    Man, I can't believe I missed that.

    It certainly would be funny if both he and Greene prove capable with an actual DL in front of them along with Shea.

    I'd be overjoyed because so far Greene looks like a mistake by the lake. I can give Bostic some benefit of the doubt and I still think McClellin can thrive either at MLB or SLB but if Greene is the guy they expect to replace Briggs at WLB and therefore absolutely must be a top notch tackler then they should rethink that plan and get Bostic ready for that job.

    I was high on Greene not only b/c he could tackle but could strip the ball as well. Despite a horrid D-line he should at least shown decent fundamentals. We can blame the D-line, coaching, scheme change, and being a rook but there should at LEAST be some reflexive movements like tackling that he should shown signs of. I think Bostic and McC improve but Greene and CornWash already have a foot in the door on the way out.

    I agree. I think he needs to get stronger to tackle like he did in college.

    Both are gonna have to ramp it up mightily if they expect to stick. That defense got a whole lot more competitive on paper during the offseason. I'd like to see them both stick because we need young talent like that who were taken later in the draft to step up. Those are the guys who can become the difference makers in that draft.
