You can go to buy a new car no matter the brand, if there is no gas or motor the car is no good. Take the Chargers, their pass rushers were feared with a good nose up front, when Williams was not there they were average at best this also made Antonio Cromartie look bad . I feel with the motor (Mccoy) & gas (Price) our defense will ride good .
Wilkerson had 6.5 sacks last year, White had 6, and Chowder had 3.5 isn't it fair to say that those totals will increase by 3 with a push upfront . Even though we don't have Wilkerson the DEs will still benefit who ever is out there . Ruud, Hayes, and Black are good players not the best although I feel Hayes will grow into an all-pro player, but these guys will benefit form the guys up front . This next area is the one that I will go out on a limb for, Barber, Talib, Jackson, & Jones will grow into 1 of the best secondaries in the league in 2010. With the new DTs this group will see 2 to 3 players go to the pro bowl .
If you know football you know that teams are built from the inside out . Tampa line started losing its stability slowly after we lost Sapp, the players we brought in to fix the problem were just temporary stabilizers . We all should be excited about the addition of Mccoy and Price. What Mccoy is to our D is what Ryan was for the Falcons O and Sean Jones is to the secondary what Turner is for their run game . If you think these guys are less than stellar than once the season starts you will be surprised .
