We need more talent on the defensive side of the ball, no doubt. But I've seen some Rams fans acting like it would be terrible to add talent on the offensive side. Pretending like the O doesn't need help too would be disastrous, IMO. Plus, our defense could potentially improve without adding any players for three basic reasons:
1. There are a lot of young players on defense, so there is room for improvement that comes simply from experience and better decision making.
2. A simpler, more aggressive scheme would be a better fit for the talent already on the roster. I'm not a fan of overly complex defensive schemes like Marmie's. Neither were the players apparently.
3. A more balanced offense. One of the reasons our defense stunk was because our offense played so little ball control, even when it had a lead.
I'm not suggesting we don't need defensive players -- we absolutely need linemen, a couple of safeties, and linebackers. We especially need to build up depth. But that doesn't mean we should ignore probelms on the other side of the ball too.
That said, I'll freak if we take TE in the first round.
