first i think the pack will add a running back so one of these guys is probably going to be cut and PS. but i think with picket being what 33-34? and jolly coming back after a 3 year stint away from the game, that a rotation may be needed.
I dont have a problem with 8 because we obviously have some specialists, being able to keep guys fresh will be huge. big test @ SF, but i think an improved dline and front 7 as a whole combined with our cbs could make us a pretty damn good defense. im interested to see what the depth chart looks like, and how they use thier suddenly very deep dline.
oh and what do we think about mike neal how much OLB do you think he will play? i dont think it'll happen a whooe lot but who knows.
