i was concerned about having to replace three senior defensive linemen that played a lot, with a lot of inexperience. Then I remembered how poorly those three seniors performedRegarding last year's D line: I have a close friend who is a football coach and I was having a beer with him after they won their first round payoff game a few years back. I mentioned that the team they played looked pretty damn good in pre-game, big, strong, fast etc. He laughed and said they lost every pre-game they had that season. (they were undefeated on the year ) His well made point was looking the part is one thing, actually producing real results is quite another thing. IMHO last year's defensive line looked the part too much and produced real tangible results ( much of it stat packing) when it didn't effect the outcome of winnable games. Sacks , TFL's, turnovers to win games did not happen from this group last year. Yes, I know, they weren't the only problem. So, my long winded point is that this year's group may not shine getting off the bus but they may play better assignment specific team ball, greater as a whole with less as parts. I think we will be surprised with this overall young group this year.
