    Where’s our DE’s? I sure hope GM is out trying to put a trade together.

    Lovie announced today that he was taking Defensive play calling responsibility away from DC Leslie Frazier, and taking over that responsibility himself. I wonder why that wasn’t newsworthy, and why you keep a DC that you don’t trust to call plays.

    Melton is the best DE prospect we have and he is great against the run from that position too. We also need Gholston to step up as he did today. He is not only strong inside, when you hit a strong running team we need Gholston playing opposite Melton at the other DE position. He is tough against the run. If we hit a team that easily stops our speed rushers put Melton and Gholston on the ends and bull rush and collapse them backwards from each end. Underweight McCoy will never make All Pro until he gets back up to 300 pounds. He is less dominating than McDonald right now. No wonder he is chippy and angry these days!
