he's going to hold out for more money and help get capers fired. My mistake he did that already.

correct me if im wrong but since when was indy known as a "scary" defensive team? and i assume he runs the tampa two defense... that doesnt really fit our personel... in that defense the corner backs (not physical)are primary run defenders while the linebackers play zone coverage (will probably get burned)... plus for that system to work u need to get pressure with your 4 down linemen and that will be very difficult without JP next year... i was hoping for an assitant from the eagles who will send blitzes and play man coverage not rely on the line (which sucks now). I hope that i am wrong though...

Can't argue with bringing a different style, who has led a defense to a Super Bowl victory. This is a great move!

I so called the Meeks signing 8)

Meeks? Seriously. I think I'd rather have Kevin Greene run the defense. At least he can stop someone.

I hope no player attacks me like the time I attacked my coach.

@Matt- I understand where you are coming from..the Indy defense was soft and people are not scared to run on it..We shalll see how Meeks adjusts to the personnel here..What he brings to the table though is a sound defensive mind..I dont care if he does not run blitzes...its not the be-all and end-all of defenses..what matters is we need to get enough pressure from the front four but cover well in the secondary..Also, remember his def won the SB..thats all I want..i dont want the blitzes any more than that..

Kevin Greene? What, is he going to teach them how to wax their chests and dive off the top turnbuckle? Good luck GB!
