I'm not underestimating Bennett, I'm saying he's not schemed to start for the Hawks, and certainly not at DE. Red Bryant is our strongside DE, and the other end is a Leo end. I would probably guess the Hawks lineup starting W1 as Bryant-Mebane-Williams-Avril. Williams might be replaced by McDaniel if he's not ready, Avril would go out for Irvin and Clemons when they're back. You talk a lot about a team that you really don't know anything about. Yeah, because we haven't shown an ability to maximize the usage of rushers like him. Raheem friggin Brock got 9 sacks playing parttime on this D, I'm p sure Avril will do fine. Yes, it might. But you might want to wait to see them actually do it until declaring their ability to shut down any receiving group in the NFL. The Bucs should be massively improved but should be and are in the NFL are far apart. ...you do realize we only play the Niners twice a year (or thrice), right? We did play the Cowboys, Packers, Patriots, Lions and Falcons last year as well. Not that we did equally great against all of em, but your logic makes no sense, this defense has been plenty tested. Also Boldin only just got back to this division this offseason Calvin Johnson had all of 3 catches for 46 yards against us. Aaron Rodgers threw for 0 TDs and the Packers scored only 12 points on this D. But sure, it's a paper tiger. Broncos, 49ers and Seahawks are the all-around Superbowl favorites. Not that being the off-season SB favorite gets you anywhere.
