Top 2003 Defense:
#1 Bucs: Yes they lost Al Singleton & MVP Dexter Jackson, but they added DeWayne Rudd and alread have Smith who had (2) INT's in the S.B. himself. They will still be contenders.
#2 Steelers: They should recover from being bombed on. They always get their sacks and some turnovers. Added threat of Randle El returning some punts and kickoffs for td's.
#3 Ravens: They're back. With Lewis healthy and a better offense they should rebound. OLB in the 3-4 Terrell Suggs will create a lot of pressure and have a Peppers type of impact.
#4 Panthers: speaking of Peppers; the Panthers front four are one of the best units with Ruckers, Peppers and Jenkins. LB's are bad either. Coach Fox really turned around this unti last year and it should continue with the offense getting better.
#5 Dolphins: With the additions of Junior Seau and possibly Sammy Knight and the NFL sack leader Jason Taylor they will be tough again.
#6 Eagles: Lost Kirkland, Gardner, Bishop and Hugh Douglas, they have a lot to recover from. Jim Johnson will keep this unit functioning at a high level.
As someone said the deal isnt signned in stone there is a rumour that GB is also in the hunt for Knights services. If Knight does sign with the Fish then he would help make the Miami secondary even better but this looks like a win now or never move for the Fish. Marion is faceing retirement right in the face and even though none of the reaming three old none of them are spring chickens with Surtain being the youngest at 27, Knight 28 and Madison 29.
Not everone can be Darrell Green and still be effective at 40!!
