I know it’s just game 1, but I’d blow up this D next year if this season ends up like last years performance.
Lawrence, Smith, LVE at a minimum would need to go.
Draft or go FA and grab a DE and revamp the LBs...find a young dynamic NT who can wreak havoc. Not sure what the cap ramifications would be but this is just a merry go round right now.

Something that seems to have flown under the radar SINCE the game ended is, criminy, Jaylon Smith.

We need more out of that guy.
Nike swoosh not doing it for you?

But he’s fast and has videos of himself working out on social media and everything

You are probably right. The LB corps just disintegrated before our eyes. That small window in 2018 was IT, really .

Lawrence is clearly overpaid. No playmakers in the front seven besides the two mercs Aldon Smith and Everson Griffen.

Blow up the front seven and no one would notice.

Yeah it's sad when in 2018 they looked like the best LBer duo in the NFL and were very young. Fast forward to 2020 and it looks like trash. I'm hoping Bernard gets a chance and looks as good as the reports were.

Looks like Bernard will get called up but they will just play Thomas.

Fix the NT, and watch the LBer situation improve dramatically.

They were exposed though, to quick-hitting plays by physical backs. They can't change direction or deliver hits head on without breaking their necks or collarbones.

NT's can't help there if they are getting wham blocked sideways, LBs have to fill those gaps.

I am hoping our pathetic lack of physicality was caused by the COVID rust.

A NT who doesn't get wham blocked would be nice.

WTF was Poe most of the day?
