I honestly don't care what defense they run, just get the right damn players for whatever scheme they want to run and a better defensive coordinator.

I think that he would be great there too, but the problem is that for DE are asked to do more athletically than the NT. Also when its passing downs DEs are typically moved to the spot of where 4-3 DTs are on passing downs and rushing the passer. Cofield doesnt have the stamina to be in there every other passing down like Bowen is, per say.

I just don't think Cofield has the ability to be the disruptive NT of a traditional 3-4 like Casey Hampton, Vince Wilfork, BJ Raji or Shaun Rogers.

I agree 100% and for this reason Bruce Allen should be drafting the players, looking for key free agents, and making the trades instead of Mike Shanahan. Allen is the GM. Shanahan is the head coach. The GM should do what GMs do and the head coach should only be focusing on directing the players.
