This DEFENSE is for REAL!
 
I thought they would be improved, and like a lot of people, figured a defensive ranking of somewhere around 20-25 would be sufficient to get us back to the playoffs.

I don't know what the yardage rankings are right now (and let's face it that is a somewhat meaningless stat) but what I am seeing on the field is far surpassing that.

In two games they have given up 3 touchdowns. and 2 of those were on a short field after a turnover. Time after time they come up with big plays at crucial points in the game. and today they did it with just 3 healthy linemen.

I am amazed by the progress they have made in such a short amount of time. This is like a dream come true.

sorry, because of bad play calling. Meaning forcing the run or Ingram, and Drew giving the other team 7 each game. We would be 0-2 without the defence. Thats just fact. wtg D

I am still not willing to say they are for real yet. However, they are really improved and that is good enough for me right now.

We are improved no doubt, but our defensive backfield is still a liability. I would love to know what this D would look like with everyone healthy.

Im watching Seattle. Now thats a defense

right no praise

right no criticism

we are not healthy enough to really judge and teams are just now getting tape on us.

i say week 5 we should be able to say something.

They play better than last year. But that is not saying much.

I want to see us play a good team before I give them my blessing.

Improved, but reserving the "For Real" label when appropriate. ATL was an emotionally charged game in the dome and TB has a glaring hole at QB and Head Coach.

I absolutely love what Ryan has done with this D, but not willing to give the "For Real" label yet. I'm very impressed with the D-line considering the injuries, too. I label them "Vastly Improved Until Proved Otherwise".
