IN: Anderson, Carter, Ellis STAYING: Ninkovich and Cunningham OUT: Banta-Cain, Deaderick, Brace Obviously, we have some work in progress here. If there is improvement, the entire defense will improve. ============================== BOTTOM LINE: HERE LIES THE PROBLEM ============================== We've been looking for help here for years. Ninkovich has done well. Cunningham has been sort of lost in action. We'll see how the new group does. It is clear that Belichick has certainly given the position some help.
