Freddy's Letters: Our Kingdom for a Nose Tackle

Folks, as you may have noticed sometime between Daniel Thomas carries on Sunday, our up the gut run defense is terrible. More to the point, we have a problem where even despite never playing in a 3-4 before, Shaun Cody is given the majority of the playing time there for ... some reason. I would prefer the team sign an actual nose tackle (heck, get Damione Lewis back, how much worse could he be? Pat Williams is a free agent!) to help plug the middle, but even a big playing time increase for Earl Mitchell would make more sense than what we are currently doing.

You've heard many sides on the great Shaun Cody debate, most of which are MDC preaching to the converted and Shaun Cody's relatives sticking up for him, which I find honorable even if it probably will never be effective.

But who hasn't weighed in on this issue yet? Freddy. So lets do that behind the jump.
