On defense who is just so buttfuckingly awful that you just know he's going to cost us some touchdowns.
Gone are the days of Fua giving up 30 yard runs while getting pushed back into the gatorade table, or simply flailing while collapsing drunkenly to the ground like Cary Collins in a Charlotte bar circa 1998.
No more Nakamura with his 2 inch vertical letting a wounded fuging duck with 30 minutes of hang time somehow fly over his hands and into the receivers grasp.
No more Norman and his preference of playing behind the safety zone at the snap and his desire to dive in on already covered slot receivers on goal line game losing possessions.
We have done some amazing things with this defense. We have TWO UDFA rookies getting major playing time in our defensive secondary in White and Lester, TWO starting rookie tackles, and now a starting rookie 5th round OLB. That's almost 50% of our defensive starters that are Rookies.
But here's the key, along with those rookies we have solid vets that rotate in. Dwan, back from injury can spell KK and they don't lose a step - in fact he's still probably better than KK at this point in their respective careers. Mikell and Drayton Florence can step in at safety and corner respectively and play above solidly. Blackburn, once back from injury, provides stability outside at the LB position.
And on top of all that we have 4 super stars on defense. Hardy, Johnson, Keek and TD are absolutely top 5-10 in their respective positions in all of the NFL.
Sure we have some positions that are weaker than others, corner probably being the weakest, but they are servicable at worst and league average in actuality.
No more Fuas or Nakamuras. No more Everette Browns, Dan Connors, McClains, Richard Marshalls, or Sherrod Martins.
This Defense is legit and brings the pain. Kiss our ass haters, and eat the turf bitches.
