finally cracked the top 10. it took a while, but this defense is playing pretty good now considering all the injuries we have had. beason out,gamble out, nakamura out, james anderson out the last 2 games, ron edwards out. and playing a bunch of nobodies at corner, and 4th and 5th safeties on the depth chart.10th against the pass, 17th against the run

I predicted we would have a top 10 defense this year. I also predicted we would be 11-5.

year 1 top 10 offense

year 2 top 10 defense

Has to be a year 3 right?

Having to purge the old with the new..but new GMs just do not usually keep incumbent coaches with moderate success and definitely not with 2 losing season. Not fair but a reality.

It's not like we're the only team that plays these teams.

Kudos to the players and coaches.Even better some of these guys like J Thomas, DJ Campbell are showing they may be starters which would mean draft picks can be used on offense

wheres that guy that kept on bringing up my prediction that we'd have a top 15 and possible top 10 defense this year as an example of my being an idiot?

lots of reasons that i can be considered an idiot, but i would say this isn't one of them.

I hope you are not referring to me.I have always said we could be a top 15.

Good NFL teams lose to "nobodies" all the time.

The Chargers beat the Steelers in Pittsburgh last week.

The team with the best record in the league lost to the Panthers last week.

In the NFL, you'd better play well against the bad teams, or they will upset you.

This is cumulative season long stat right? Are you trying to say we have played nobodies all season??

Even though our records don't reflect it I think the NFC South is among the best divisions in the NFL. Maybe I am a homer, but getting a win against Tampa, ATL, or NO is an achievement and none are a gimme.

Then throw in this brutal non-divisional games,

SEA, Den, Dallas, NYG, Redskins, Chicago.

Looking at our schedule we only have played maybe three bad teams. KC (how the fug did we lose to those ass clowns), Philly, and San Diego. We have one more scrubby team left, OAK.

So 12 of our 16 games were against what I would consider quality opponents.

Now compare that to the Colts 9 wins

GB- good win, good team, but at home, after BYE

Minny- quality win

Cleveland- terrible

Tennessee x 2- terrible

Miami- terrible

Jacksonville- terrible

Buffalo- terrible

Detroit- not a good team this year

Not to mention they have losses to terrible teams like the Jets and the Jags.

They also have another game with KC on their schedule.

I am not faulting the Cotls they have to play the teams that are scheduled, but hotdamn who do you have to give a hand job to to get a schedule like that.
