Bingo...That's something a lot of fans have overlooked when talking about Fletcher and our LBs. They gave him grief about his tackles being downfield...yet LBs aren't going to be able to penetrate the LOS...or even get very close to it...if the DTs aren't doing their jobs

Whats funny about this article is that its something every Bills fan is aware of, and Marv and co did nothing to fix it. Even if D Walker signed, which is not going to happen, we would still need help. The only options Marv and co are left with now is to Sign 1 or 2 of the following 3 DT's.
Corey Simon, (who should become a FA at somepoint)
Tank Johnson and or
D Walker. Im not crazy about any of these options, but its still an upgrade over what we have. Its too bad that this is the position Marv and co have put themselves in by not addressing it sooner. If I have learned anything from paying attention to how Marv works, they wont do either of the 3.
