Even though we're calling him a DE right now, the weakside DE is playing just like a 4-3 DT. He'll have the same two guys in front of him as he's always had (with the exception of Watt)
If the injury is the problem, let's address the injury. Doesn't make sense to fix
the DL because you have an injured LB.
Back in 2009, it was still Demeco, Cushing, & Diles making tackles in the back field.
There is more than one way to skin a cat. It's more about execution than philosophy. This is the philosophy Wade has chosen to go with, get on board.
