The defense had some pretty key injuries. Justin Smith tearing his triceps hurt a lot, but what nobody is talking about was Aldon Smith playing the second half of the season with a shoulder injury. He was on the limited practice report for several week to close out the season. Brooks was fighting through something too. That really hurts because those are our best pass rushers. We need to upgrade the NT position. Our run defense was vulnerable this year to up the gut runs. We should also get a rotation going at DE and OLB. Brooks, Aldon, Justin, and RayMac play too many plays. If we use early round picks on defensive linemen, those players will be more fresh and healthy throughout the season. I'm not as down on our CBs as everyone else is, although I am down on Whitner.
