    Any one want to argue with this???

    ok i looked at a few teams around the league that can stop the run very well and here is why they have the progress they do.

    Its the defensive tackles, period. it doesnt matter if you have good line backers or good D ends, all that matters is the 2 defensive tackles.

    ex: look at the vickings, they do not have good linebackers or defense ends at all but look at their 2 Dtackles (kevin and pat williams) them two guys are beasts and they are the sole reason the vickings only give up 66 rushing yards per game. Now i know the rams have better LB's then the vickings by far and both of our secondaries are not that good so that leads me to this conclusion. Any one want to argue

    Well I'm not about to argue Will51, but I would like a few examples of your research than just the "Vickings". What other teams did you look at?

    WHAT SAY YE?

    ok rammarkable......

    the vickings were by best research because while i could find other teams, some had a stud DE or one stud LB, but you get my point right, we need to sign a high profile Defensive tackle and go from there

    I'll agree that it starts with the defensive tackles, but you've also got some good 3-4 teams that can stop the run, like San Diego, and that's not just the nose tackle.

    Statisticly the defensive tackles whether it be a 3-4 or 4-3 don't get alot of tackles. Their responsibilty is to clog up the middle and free up lanes/gaps for the linebackers to roam and do their jobs. So in my opinion a team that is good against the run needs talent at all 7/8 positons in the box. However, I do agree that it all starts with the DT's.

    Just one mans opinion.:r
