I guess we better start knocking the ball out of the f*cking park on those late round draft picks that have about a 5% chance of being anything more than a special teamer.
I agree 100% that the D is not a problem, it's the O.
And yet we have less cap tied up overall in the D than we do on the O.
The solution (as I see it) is - in 2014 we no longer have Holmes or Sanchez's salary to worry about. That's about $25m, but we have no QB and a hole at WR. So we need to draft like hell over the next two years to find a WR (could take a damned good one at #9 this year) and a QB (either a later pick this year, or a pick in 2014 - or both, if possible, draft picks aren't that costly now).
Sure, it means 2013 we probably aren't competitive, but I think we all knew that anyway. This is about the medium term, and getting Sanchez's and Holmes' salaries off the books will give us plenty space to fix the O. Without having to sacrifice the D to get there.
