    Offense has nothing to do with it. Pees has always run a conservative defense. It is a war of attrition defense. Everyone takes care of their responsibility and make the offense have to nickel and dime their way down the field. There is little to no change from week to week on the scheme or how they attack the offense. Aggressive vs conservative nature has nothing to do with whether or not the Ravens have the lead. It actually gets worse in the games where they do have the lead. They go even more conservative. They don't want to give up the big play. It is basically why Jefferson and Weddle have not done that well this year. They have been trying to be aggressive to make things happen and it has exposed the defense to some big plays. Pees and Harbaugh are 1000% the issue. If they brought in an aggressive creative DC this defense would excel against all teams not just the bad ones.

    Not on this team, why waste another D talent.
    Running up posts since Oct '17 with meaningless comments because, well, what else is there to do with this team

    Why are we drafting more pass rushers when we don't even know what we have in Bowser, Tim Williams, or hell even Judon/Correa at their natural position.

    Regardless, until Pees is gone, I don't want another draft pick or FA dollar spent on the defense.

    I agree that an elite pass rusher is a need. Is it our greatest need? IMO, no.

    That said, I'd be okay with taking a pass rusher in Rd1 in April IF that's the BPA at our slot. I'd also consider moving up for an offensive skill player of impact. Bottom line, they need to get some fresh talent on offense, be it through FA or the draft.

    At this time of year I just try to look at where the top level depth is. I see it at QB, DT, and probably G. There are a lot players at DE but few that really stand out in my mind.

    DR, I think you've ...





    What reason to draft pass rush early when we've already got some talents (at least in college)
    that haven't been tapped into (?) New aggressive DC can perhaps bring the heat that (cold) Pees (soup) has not... Bc

    Hey, i never said we don't need a new DC. But we also need an elite pass rusher to get back to the SB IMO

    So now we're going into year 6 "rebuilding" the defense. I've seen Bill Parcells rebuild an entire team, FO on down in 1/3 the time. WTF is going on?

    Says who? There were a couple teams over the last 10 that had a guy like that, but most didn't. Maybe you are saying if we have the same defensive system we need one? Cause in general teams haven't had them.
    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    The Patriots got away with it because they had Tom Brady. Seahawks, Broncos, Giants, Packers, Steelers all had elite pass rushers at the time of their SB wins.

    I know it is ironic that we did not actuallly have any elite pass rushers, mainly because of the way our offense and infact defense (until the 2nd half of the SB) performed down the stretch. But recent history would show that SB champs more times than not have had elite pass rushers. Teams who do not have had QBs playing at a ridiculous level, which we are a million miles away from atm clearly.

    I think Judon and Bowser will be good enough as they grow.

    I want an elite pass rusher among the interior DL.

    Hypothetically, with such a deep RB class, I'd leave RB1 through RB3 on the board, if I knew I could could get a guy who could land on this list of top interior pass rushers (based on PRP, pass rush productivity, or pressures per snap (with sacks added in and weighed the heaviest)):




    Our best guy is Pierce, ranked #48.
    Not even close to getting the job done.

    Off the top of my head, about 66-75% of these guys were acquired outside of Round 1.
