It definitely helps the LBs when you have some competent/capable DTs. Helps their health too.I think McCoy/Poe tandem in the middle is going to be pretty strong for us. It wont be as goos as Philly's tandem of Hargrave/Cox but these guys should be a strong upgrade for us over the past few years, and help eliminate the "parting the red sea" run defense we have seen at times in spots. They also both have some pass rush ability, especially McCoy.
Assuming LVE returns healthy, having McCoy/Poe in front of him, Jaylon and Lee should really free up lanes for them to run to the ball carriers/QB.
Had we not made one damn move in free agency, just having MM instead of Garrett and that sack of shit staff he had is a massive improvement.We have been pretty active in FA this year. Unlike past years under Garrett. This gives me a small glimmer of hope that things might actually be different under MM.
And with MM saying to just draft him playmakers and he will make the scheme fit the player we might see something new for the first time in a long time
It feels good going into a season and not having Garrett’s black cloud hanging over the teams head.
I'm not opposed to them keeping the guy, he's a decent player who can do a few different things up front and it sounds like they want to be able to play multiple fronts.. I wouldn't want to keep him (if he does get healthy) at what he is making now though.Or sentimental Jerry likes Crawford and wants him to stick around because of defections and uncertainty on the d line.
