How about Franklin? He is playing as good as anyone on the line right now. I bet there are a lot of guys that were critical of his play last year that have changed their tune this year.
He was playing better towards the end of last season as well. Do we really need another NT? I think Franklin has stepped up.
Every x nfl player/commentartor (Eric Davis & Woodson) to name a few have said Franklin is play as well as ANY elite 3-4 NT in the game right now. Actually when reviewing the game on the NFL network Baldinger mentioned Franklin and basically said he is just swallowing up double teams and has become an unmoveable mass (pharaphrase).
To me, all of our D line has played well, but Franklin and R.Mac have been lights out. Of course Justin Smith goes without saying, but he is making way more cheddar.
