Doom is a good situational pass rusher, but a liability in run support and a guy who good tackles simply envelop with their size and footwork.
Adams is an average NFL starter (being generous), Moore is has flashed some potential as of late, but hardly a quality starter (although he is getting better) and nobody on our D-line is any better than a rotational player.
It's not a coaching issue, or a gelling issue, or a motivational issue, it's a talent issue.
I hope Brooking is over his Concussion and can play this week I doubt Mays would have played if Brooking was healthy.
Would rather have an old slow dude out there than a young dumb one who can't cover and is just as slow.
