Default Connor Barwin.

I tell ya who i think is having one hell of a bounce back season is Connor Barwin, he has made some good plays all season long, he looks just as fast as he did his first year and is good against the pass and the run. I am liking him more and more opposite of Mario. remember he had that sack and forced fumble before it was negated by penalties.

The defensive line is stacked!!! Mario, Antonio, JJ, and Barwin. With Cushing and Demeco in the middle, the future is bright.

Come on now-Mario and Barwin are OLBs not Linemen (wink, wink) didn't you get the memo.

Point taken and signed off on.

Giving up 105+ yds a game rushing says this DL is NOT stacked. They are good at getting after the QB but the run D will be exposed big time next week. Da Raidahs are for real and running like crazy.

i think its a mentality too, we were so bad against the pass last season i feel that they are trying to make sure they dont give up big plays in the passing game and seem less focused on the run.

I'm sorry but the line is stacked when you can get continous pressure against the QB. I will happily give up the 100 yrds a game rushing if we can get in the QB's face over and over.

Don't care if they are giving up 200+ yards next week, as long as the scoreboard has 0's on it, good enough for me....

You did not clarify but there are only two big NT available of any quality. Alemeda Ta'amu but he has yet to stand out this season ( I did not see him if played Saturday) http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings...2012&genpos=DT

and my guy Dontari Poe Memphis who should be available in 3rd round.
http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings...2013&genpos=DT

Unfortunately no WR of starting quality will be at out spot in first my mock partners & I are watching a couple that may be available in 2nd. Whomever we select must start.

Why not both a rushing line and a run stopping one?

Well duh.. That would be ideal but I am talking about what we have right now. Last year we were top 10 in rush defense and 32nd against the pass. And where did that get us? One of the worst defense in NFL history.

Barwin/Smith/Watt/Williams. That's a hellava front 4 when the Texans are in the nickel. This is what we've hoped for for soooo long.

We haven't even played a good rushing offense yet. The next few weeks we will and judging by the 1st four games, it could get ugly.
