This team without Hardy and a weakened Secondary from last year should've dropped from Top 2 Defense to Middle of the Pack in the NFL. Instead they have become the worst Defense in the NFL and its not even close, while having plenty of talent on the roster.
They started the Season well but then the National Media poo storm happened and Richardson and Rivera threw Hardy off the team effectively. Since that moment, this Defense has not looked the same while they have the talent to at least be middle of the road Defensive Unit.
We need better players in the secondary, but that alone is not why this is now the worst Defensive Unit in the NFL.
