Minor Changes Possible To the Defense
These units all look solid, although I would expect us to add Brace in place of the 11th defensive back.
DT (4) - Wilfork, Haynsworth, Love, Warren
DE/OLB (5) - Carter, Ellis, Ninkovich, Anderson, Cunningham
ILB (4) - Mayo, Spikes, Guyton, Fletcher
LB/ST (2) - White, Tarp
DEFENSIVE BACKS - POSITION PLAYERS
Belichick seems set on the seven position players (the players who actually get the reps)
CB: Bodden, McCourty, Arrington, Dowling
S: Chung, Ihedigbo, Barrett
There have been lots of injuries in this group, causing us to give STer's reps.
DEFENSIVE BACKS - SPECIAL TEAMERS
The question is how many of these folks do we need, given that we already have Slater, White and Tarp as STer's.
We have four of these folks: Molden, Moore, Ventrone, and Brown. I would expect to see this group reduced by two, or even three if we could find a position free safety to add.
