I prefer "missing" tackles, as opposed to "blowing tackles." When you said someone "blows tackles," I think of something that I don't care to think about.
When I say knock out, I mean knock back, as in when they hit the running back, the running back doesnt gain an extra two or three yards before he goes down...I dont care if our MLB knocks people out like taylor, I just want him to be powerful enough to immediately stop forward progress. Marshall can not do that practically ever. Plus Marshall is not powerful enough to fight through the blocks to get to his man.

Re: Positions

I agree with the comments about avoiding major changes, and making minor corrections. I think the idea should be to make as few changes as possible while still achieving our goal: a (much) improved defense. So, I don't think moving players around, from position to position, is a good idea.

My ideal offseason would go like this:
1. Sign a good up-coming CB (i.e.: Clements)
2a. Sign Freeney* (this is more like fantasy)
2b. Draft the top DE or LB prospect (hopefully by trading down)
3. Draft O-line depth (hopefully with picks acquired from trading down)
4. Develop Rocky and Arch

I think we need to figure out how to get our hands on either Gaines Adams(Clemson) or Quinten Moses(Georgia). The easiest way? Keep losing games. That should put us in good position.

like it except don't think we can afford any big signing next season. trade down. . . yes. . . down like tomkat's careers, down like MNF's ratings, down like the drip of melty ice cream left by the locker room door. . . alway down. . .

Jason whitten actually did flatten AA like Wile E coyote.

I agree with 3 and 4 but you are out of you mind wanting to add more over priced free agents. We need Freeney and Clements like we need two holes in our head. Imagine how much money they are going to command. Building through free agency is NOT the answer. See the results of the 2000 season and the 2006 season if you need some clarity on free agent spending.

I agree that BUILDING through free agency is not the answer. Does that mean that you should ignore FA? No. I'm talking about 2 additions -- that's not what I would call BUILDING. Anyways, Freeney and Clements are 2 great defensive players that have proven themselves in the NFL. If you would pass them up, I'd call you crazy -- especially if we had the chance to get Freeney.
