Default Defensive line, wtf?

So WTF is with not fixing the defensive line? This team hasn't had a bigger hole to fill for like 6 years running.

We've wasted the career of one of the best corners to ever play the game because we refuse to put anyone in front of him.

Our defenses have been pathetic mush for the better part of a decade because we have used nothing but have-been and have-never scrubs as the foundation.

How could we not draft a single DT in a DT heavy draft, and then sit by as all the quality defensive linemen in free agency sign elsewhere? How can you start to build anything if you don't ever start freaking building it??

WANTED: Two giant, mean, fat ****s to crush running lanes, kill quarterbacks, and generally build the defense around.

Relax, we'll sign people when the lockout ends I'm sure.

I'm glad someone brought this up, we've all been stewing on the idea but no one wanted to say anything.

One thing that I was shocked to see...was Vickerson.

I can see why we resigned him, he played well for us last season and shows potential.

But, did anyone see his interview right before camp started? The guy looks like he should be playing basketball or swimming. Absolutely no shoulders whatsoever. He's lost tons of weight. He's going to get blown up...in my opinion. He looks more like a light DE then a run stuffing DT.

At this point is seems like the best case is that we sign our own scrubs, and maybe add 1-2 veterns who will work in a rotation. Basically, the same non-fix we've done the past few years. I'm sure how we'll hear all about 'the new scheme' soon, and how excited the guys will be to 'mix it up'. Puke...
