Lets take a look at the D:
Wilfork - Amazing player, we must keep him.
Warren - Building block of the line
Seymour - Overrated, injury ridden and lazy. He should be cut
Wright - Quality Depth
Greene - Underrated player and a great pass rusher
Vrabel - Needs to take a pay cut or retire
Bru - Love him, but he needs to hang em up
Mayo - Awesome
Gutten - Awesome
Crable - Future Vrabel, but he's faster and more athletic
Alexander - He knows the system and is nice insurance depth
Harrison - God awful in coverage and slow as dirt. Needs to hang em up
Sanders - Played great last year, this year not so much. Good to keep around for depth, but as a whole he sucks.
Meri - Awesome
Wheatley - Wilhite - Both have a future
Hobbs - A legit #2 corner
Oniel - sucks/jag
We are going to have a fast and athletic d in the future. It's obvious that the older lb's, and Seymour being a shell of himself are having a negative impact on the pass rush. Couple that with the fact that we have a lot of rookies out there and viola. I hope Sey, Harrison and Bru are cut. Either that or the retire. I know Sey will want more money when the time comes, so I hope the pats trade him or cut him!
I said much the same thing in a thread the other day and it was deleted.
And I'm a homer to boot!
Yeah, don't know about Seymour. So much of his hit is bonus (already paid) that it may not make sense to cut him.
Everyone else you mentioned should retire or go. We need a new defense. New blood. Preferably someone who can actually rush the passer.
