We just need guys who will break tackles, strip the football, and lead the charge when the chips are down. Maybe those guys are on the team right now? I think Mason Monheim could be a guy like that on D along with Brown (I would call him a playmaker in 2011 but he seemed to lose his way in 2012 edit: he was also injured).
I hear ya and agree. Players like Mendenhall, Benn, Liuget who have that extra gear that cant be taught.

This recruiting class seems a little short on those type of difference makers. Bailey looks to be one though
