    What I'd like to see is our DT's adding some extra weight to plug up those wholes against the rushing attack. I can see Smith and Malone adding the weight easily. And I hope Johnson and whoever can add the needed weight to clog those running gaps by the time the season starts. Hell, they are going to loose 10 lbs or so in our preseason heat.

    I think our front 4 is big enough(too big actually). Mario is easily the biggest RE in the NFL and Weaver is an excellent run stopping DE.

    If anything our DTs need to lose weight, 3-4 lineman are much bigger than 4-3 lineman, we don't have to be that big up front with 4 guys on the line. We do need to get bigger at the LB position however.

    I'm not for adding weight to the tackles either...... I don't want to just stop the run, I want TJ in the backfield, stopping them behind the LOS, and discouraging the thought all together.

    I want teams to understand that they can't run on our D.
