Default DJ Williams is a Pro Bowl Caliber Player

We dumped a truck-load of money on him.

Nothing to do with SoCal. I love that guy. He's a great poster. I think DJ went to his college or something (?) so he's got a fondness for him. Nobody's perfect.

TRUE. For the first half of this season only though. Not last year at Mike, and not at Sam.

Although he did improve every week last season at Mike, and could have been a decent MLB.

You guys are forgetting the first 7 games this year ... DJ was A-L-L O-V-E-R the place ... he was in on every single tackle, had like 3 sacks and broke up a few passes too.


How soon we forget.....

I remember DJ finally showing up for a few games. I didn't forget. He's a WLB, so he's always going to have decent tackle numbers.

The question was with regards to him being a Pro Bowl player. I've never thought he was, and didn't think so this year, either.

I think he's a nice athlete with marginal football instincts. He's not nasty, and rarely makes big plays.

Yes, he has spells where he looks like a professional football player.

I believe DJ would be among the to 5 WLBs in the league if we had a functioning defensive line.

No leadership = No Pro Bowl; trust me....Urlacher and Lewis are Icons b/c of their leadership just as much as their play.

Urlacher and Lewis are MLBs. The quarterback of the defense. You would expect them to be outspoken leaders. You don't hear about your WLBs being the outspoken team leaders very often.

Our line is awful... no doubt about that. Ekuban had a sack as he'll do now and again. (Thankfully) But, no one else came close to the QB all night.

Engleberger is akin to putting a sack of potatoes out there. I think even the most foggy-headed among us sees that now.

Moss was freakin' inactive and Dumervil was a real disappointment this year.
He's really wasting away with us. The kid would have probably been better suited in a 3-4 somewhere.

That said, Woodyard managed to look pretty dominant right out of the gate. DJ went AWOL in two crucial games, which is nothing unusual.

No, but close. No pro bowler can operate without his system... maybe a lead rush from the DE maybe help from the mlb.

As far as I know, just about everybody has always known that Engleberger is just a role player out there. At least I've never heard anybody say differently.

Woodyard looks pretty damn good. Even dominant at times. But he has a lot of the same problems that DJ has had all season - save that Woodyard has remained healthy. Either guy would benefit tremendously from a better defensive line.

I'm glad that I don't have to make the decision between the two. It's nice to have at least one position stacked with talent.

We'll all get to see some real defenses in action coming up soon.

Catch the Ravens or Steelers games, if you can. Watch the pockets collapse on opposing QBs and check out the hits these guys lay on opposing teams.

I just hate that we are such a pansy-ass D and have been for so long.
