Re: Attacking D = Reboot

The cap space will come in awfully handy.  Guard, lbers, free safety, real fb, blocking te.

If the Browns stay at 6, the pass rush olb. 

If gone, the second cb, or trade down to pick up the second rounder.

A year in transition might see more blowouts than this past season, but the defense wasn't as good as many believed anyway.
good points

We have been so devoid of high quality talent and production for so long, we have come to accept mediocre as excellence.  Ward is a good in the box run stuffing safety, at least when he maintains scheme integrity and Haden is quality. DQ has been missing so often it is hard to count on him. Indeed we do need an influx of quality and dependable.

Defense wasn't all that good. Suffering close loses by a thousand paper cuts isn't winning. Jauron did well with what he had, but the D couldn't get off the field and rarely delivered a knock-out blow. Hard to think of them as dominating.

Chud will undeservedly suffer slings and arrows.
