Will the run defense be any better next season? If not, buckle up for another long season.

Had we kept Perryman, we would have looked better on run D.  Carter got blocked routinely, and it is Burn's weakness.    We still don't have the personnel to address the run.  Teams are going to run on us all day long, particularly left.

Sure, if a team runs all over you they may win the TOP, and may even win the game. But, it will probably be a low scoring game.


If a team passes all over you, it is going to be a much higher scoring game. 


Which one would you aim to slow down?


Not so sure I am going to worry about our D this year. As @Davidson Deac II pointed out. Our run D was 9th in YPC. If we can stay in that ballpark, we should be ok.


We should have a decent pass rush, and our DBs are good to go. Finding a partner, or 2 for Shaq is about our last real need. 


IMO, we are going to live or die by the hands of the O. Because this D should be good enough to keep us in most games.
