Dallas defense leaves a lot to be desired (understatement).
With Lee, our run defense is adequate, without Lee it is terrible!
Sims is not an answer at linebacker, Wilber might be, but Carter might not be.
Ware is not all the way back, he's getting older, but he is still pretty darn good. but he needs some one to rotate with him that is at least as good as he is now.
Hatcher, who may or may not be here next year needs help in the middle. The D-line has no anchor.
D-line of retreads are just that, retreads, and there are pieces of rubber all over Soldier Field.
Off-season priority, get Crawford, Spencer, and Bass healthy and draft some inside guys.
Church can't do it by himself, Wilcox looks lost and coaches seem to have lost confidence in him, and Heath is another "almost Anthony" type player at the moment.
So how many shutdown corners are available in the draft this year? Carr can be on small receivers as can Scandrick, but Webb has a ways to go and Claiborne can't defend anybody if he is not suited up.
Is there a team in the NFL that has not had injuries at key positions this year? The NFL needs to examine why so many muscle injuries are sidelining players for extended periods of time. Is it the approaches to conditioning? The new limitations on training camp and off-season workouts? Is it the fields? Or have today's athletes exceeded the anatomical and physiological limits for size, strength, and speed? Do teams need larger rosters to guarantee numbers of quality backups?
Regarding the Offense -- I was more impressed with Clutts than any free agent or drafted fullback we have had in years.
Priorities: Defensive Backs!!!!, D-Line, LB depth, OL depth.
