Do you really think that or are you trying to convince yourself losing Doom is ok?
I'm not saying Doom wasn't a good player. I think the defense can improve due to several factors.
* JDR being here 2 consecutive years
* DRC I think is an upgrade over Porter, and we can move Harris back to Nickel
* I like our starting DT's
* I think Wolfe improves and that will help
* I think Miller is a once in a generation player and he'll be fabulous again.
Elway tried to sign Doom. You can call it twice if you want, that's just circumstance. Elway liked Doom at 6M but agreed to 8M. He obviously felt Doom could help the team but didn't feel he was so important that he could not lose him no matter what. So there you have it.
