We lost Sanchez, Hector, Senat, and Mike Love up front but for some reason people thought we weren't going to skip a beat on defense. That's a ton of experience, leadership, and production to replace. The young guys on the DL have shown flashes but they aren't playing consistent solid football yet. I think we will be much better at the end of the season than we are now as the guys get used to being the man at their spots rather than just being rotational guys like they were last year. As for LB, I'm not 100% sold on Sawtelle and both him and McGee have trouble getting off of blocks. We really need the DL to be consistently disruptive to help the LBs out because they struggle when they have to take on blocks and aren't just allowed to run around. We have a string of very winnable games coming up so hopefully we can everyone on the same page before we get into the meat of our schedule.
