    If someone suggested you were don't let them fool you. It is an interesting idea. Jackson, Lewis, and Kennedy off the nose. Little and 5-0 on the ends. Now you really need 2 MLBs. Ones who can cover and punish. Of course Little is going to have to drop back more often. But if the current scheme is not working, why not? Over the long haul I'm not sure, but as a quick fix it's worth considering.

    There definitely needs to be better cap balance. In Miami, they've had the opposite problem - all the money going to defense and mostly bargain-basement shopping on offense.

    But there are some players on the offense who should be "untouchable." I'd say that list would include Bulger, Holt, Jackson and Pace. Faulk and Bruce are players who are getting up there in years, and might be candidates for contract restructuring (though I probably wouldn't push the issue with Bruce).

    I think the Rams defense will need some veteran leader brought in. You can't expect a rookie to come in next year and take charge. The leaders right now are Aeneas and Toyoka - both of whom are near the end of their careers. I'd like to see a LB (preferably a MLB) brought in through free agency.
