    Well, so much has changed and yet here we are, with a 43 defense pretending to be a 34, Clowney pretending to cover someone once a game and all.

    Clowney needs to take JJs spot and let Scarlett/Houston operate as the right DE. Stick a couple hogs in between for run support and at least we can salvage a defensive front.

    Clowney-Reader-Covington-?????
    Cunningham-McKinney-Cole
    Sh!tty secondary.

    At least this will feature JD, some run stuffers and a LB core with speed. I'm so disappointed, as we all are but god damn...what do we have to do to get a front 7 that can actually stay healthy? It's literally only been the case for like 43 total minutes.

    Cole has been mentioned. He has him as the third linebacker

    Any updates on him? He, McKinneyand Cunningham are making a huge impact right now and we absolutely can't afford to lose him.

    Did see Clowney take over JJs spot, but I think he's really hurting, don't see the fear inducing athleticism right now. That crash into McKinney was scary too. They seriously need to work on disguising blitzes or coming up with more straightforward blitz packages. Putting everyone on the line isn't fooling offenses and they really don't have the horses to consistently win one on one.
