These last few weeks, the D-Line has look much better, and in turn has made our entire defense look much more stable. Plus, the increased playing time of Dunbar has made the LB group feel much more complete.

Continuity certainly helps, as well as other parts of the defense working well.

The D-line affects every other position.

To me Shanle is an average to slightly below average NFL LB. He's not as bad as many state, but he certainly isn't as good as a few claim.

Obviously he's the best we currently have or he'd be replaced.

Well, he looked like he graduated from the Darren Sharper School of Ball Thievery. Hard for me to complain.

Shanle rocked.

Shanle did rock, but if Sharper continues man loving Rodgers, I'm officially DONE with the ex-#42.

It's been said many times, many ways: Shanle is the best we have at that position.
5th on the team in tackles, and responsible for 2 TO's (both vs ATL). Not bad.

The defense played well as a whole.
