Yea we may be "old" on D, but that was not the reason they were bad last year, many of them were playing out of position b/c the coach was bad (secondary guys), we were missing Kelly, Sim was hurt, White was ineffective, and so was Booger.
I'm high on Ruud as well, he's had all the right teachers to do well (Monte, Q, Barry). It's all up to him now.
I don't know about out of position, but a lot of guys got PT when they shouldn't have. Namely Jenkins and Haye, even though Haye didn't do so badly. The DBs and DLs coaches stunk though. I don't know who I'm more excited about having this season, Coyer or Morris.
As far as Sim's health, it will show soon enough if he's ready to go or not. I am getting worried that he's all in these talks with the Giants, that a lot of people think has to do with leverage in the Strahan situation, and not much action elsewhere. I was bracing for all the backlash when he would sign a decent sized contract with a team days after leaving Tampa. So far, he's not even close to signing with a team.
