The Cold Hard Facts

As billy said, our D got dominated on the ground. Bad news when you consider we were playing the BEARS. This is not a good team, and it definitely is not anywhere near the tops of the League in the rushing category.
In the Bears defense, they are 3rd best Rushing team in the league so far. They were averaging 5.2YPC going in, we gave up 5.48. Much of that was when we were in the new 3-4 alignment, which obviously needs some work.

As of now we rank 26th against the run. But we\'re 13th in scoring defense.

But yes, I\'m a bit worried also WhoDat.

But lets face it, this is a win-win year for us. If we lose, Haz and Co will most likely be gone. You think there are any coaches who\'d like to get their hands on this much talent?

FWIW>>>
