Default McBean more important than we thought?

If this is a duplicate then please feel free to delete.

Correct me if I'm wrong but Baltimore's air attack beat us right,,, not the run?

Ryan Mcbean has missed the last two games, and in those two games there has been a noticeable change in our ability to stop the run.

Personally I don't know if I believe this, but it definitely makes me think he's more important than I thought?

Your impressions please...

McBean has been a beast... I'm not sure who thought we wouldn't miss him.

Yeah I wasn't saying anyone claimed that, I'm just throwing it out there that maybe he is more crucial to our defense than at least I thought.

Well this is where our depth, or lack thereof, hurts us. McBean is crucial

Is he supposed to be back on Sunday? I know it's damn near impossible to know with McD. He's been in limited practices, I guess that's a good sign?

Seems like 2 + 2 = 4.

Is this the trouble with the interior pass rush also?

You have to tell me because I've been distracted the last couple weeks.

What McBean does better then Smith is hold the POA and keep the runs inside. Smith and Peterson seem to sucked inside and loss spacing.

You can never have enough depth on the dline. I have heard that so many times over the years I tuned it out. But it is defintelt a football truism.

I was just thinking that today, if there's one thing I didn't expect to say this season it's:

Peterson also gets sealed alot in the run game. They get him going sideways and he can't get off the block.

McBean seemed to get of blocks better and not over persue.

A dominant NT will be the absolute #1 offseason need via FA or draft.

I know Marcus Thomas has been in the doghouse but I liked what I saw of him in the ****ty 3-4 scheme of Slowik's.

He has the beef and the muscle though maybe not the ability to play the end in this defense. Still I wonder if trying him out as a 3-4 end might not shore up some of the interior holes.

At this point I would consider activating Baker and sliding Fields to DE on first and second downs and short yardage situations. We need to adjust something along the line while McBean is out.

I agree, NT will be one of our main if not the MAIN pick up this offseason. That and another young CB.

Thomas is the vet and is active on game days, Baker is not. my bet would be thomas would start at nose before baker does.

This last few weeks has been frustrating. Alot of people were down on Mcbean but not me. Alot of our success has been due to our line. Mcbean is going to be missed.

Next year bring on Cody. I like Fields but with Fields Cody and Peterson this defense could be extremely good.

The holes keep on finding there way back. The interior line looked better with Hoch in

QB, DE, NT, CB, ILB whats going to be the pick this year.

I don't think QB will be a pick, or it will be a late one. I think Orton is it for a couple of years and will get an extension if anything. However I agree with your other picks, but I think DE and NT will be flip flopped depending on what position has better talent at our pick.

Yea, playing without McBean and Harris definitely hurt us. Washington was missing guys, so it's not as if the fight wasn't fair... but those are two key guys in our trenches.

We need them back, and fast.

Nah, the fight wasnt fair, we had a limp wristed lefty in there throwing punches. Sorry, I live in DC and needed a good shot at Simms. It was a walk of shame leaving Fedex on Sunday.

I wouldn't be suprised if we see at least one more sigining on the defensive front for depth if we are gonna make a serious run at the West Title
