I'll say this - the defense didn't get old overnight or that much slower since last season. BUT - I do feel it is time to get some young blood injected into the line. Cripe - even if we were sitting at 2-0 I'd be wanting to see Hood more , if not 60 to 70 percent of the time just because of his performance last year.
The D can't rest on its prior achievements - just hoping pride doesn't get in the way of progress. We need to start seeing some other guys step up.
That said - very excited at the possibilities again this season.
Here's to hoping Gilbert continues to improve - that can shape up to be some nice chemistry.
