    True dat. I like your idea of Big Toe back at NT. With Paea, Woot, and Pep, that's at least decent against the run and might be able to generate some QB pressure with the help if selective blitzes. As it stands now, even marginal RBs are tearing it up against us on the ground. We could at least tighten that up by getting Woot back in position and Shea off the field for anything but sure passing downs. He was HORRIBLE last night in run defense.

    I too would like to see them bring Big Toe back. But I wonder if there is some "bad blood" over him not accepting a reduced contract?

    There's no way Bostic isn't an upgrade against the run, where dj feel pitifully short.

    Seeing how bad the front four is at creating pressure, I need to see LBs blitzing Damn near every play.

    But, Bostic isn't necessarily an improvement on pass defense, either. I know DJ wasn't in on Nickle downs, but Bostic was playing both last night, and he wasn't very good at it.

    As others have said, Toe is still available. Not a bad stop gap until Paea gets healthy. And Okoye is still available too if he still has anything left. I remember two years ago he got four sacks for us or something like that.

    No, but given what we've seen from Bostic, this isn't going to be an upgrade of the position, anytime soon. I'm not too worried, because, like Jimmors said, "what better time than now?"
