansas City. This LB corps is stacked.

    Nah, I'll take CAR and SEA because they have better MLB and DC's.

    If you forget the IND and LAR games, they look a lot better.

    I wouldn't trade those 2 for LVE and Jaylon straight up.

    KJ and Wagner are studs but Jaylon and LVE are already producing and just have the upside to be difference making football players.

    Jaylon has top 5 in the draft pedigree and LVE got overlooked but IMO he's more talented then Jaylon.

    Prove it! No 100 yard rushers. Lowest amount of missed tackles among lbs. Can they do that? Also takeaways. How did we fair in those 3 categories last year? Hmmm

    Potentially. In fact, if X can start making plays, their back seven may be the best. I doubt any team has better depth at corner.

    They saved all the rushing yards for the playoff game against the Rams.
