J.Jo., Brooks Reed, Connor Barwin all regressed in 2012, as did Danieal Manning.
We need to get more out of these guys, and we need figure out a way to get our guys in better positions to succeed against top level QBs.
We had Mario & Demeco. Had we not lost those two (salary cap issues aside) we'd have made it through this.
I understand the Mario issue, I never said anything about letting him go to Buffalo. I said our biggest need became outside pass rusher & we need to address that in the offseason. They went & got Merciless...... which looked good on the surface, but I never expected that much drop off in both
Barwin & Reed.
& we've been reeling ever since Cushing went out. Keeping Demeco would have fixed that problem right there. He's not as good as Cushing, but he's a lot closer than Mr Alexander.
