I don't ever worry too much about losing players on defense, especially in the front 7. Seems like theres always talent just waiting to step up and take over. The losses in the secondary scare me a lot, already an area where the defense was thin.
Yeah the DB situation is up in the air. Also, Rod Smith is going to get a lot of PT at RB.
Still, like keylime said, we are going to be screwed because there will likely be very little passing threat. Load the box and challenge them to throw.
Old school Tressel ball gives me heartburn.
