Is it time for a defensive rebuild?

Talk about being overly dramatic. Who thought that this team had the foundation for a dominant defense in 2010? Anyone? Bueller?

What really tied that defense together was acquiring a dominant edge rusher and adding better defensive playcalling. They didn't need to start from scratch, just add at the right positions.

I think with Buckner, Foster, Warner, Day, Thomas, Colbert, Tartt...etc, there is a nice collection of young talent but you need the outside pass rush element if you want to run what is largely a vanilla defensive scheme and have people be successful. More depth at CB and S overall would be welcome.

I agree 100%
I don't know why we try to be like Seattle's defense. The difference between them and us is they had great players and have garbage.

Buckner doesn't do anything. We drafted him to be this wrecking ball regardless who he has on the line. After week 2 he has done absolutely nothing. We have two other first round picks on the line we drafted how much help does Buckner need?

We done nothing to address any of the holes we had on defense for two years. Lynch is doing his best baalke impersonation. Jimmy ward armstead and Solomon were whiffs. Akhello is just ok. Tartt is injured too much and Colbert is trash. The only thing we got going for us is foster and warner. Dj reed needs to get some playing time at corner.

We need to get that too 3 pick and trade it down multiple times to get those playmakers we desperately need and stop drafting depth and potential.

Just because he's not getting a sack every game mean he's doing nothing.

So what is he doing exactly? Cause he's not pass rushing or run stopping. He's disappearing.
