Wilfork might have been nice, but he has been repeatedly mentioned as a weakness for the Pats so far in trying to replace Ted Washington. Like Vinny has said, DL guys take a while to get up to speed as well. The guy it would have been nice to get was Grady Jackson when he was waived by the Saints last year. He made a huge difference for Green Bay last year and now is out injured and look where their run D is.

In terms of total defense, which is the big defensive stat, we are ranked 26th. We are giving up 368.2 yards a game.

well.. put it this way... we were 16th LAST WEEK before going up against the best offense in the league.... and I wouldnt say that our performance against the Vikes was a disappointing one.

Personal opinion, Walker and Payne are not playing very well, we are in desperate need of a Safety, and Demarcus Faggins is getting beat regularly on third down. I was really pulling for Faggins but I have watched him often this year and he is giving a large cushion and still getting beat in third and long situations.

I think we need taller and faster corners to keep up and jump with taller receivers. And maybe need to get rid of the 3-4 defense.

You're not going to find many CB's coming out faster than Robinson. As for size, look at the top rated CB's to come out the last few years--Newman, Hall, Robinson, Jammer, Buchanon--Jammer is the tallest at 6'. WR's have a huge advantage in that they know where they are going. DB's have to react to what the WR's do, and with an emphasis on no contact, they can't do it by bump control anymore. One of the best assets for a CB is short distance closing speed. It seems that it is much rarer for the taller players to have the reactions and closing speed to be great cover CB's. There are a couple of 6' 1" guys coming out next year.

We need fast, short CBs with really super-duper thick bottoms on their shoes. Athletic shoe clogs.
