It is really going to be interesting what happens this off-season with the defense. Pieces Horton has to like are Rubin, Taylor, Rucker and Sheard. All of them translate to the 3-4 or 4-2 hybrid. He also has to like D'Qwell and our ILB youth. It would be pretty insane if our new FO didn't address OLB/DE or CB, where an impact player is needed badly. It could happen in free agency as we are no longer bound by the old paradigm of building only through the draft. If we can satisfy these positions by that route, the draft is more interesting. We have a pretty good team. I think Norv and Chud like our roster including the QB and know it was mis-managed. They simply cannot tell anyone that. By keeping open competition and never revealing their hand, they can get the most and best production from all.
