This has always been my concern, since we brought Meeks in.

His D worked great in Indy, because of the fast strike abilities of their O. Ours is not the same, at least has not been in the past.

"Fox Ball" has always been run the rock, and stop the run. We seem to be leaning to Run the rock, and stop the pass. And while that makes sense in todays NFL, I am still a little nervous about our run D.

Meeks also led Indy to the leagues worst run defense...

Jackson should not be on this list.

Meeks also led Indy to the leagues worst run defense...

the same bob sanderless defense that when he returned from his injury became the top defense in the playoffs and won the superbowl?

sanders's health determined indy's ability to stop the run.

an argument can be made that a single player can't completely affect a defense...if that isn't the case, then why are people worried about the panthers' pass rush?

I don't understand. John Fox is about run the rock and stop the rock from being ran. Then he brings in Meeks which is last in run Defense.

Congratulations, the top defense for 4 games means so much. Especially looking at the teams they played, the only offense worth a damn was the Pats and they dropped 34 on them. The Chiefs were a one man offense, the Ravens had an aging McNair and Lewis and the only players worth a damn were an aging Mason and Todd Heap and the Bears had Rex Grossman as their QB.

A lot to be proud of there.

the point being, indy's inability to stop the run isn't a result of meeks's system.

indy's run defense sucked long before meeks got there. the colts haven't had a decent run defense since 1995.

it wasn't good before he got there, and it hasn't improved since he left.

...and something else to point out. fox might emphasis stopping the run, but since he's been head coach, carolina has had a top 10 run defense only twice.

they've had 5 top 10 pass defenses, 3 of those being top 5.

All the concerns about our DLine are unfounded. The league is increasingly becoming a pass first league. We are equipped to provide pass rush and play coverage. BUT we also have run stuffers like Tank and LL. I predict a top 10 defense like always and considering the decline in strength of schedule we could have a top 5 defense in both run and pass. I mean its easy in august to say "We aint gonna be able to stop the run." But lets look at the schedule. The only teams whose gameplan and players would worry me are....

Ravens- Ray Rice and they use him.

49er's- Gore and two first round picks used on oline.

Browns- Hardesty and Harrison are dangerous and they have a good oline.

Falcons- Turner is primed for a bounce back year.

Bengals- I think they are pass alot more this year but Benson can run the ball.

The rest are either pass-first offenses or don't have legit olines to run the ball like they would like. SO those that are worrying are worrying enough for the lot of us. I personally have faith this defense will be tough enough against the run to win.
