    Let's be realistic,

    There's some talent to work with on the defensive side of the ball, but it needs to be developed and we need a lot of luck on the injury front. We have zero depth at LB... unless Gilbert continues to improve. Fackrell will likely be cut, I don't think Burks can contribute much of anything this year, and I don't expect much out of Beigel. The DB's are going to be a work in progress - to be sure there will be growing pains.

    Best case scenario is that the defense can gel by mid-season, and the young guys can step up by seasons end and be counted on to perform at a higher than average level. That's asking a lot I think. Give Gute another year to shore things up and I expect a ton in year 2.

    It's more than fair to take a wait and see approach. I certainly understand the excitement with Capers gone but can sure see why your cautious as well. I think there will always be growing pains with any new system being installed. I could see us having a real stinker game early on.
