Default For the love of God... We NEED a space eating NT now more than ever!

We have been angry with the front office for years over this, a big body in the middle. This should be the year we get a big boy on the front line of our defense.

Better hope it's a FA of some kind, because if they expect a rookie to come in and man the nose in a 3-4 it could be awfully ugly here again.

I dunno...Jay Ratliff played 3-4 as their NT...at 6-4, 300...which isn't near the space eater that more 3-4s covet.

It's going to one interesting off-season.

Yeah, and at San Diego, he had 348 lb. (cough, cough) Jamal Williams.

Both Ratliff and Williams are/were pro-bowlers, so it will be interesting to see what we end up with. It's kind of nice to know that there's not just one kind of guy who can fit Wade's defense at that position.

Williams missed of the season - Antonio Garay manned the spot for the chargers

Get a couple of fat bodies, but start Mario there. Let Amobi and Smith play the ends. That way you can start off upgrading your DB's and LB's and also upgrading your interior O-line and receivers...

Where on the interior line though? RG?

Center and Left Guard were great this year compared to years past.

I was thinking RG or even a RT and moving Winston to RG...

It seems that Winston has been suspect at times this year...

I think both of our T's would be better G's. Brown would be an pro bowler on the inside.

Mario agrees with you.

Williams also said the Texans will need to get a massive nose tackle to clog the middle to make a 3-4 alignment work.

"We've got big guys, but it's just a totally different animal," he said.

That guy might actually be on the team right now ..... Shaun Cody had a pretty damn good season. I think he was the best player on the DL for much of the year. Made plays all over the field.


Ive stated this a dozen times or more here but it's always overlooked ....

The main problem with this defensive front is what the DT's are asked to do which is penetrate rather than push the pocket what this has done is always left a place for the QB to step up away from the outside rush which just gets run right by on the back side. They have always left angles for the QB because of what they have been asked to do ....


Maybe a change in scheme and responsibility is what this defensive front needs. Especially 0k0ye , I think he's better suited to a 3-4 DE rather than a 4-3 DT .....
