    Horton is more like a rental for Cleveland this year. Hes going to be a HC next year somewhere and the Eagles probably wanted a guy that committed to the team.

    You've got to be ****ing kidding me.

    Rick Minter sucks. Rick Minter is literally awful. Rick Minter is just awful. I have been forced to watch his absolutely abysmal defense at Kentucky for two years in a row. Rick Minter, is also, a total douchebag.

    Jesus Christ.

    Not that it was really all his fault, but good riddance. We were terrible this year on ST.

    True but we also didn't have good players for it.
    But our FG kicker did look better the last 2 years and our punter looked solid this year. But the return game was horrible.

    I know your a Kentucky fan but how good can a Kentucky defense be with the players they have. Having said thy he'll probably just be a positional coach at best

    Kentucky has actually produced 7 NFL draft picks on the defensive side of the football over the last 5 years (Pryor, Peters, Woodyard, Trevathen, Guy, Lindley, Jarmon). Denver's leading tackler? UK product Wesley Woodyard, for example. Two guys drafted just last year, one of whom, Danny Trevathen (Denver as well) had significant playing time as a rookie (played in their base nickel package, ended the season with 33 tackles and 1 sack). A few of those guys missed at the NFL level, but Corey Peters has been a starting Falcons DT for sometime, and Myron Pryor sees action in NE quite often on passing downs (when healthy). As bad as Kentucky can be at times, they're putting guys into the NFL.

    We've actually had at least one or 2 NFL caliber players on our defense for a handful of years. Last year's defense probably had two-three guys who will play on Sundays (Avery Williamson and Bud Dupree). Despite that, we were beyond terrible. I mean, awful. He ran a defense that was entirely too confusing for anyone to pick up. He has a weird, SS/LB hybrid and a DE/OLB position. His job will likely revolve around the DE/OLB position (as our guy in that slot last year, Bud Dupree, was excellent at that), but I can almost assure you the only reason Minter is here is due to his familiarity with the hybrid style of defense.

    Not that it mean's anything but Mike Trgovac was DL coach at ND while Minter was DC there. I agree that Eagles want to run a hybrid 4-3/3-4 front and Trgovac has history in both defenses, could be a candidate.

    The good thing about 3-4 OLB's is you don't necessarily need a top 10 pick to get one you can get one late in the first or even somewhere in the second cause they are so hard to predict, which next year can come in handy when were picking 32nd

    You know, I think its really funny how all these professional, paid, ex-coaches, ex-players were all preaching last week "defense's dont win championships anymore, strong offense's prevails". And while if you look at the last few Super Bowls they seem correct. But I also love it how 2 of the top 6 defenses in the NFL RIGHT NOW are playing for Lombardi

    Baltimore ranked middle of the road all season defensively and the SF'ers defense didn't do them any favors against ATL. It was their offense that won that game. Just like their offense beat GB.

    Can we please try and find a way to trade for Kaepernick? I've got a huge man crush forming.

    OK Nick, you see that over there? That's what used to be of our playoff chances.

    My name is Mark Sanchez. I am here to screw you over.
