I'd say our defense is "decent", not great

They may give up the statistics, but hold when they need to for the most part and seem to be getting the job done the majority of the time.
agree. they have scored, 21,23,29,10, n 27

A game isn't just one play.

A player is entitled to have a bad day.

Its not all about stopping cam, how about not giving up big run plays. How about tackling someone... anyone...

How about winning? We seem to be doing that pretty well with our 15th ranked defense...

May not be pretty, but we're 4-1 all the same!

49ers held phenom Josh Freeman to 3 points today. Next week, we get him.

If we can also shut him down, that'll shut my skepticism down.

But I doubt it.

If we don't toughen up our D, Matty-Ice (wooooooo) is going to shred us.
THAT is going to be one tough pill to swallow.

No that was what the BS PF call was to extend a stalled drive, and the I am hit as throwing, throw it up for grabs lucky catch (greer falls) TD by smith.

That's lucky dog. How come only the Saints get lucky, but a horrible PF call on a 3rd they didn't convert and a third down toss up for grabs lucky catch and td, aren't? I don't get it, but that's 14 frigan points right there, and I think the INT by Brees lead to 7 more.

That's a silly theory. You're welcome to it, but that's silly. That's one game, and they were away.

Tampa, has scored 20, 24, 16, and 24. I say if we hold them to 20 or so that's normal, but we are also going to get their topppp game. A loss puts them 2.5 games behind us with Chicago coming up in London, and us after that, again.
