Humber is a player who could sneak into the starting lineup and have an impact in Vilma's inside linebacker spot.
He's been impressive so far in the preseason. Let's hope he holds up in the regular season.
I'm not to worried about the losses of Vilma and Smith. Both veteran injured guys who were on the way out anyway. Sad to see them go, especially to a preseason injury, but sometimes there's a silver lining. We need young talent on the Defense. Now is the time to shine.
These problems are typical of a DC on his first year. Players learning the system, old players busting down, etc...
Unfortunately we've had to deal with it 2 years in a row.
I'm going to hold my prediction that this defense is between 20-25 in the league and that puts us in the playoffs. Where anything can happen.
