Colin Cole signed with the Seattle Seahawks over the weekend, leaving the depth along the defensive line a serious issue. But losing Cole is not the harbinger of doom that Tom Silverstien and others in the media are making it out to be. I mean, the guy is a perfect 4-3 defensive tackle on a rotational basis. He's not worth near what Seattle paid him, but I'm happy for him as he was a try-hard guy who improved every year he was with the Packers. But his individual skill-set, namely being a less-than-athletic mountain, was't exactly a perfect fit at either nose or end in the Packers' one gap system.
All that said, Thompson does have some serious work to do on the defensive line. But we knew that already...
UPDATE: Brilliant visual evidence of why Cole is, indeed, no great loss... (Hattip: Chicago Hooligan)
