    Who are the dependable non-rookie backups on defense? Consider the 12 man defense (including the nickel back).

    There is Fletcher and there is ?????

    None, but when we had veteran backups in 2009, 2010, and 2011 we had some of the worst defenses in the NFL.

    There is nothing wrong in my opinion with having young players who are willing to leave it all on the field, what they lack in experience can be made with in desire.

    You might check out the winning defenses of earlier in the decade and see the age of the defense.

    With regard to desire replacing experience, the issue is production not desire.

    Its not really my desire buddy, its Belichick's so either we can get on board or belabor it. The only constant in life is change MG.
