I think McCain is a great nickel defender I'm surprised at how low grade is. Just a hunch but I would think most DB's do not grade out high because of what a disadvantage they are at in today's game. Quin grading out positive is pretty impressive.

Barwin is gone. A lower-tier team will reach for him and hope for the best. If we really do believe in Mercilus then we should go with Mercilus. If we think Barwin is better than he showed this year, then we should pay up. I don't see us paying up.

Barwin primarily had one big game last year. It really reminds me of the occasional big game Williams had. The consistency is severely lacking. It's not just the overall number of sacks going up or down from 1 year to the next; it's the fact that some players get almost all of them for the year in 1 or 2 games.

He needs to go...

Since Barwin was overlooked to be re-signed in September, and his performance declined this season, it's safe to say that he'll be let go.

Connor finished 14th in the NFL in Tackles for Losses, higher than guys like JPP, Cameron Wake & Tamba Hali.

I agree he had a bad season, and wouldn't mind not seeing him re-signed, but just thought I'd share.

While looking up these rankings, Watt is in the lead of course. But it's amazing he more than doubled the value of the #3 guy. He even had 14 more than #2 Von Miller. Amazing!

Funny thing is he did the same thing in 2010. He was great in 2009, garbage in 2010. Great in 2011, garbage in 2012.

Next year he's going to be a stud.

This is the reason why I'd take barwin as a solb. Solid against the run, but wouldn't be counted on the consistently generate a pass rush. That's be the wolb's job.

Give me Connor on the strongside and Move Brooks to ILB. His skill set is much better for ILB then OLB rushing the passer most downs. That would give us 4 LB's with great speed and pass rushing ability...

My sentiments exactly, with Mercilus at WOLB, Reed and Cushing on the inside, and Barwin at SOLB. Reed adds size and side line to side line speed. We'd need some depth but this would make for an awsome LB corp..

Lock up Quin. The rest can be used as roster fillers after we scour through other FAs throughout the league.

I do not understand why they didn't do this. I guess because of 2010 season where they tried Cushing in Demeco's spot and it was a mess...

I think Reed and Cushing would be great ILBs, Mercilus and whom ever, hell sign Barwin to a 1 year deal and see if he can come back from this horrible season. Now you have all 4 of your better play makers in the game and build depth around them...

This is what is do as well as being Ruud back and find a smaller more coverage oriented MLB in case that skillet is needed.
