There is a lot of talk on the board about us needing a pass rusher. And I agree, we desperately need a pass rusher, but is that our biggest need? No! We need playmakers! Think back to our defense earlier this decade. We had playmakers (Category #1) at all levels. Seymour, Bruschi, McGinest, Law, Harrison, Samuel, Vrabel, etc. And we had guys that played solid and could occasionally chip in with a big play (Category #2), Phifer, Washington, Green, Warren, Colvin, Johnson, etc. So what do we have now. A lot of Category #2 and only one playmaker in training Merriweather. And for all this board's talk of the great Mayo, the fact remains, he makes no BIG PLAYS! He is a complimentary Category #2 player. Pass rushers are great, unless the opposing offense runs the ball, but playmakers don't care whether it is a running or passing play.
