Lewis the Key?
 
While I'm not sure Keenan Lewis is the key to a good defense, he is going to be an important part of it.

The key to the defense will be the front 7 and how much pressure we can get on the QB, but like you said Keenan Lewis is going to be a huge part of it

We finally have an aggressive corner with both good size and speed, if he can force the QB to wait a second longer than he wants to with good coverage then our OLB's have real opportunities to make plays and vice versa

Just means that Robinson/Greer whoever is starting on the other side will be picked on quite frequently...

We also have some versatility in the secondary, with Kenny Vaccaro playing safety, but apparently able to cover slot receivers (which, in today's NFL, oftentimes includes TEs). And Malcolm Jenkins, able to play corner, even though his ability to play FS is still in question.

Whenever you have versatility, injuries are less damaging than they might otherwise be.

I have not seen decent pressure since the Heavy Lunch Bunch and even those moments were few and far between.
We could have 3 Neon Deon's back there and it would not matter. Have to create some havoc up front.

3 Dieons back there and we'd cause more turnovers then any team ever.

But we'd be looking even worse than last year in our tackling.

I agree. Without a pass rush even a sub-par QB will pick apart an NFL defense.

All 11 players that are our defensive starters are the key to a good defense. Keenan Lewis can completely shut down a receiver but what will it matter if there's no pass rush and other receiver's getting open. For example, Jabari Greer has been a fantastic CB at times over the years (when healthy)... But it hasn't mattered since the defense as a whole hasn't been firing on all cylinders.

He could tackle, just preferred not to have to. Lol. He's the greatest DB ever, I'd deal with that any day of the week.
