Hope will play well.
Porter,Farrior,Foote,and Haggans-now there is a LB fearsome-foursome.
Smith,Hampton (the best NT in the NFL),and Kimo on the DL.
Yeah...this is a defense to fear.We're gonna tear it up on defense!
It's not our D line or LB's that worry me. We got torched a few times against the Pats and that is something that has haunted us for a few years now. I like Townsend and Willie (he's getting old) and Troy. What we need is a veteran who can play well and help teach the younger guys for a year. Like Law if he is healthy and doesn't want a fortune.
We haven't had a really good core in the secondary since we had Woodson, Lake, Perry and Willie. The group we have now is starting to look good though.
