The defense not being to stop the run played a HUGE role in our last three playoff losses. Remember that.

We had rushers but we let teams impose their will far too often in those big games. The pass rush didn’t even matter.

Okafor was really good a few years ago before he got hurt. Seems like he has never been the same since. Decent signing.

Exactly. Saints front seven was no joke last season. Shut running games down completely. Just the type of guy we need.

So far we lost 3 guys which freed up $40m in cap.

We've added 4 players on D for about $25m. Think when all is said and done we will have gotten at least 6 players on defense for the price of 3. Not bad.

They did double Hill with a safety over top, but Jonathan Jones was the guy assigned to Hill because he is NE's fastest defender. And he was a backup. His 41 snaps that game were the most he played since week 5.

Is he better than Bailey?

Yeah... when you hope a guy gets hurt so you can "win" a message board argument you should really evaluate your life and your priorities.

It's crazy how they bash Ford when almost EVERY free agent we've signed has recently had some major injury and has missed time.

I'm excited about this. Saints had a better defense than the Chiefs.



Then again 31 other teams had a better defense than the Chiefs..

He is a good defensive lineman...he is especially strong against the run.

This defense is not purely reliant on winning one on ones like Sutton’s. They’re going to bring pressure in all sorts of different ways. And maybe stop the ****ing run, another factor that cost them in the AFCCG.
His sack total that year was inflated by a couple crazy games. It was a glimpse of hope.

Yes...no question about that in my mind.

How many of them cost as much as Ford?

Oh that's right, zero.
