``Defense is a mind-set,'' Haslett said. ``You can't just do your job one time. We've got to win more one-on-ones. The defensive ends are the ones who are hurting us the most. They're letting runners get to the sidelines. The interior people are doing pretty well.''

RE: "Defense is a mind-set"

actually... there is some truth to this. Our DE's are specialized pass rushers... concentrating on rushing the QB and adding pressure on the QB. DE also have to be concerned with containment, keeping RB and QB from getting to the outside in order for the DT and LB to get in on the assist. Once the RB gets to the outside asside from one on one blockers with LB matchups they are off for a big gain.
