. . . Was incredibly bad. Like, so, so bad. They get to bring up John Beck going HAM on us, which is not flattering.

Hopefully, we improvement and better health along the line and linebacking cores will make us stouter against the run in the first place, and that will keep us from having to overplay it so much on P.A. passes.

Pretty sure our defense was horrid in all aspects, outside of Gamble.

what? a defense starting mostly rookies or first year starters in the first year of a new system with new coaches and with their starting MLB on IR sucked in a phase of defense?

Probably because Dan Connor couldn't do anything to stop the pass anyway so he always played the run. Same thing with Senn, but but he can't play either phase.

This is really not any surprising news, we know they were terrible.

its water under the bridge.

i've got confidence that the defense will make the same turnaround that the offense did last year.

this defense will be a top 10 defense next year in most phases.

I thought Senn was actually pretty good in the last two or so games. He was a missle to the ball and was laying hits, fumbles and getting an int.

Conner was just tackling down the field and being hurt.

We were bad against the run and underneath routes.We could not cover TEs or rbs.Watching nfl rewind we were using a 4 man rush which was not very effective and when they sent a rb or te on a route underneath they were almost always open.Can someone smarter than I break down what was going wrong?

Stat is not suprising at all for obvious reasons.

I think our defense will be much better this season but I really doubt it will be top 10, which is fine since with our offense, we don't need it to be.

i remember things like this being said last year...except it was doubting that the offense would be a top 10 but the defense didn't make it necessary.

i'm not going to go through the whole list of reasons why i believe the defense will be a top 10 next year, but it's more likely that it will be able to than it was the offense last year.
