Geting Melvin Ingram and Jerry Attaochu back on the field at the same time is a breath of fresh air. That air was starting to stink of  mothballs and Ben Gay with Dwight Freeney and Jarret Johnson as the guys trying to get to the quarterback. Freeney isn’t the Hall of Fame player anymore. He needs some help from his teammates. He needs other people to step up to take some of the attention away from him. He still can beat some of the guys in the league, but when the other team has a tight end over him getting a little chip and a running back there to also get a little chip, then what is an old man supposed to do?

All the attention can’t stay on Dwight with Melvin and Jerry on the field. The young guns are quick off of the snap and can bring it. If they are able to stay healthy for the rest of the season, they will be able to do some damage on defense. They will have to show that skill on Sunday and force Shaun Hill into some bad passes. The secondary should be able to make some plays.
