    McDonald is ok not great so is A Spence but DT is not the worst unit on this team where it does feature a pro bowl DT and some compliment players like players mentioned above, PR try looking at the safety position that features McDougald, Conte and Tandy if you want a position of mediocrity

      I’d agree with both of those comments – McDonald is a JAG as far as I can tell; Safety is a disaster waiting to happen this year…all that blitzing that we’re supposedly going to be doing is going to show whether Safety matters or not I suppose…

    I have to agree with jongruden about the Safety’s; I’m hoping the CB’s this year can help the slow play of the present Safety’s.

      Oh, I forgot about the cB whose is going to plsy Safety that we drafted.

    Sorry jongruden, but I believe McDonald is more than nust :ok.”
    Would rather give players an A to F rating and in this scenario McDonald is definitely a solid B. Ok is average and I just think McDoanald is more than just an average player.
    Injuries happen to players at sometime in their career. It’s just a matter of time and when it is going to be, today or tomorrow.
    Football is a brutal sport.

    We should be good at DT as I’m sure they’ll be moving some guys around. I can see Gholston playing some DT as well.

    I agree on the safeties but at the same time I like the “wait and see” approach. Maybe the scheme change will make a big impact. We shall see
