The RAM means clean for LB' s.

I may not be the sharpest crayon in the box but I'm one of the most colorful.

Reading that would have scared me last year lol - Hopefully not the case this year.

Yeah, because Schiano has the LBs up at the line of scrimmage filling gaps. First coach in the history of football I heard say that the LB fills a gap so the DL is freed up to make plays. No, I wouldn’t want the guys that run 4.5 and the space to get a full head of steam making the plays either.  Unbelievable. He thought he was so smart that he made our defense look stupid and paralyzed. Worse yet, he was so arrogant that he didn’t change after is was proven not to work.

Oh I totally agree.  I'm so excited to see a quicker defense this year with a simpler scheme.

It certainly feels like this will be Taron's break-out season!  The dude is just nasty.

I hope Tommy T and Vincent pair up in the rotation. Opposing OL will collapse.

Then add Tyreke and Tyler at the ends and you'll have the "Terrible T's." The opposing O linemen will be crapping themselves.

I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.

Taron will be a top 15 pick in the 2021 draft.

I see TV as the heir apparent to the whole that was left in the roster from Dre'Mont Jones. He and BB Landers at DT has me feeling damn good about the interior of the D-Line. Jashon Cornell, and Tommy Togiai should both be a factor in that rotation along with Hamilton.

Just a sick embarrassment of riches at DT right now. 

Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.

There may have been bigger stars on the DL under LJSR, but Taron and company have to be the most balanced unit he's had across the board.

I can't wait to see the Battering Ram and his cohorts tee off on opposing offenses.

It all begins with the defensive tackles.  If one - or both - of them demand extra attention from the opposing O-line (i.e., double-teams, etc.), it frees up our stellar defensive ends and (hopefully, soon-to-be stellar) linebackers.  Can't really double those guys if you're already doubling the DTs now can you?)

I'm really looking forward to seeing our new defensive coaches turn our D around from last season's dismal performance. 

By the way, our supposed inability to recruit elite D tackles just a few years ago sure seems like a distant memory now, doesn't it?

Play sound fundamental D. Make them drive the length of the field and convert multiple third and 8s...if they do that and we can’t outscore them...well so be it.

52 days.  I'm trying to keep my expectations reasonable, but it is getting tougher to do so.  Reading about the talent still on the team all over the field still to make their impact, coupled with the talent that has made an impact already, is exciting.  Throw in current recruiting successes and the possibilities for this season and future seasons get this 'ol fart pretty juiced.

HULK SMASH!!

I forgot how highly ranked Vincent was as a recruit. I wouldn't want to be an opposing OL facing Vincent and Togiai in the middle. Who do you double-team? Pick your poison.

Our defensive line going up against Ed Warriner and Jim Bollman’s olines? This is going to be fun...
