What's really weird is that Pat Sims is a player that I wanted us to draft when he first came out but I don't think we had any picks before he came off other than when we took Darren McFadden.

This is a nice little article. It's good to hear a positive spin, sure it's not a game breaker, but we are getting players that are solid, and won't make tons of mistakes, which is a nice change over boom and bust D of the last few years.

I thought our run defense in 2010 was decent. Granted they were still ranked 29th but still had some 5 games where they held opposition to less than 100 on the ground which hadn't done in a while. There were some where they just collapsed which hurt them, but the signs of life were there. They weren't making no name rushers look like Pro Bowlers like in years past.

I seriously look for our team to be more defense oriented with an offense that can capitalize on opportunities set up by defense.
