Default Re: Was Steve McLendon That Bad? And What About Louis Nix?

McClendon gets blamed for the digression in our run defense, but I do agree that it was a combination of factors.

Losing Foote, was I think the final blow to our run defense. You can replace one or two starters in an offseason and not expect much dropoff. But to repalce Casey Hampton, and unexpectedly Larry Foote (with a rookie), and James Harrison-- this was entirely predictable.

I think Vince Williams will be better this next year, and Jarvis should be much better.

Big Steve has always been a bright spot on this team, but agree with other posters that he is just playing out of position.
