Ok, so we're only three games into the preseason and Payne hasn't returned yet. I'm still worried about our D simply because I've seen very little penetration even when we call heavy blitzes. If we fail to produce a pass rush, I think our defense will turn out a similar performance to last season. Our pass defense will look horrible when the opposing QB has all day to throw the ball, period. That said, I'm not going to draw too many conclusions until mid-season when our DLine hopefully has had some time to adjust, and Dunta, Babin, and Coleman are more comfortable with their roles. I don't see Payne returning to pre-injury form this year, but I'd love to see him do just that. I still think his return will reap rewards for our pass rush.
