Not with Frazier.  How many times did they blitz last year?  I bet you could count them on one hand.

 

time for a new DC

Our pass rush was weak last year. The fact that we lost 10 games was the #1 reason why we gave up so few yards through the air. We need more than 1 fix to maintain that level of play and boost the picks and throw-away incompletions. We do tackle well in the secondary, so that piece is still in place. Our LB's cover pretty well too. If we get close to 50 sacks and play well vs the run, the D could win us a few more games. I'd like to see us lead the NFL in takeaways again.

 

We need Murphy to be 100% and for Oliver to be as good as advertised to get 40+ sacks.

I think Murphy is a nice player, but I have a hard time fully trusting Lorax in terms of his evaluation of other players. He seems like such a nice guy that he may be inclined to praise a teammate under fire from the media. Pure speculation and I could be WAY off, but I take it with a grain of salt.

 

That being said, I think we'd all like to see what a HEALTHY Murphy can do.

Is that a joke? Frazier is one of the top DC's in the NFL and a former HC. I seriously doubt you'd find someone better and that move would really make our staff look incompetent. Hoprfully Frazier will be here a long time.

Sometimes I wonder. 

 

RDE- Hughes

DT- Oliver

DT- Lorax

LDE- Murphy

That tandem (absent Oliver plus Kyle) compiled a sack total near the bottom of the league. Alot of that can be contributed to the fact that we were getting blown out so often. Your obviously gonna have less chances when the opponent is playing keep away. Nevertheless, I believe DE is a huge need going forward. 1A/1B with WR.

Barbarian is a joker sometimes.  He played a joke advocating replacing QB with Arizona's John Skelton trading our stating DE for him.

Fact is we know Murphy was hurt and seems reasonable he is healthy now.  Last year in 10 starts he had 4 sacks so I think there is a chance he could have a good year.  And lets hope so!!!!  

 

In about 8 days we will have a little clearer picture when he lines up against the Colts.
