In the NFL, you can get by with a so-so DT and not really get burned by it. But if you get really good ones, they definitely make an impact.
well i've accepted that polian will never use a 1st rd pick on a DT/OL ever. he tries to build through the draft and it's next player up...but before 3 yrs ago we had friggin DE's playing DT (Raheim Brock anyone?). seriously. lol I hate it sometimes.
Really...all we need is Dom Capers. lol
