    Jethro Franklin seems like someone to hang your hat on :cowboy1: hope he stays with his boyz awhile overseeing their complete development, then elevated to DC. I think he is missing one more piece to the puzzle- specificly a competitive RDE w/big play ability, the right one would put Okoye & Co. over the top, right now opponents are able to lock down the rookie while Mario has transformed into a beast @ LDE. just imagine a sack machine coming hard from the right side how it would balance the attack :d:

    Yep. Again, two of his sacks against the Tacks came from him playing on the left. There was a discussion in the offseason about whether Mario should play next to Amobi (it was more with the assumption that Mario would be weakside DE and where Amobi would go) or whether they should create havoc from both sides of the line. But the best they've looked was when they were lined up together and stunting.
