Lovie and his DC's were just highly overrated. The talent on those D's was through the roof, Harris b4 his inj, Alex Brown and tillman in his prime, BU/Briggs in their prime, the Mike's as a Safety, then they got Peppers. All that talent is now to old, and it never got replaced by in FA or the draft. This is EXACTLY what happened to the Bears OL in 04-06. It got inj'd and old and never replaced. The only way Lovie saves this D from falling into the bottom 3rd is if they put the O on the backburner yet again, and Emery drafts/brings in FA's at the DT, DE, 2 S, CB, and 2 lb's, all capable of backingup/starting this year, that's what he's going to have to do this upcoming offseason, as well as bring in a young qb and probably a backup swing OT.
