Wondering what the opinions of the defense are after all the new additions.

I am not really concerned with the yards thing. Stopping oppeants fromgaining is great, but preventing them from scoring is better.
That being said, I feel we will be in the top ten. Plasuibly top 5.

Lol, leading the league in anything would be good, but I would love to see us tighten the scoring up. If they cant score on us, they cant win.

I dunno man, as crazy as it sounds, with the way the ravens, eagles, steelers, and patriots played defense this year, I honestly had more fun watching them than any other team in the league... well maybe aside from the colts.

I like watching good defensive games when the defenses are as creative and "exotic" as teams like the Ravens and Pats are... I mean watching all those guys move around, confusing the hell out of QBs, and then making monster sacks, or fantastic INTs... I guess to me its some pretty cool stuff to watch, even if the total point scored in the games is 13-7


Hell, I thought one of the best games this year was the Ravens at Colts... watching Manning doing his best to out maneuver the tricky Ravens D... who were by the way, AMAZINGLY creative that game... Ray Lewis sat there semi mocking Manning by calling a bunch of fake audibles, while guys like Will Demps and Ed Reed kept bouncing between blitz and coverage.


After watching the Vikings and their scorefest shootouts for the past few seasons, to be honest I welcome a change of pace... tiring to watch so many teams score 21 pts in the second half to almost come back and win the game (you might call that "interesting" I call it frustratingly hair pulling)
