After watching this last game, it has become even more glaringly obvious that the big thing killing this team is (and always has been) the D-line.
I watched in complete frustration as the boys tried the same spin moves and stunts time after time after time. Zero success. Calvillo just stood there and looked completely relaxed and comfortable and made passes with zero concern of being smoked.
Give the DB's credit for the quick tackles and usually limited gains.... but this can't be allowed to continue any longer! Our D-line is the joke of the league. Anthony is simply too small for the job and is suited to a LB spot, not rush end. NML has been the biggest disappointment of all of them. Patrick and Adams have shown nothing of interest despite their size.
I wouldn't hesitate for a second to put any new NFL cut in there to pick up the pace. Our LB's and DB's can only do so much. The team MUST get some heat from the front four or we will never be able to outscore our opposition. Just look at the scores for proof - Montreal scores 38 points, B.C. 40, Edmonton 38, B.C. again 35, Toronto 34, Winnipeg 37 and on and on! Meanwhile we are getting 44, 10, 23, 33, 31 and can only win ONE with those points?
Time for a shakeup. Move in one or two new guys and/or get a D-line coach that can actually come up with some schemes that actually may have a chance of working!
This sad excuse of a line has survived entirely too long!!! :thdn:
