And how do you know that our defense won't be able to stop the points? Going off past irrelevant stats or the very vanilla 4-3 defense you have seen in the preseason?

No one knows what our defense will play like and all this Ryan getting fired is way premature...

Re: If Rob Ryan fails to fix the Defense Who's Next DC?

Our personnel hasn't been that great since Mark Fields and Sammy Knight were here. Last year Spags ran the worse possible scheme for an already weak group of players. We've NEVER been able to get pressure out of a 4 man rush and he was betting the house on it. We haven't had an elite pass rusher in years. Not since Will Smith and Charles Grants glory days. People always seem to flash like shooting stars for us as far as pass rush goes. Smith...Grant...Darren Howard anyone?

2010 we had the 4th best defense in total yards...

2010 We had a healthy defense that had attitude and liked to hit... That attitude is coming back and I like what I have seen so far. In 2009 our D was 27th; we jumped to 4th the next season so the impossible can be accomplished.

He's never had a team in the playoffs which may come to hurt us come that time of the yr. I just don't wanna see our team wasted having one of the best offenses if not best. we could be a dynasty team if we had a decent def.
I beg to differ on the 2-3 guys.

Off the top of my head.
Vaccaro
Haralson
Johnson
Foster

We only need middle of the pack.

I don't see anyone of those guys starting all of them are going to platoon.
Vaccaro should start but probably wont granted he'll see a lot of time
J.Jenkins may start at some point as well
Haralson and Foster and Johnson is going to come in off the bench
K.lewis is the only real starter that we have new starting
I just don't expect to see a big difference but hey we can't be any worse than were last yr
Everyone says we only need to be middle of the pack. Well that's hunky dory and good. I want a nasty mean rip your head off turnover causing unit were we don't have to score 40 points and sit on the edge of my seat hoping its gonna be enough for the win
I wanna see some 40-3 games or some shut outs .Don't you guys get tired of standing around the water cooler at work talking about how good the offense is but have to make excuses for the defense
