As line coach with the Vikings, the defense led the league in rushing defense from 2006-2008, allowing a mere 70.8 yards rushing per game.  He also had his hand in the development of Pat Williams and Kevin Williams.  We all know those guys are pretty good.  Imagine if Sione Pouha and Kenrick Ellis became as good as those two…just saying.

Earlier in his career, in 2004 with the Bears, tutored a young Tommie Harris and Tank Johnson, two more guys that turned out to be quite good, wouldn’t you say?

The Jets have a young, fast defensive line. Rushing the passer has been a problem for this team in the past, but they have a chance to rectify this in 2012. They need a guy to teach the linemen correctly.

Karl Dunbar is the guy, and a reason to be optimistic about 2012.
