Season saved. Given all their injuries to their D, the Jets are far more likely to be giving guys like Chia a call than we are.

Sure we played like garbage for a large extent for the Dallas game, but we still barely lost. I think Benning may hang in there after all. If we get trounced by a team falling hard like Cgy though, then it's worth some more valid concern.

Keeps showing that there are decent extra bodies available for defence that won't cost you a ton. There have been a number of low value trades for guys (Leopold, Allen, Gonchar, Brewer, and now Harrison) who are decent fill in help and don't cost your future.

I hope Benning has something bigger up his sleeve. We don't have depth at the position and we don't have anyone in the system knocking on the door.
