that's true, I'm scared to think what Williams would've been able to do with our defensive roster.
I tell you though, the key to Washington's success has been their ability to stuff the run with 3-4 guys. That has allowed them to drop more people into coverage. Otherwise, no way their backup DBs, due to injuries, could cover anyone. It's amazing how they sometimes only put 3 dudes on the DL and still stuff the run. That is amazing to me. Half the time, we were putting 8 there and guys were still running around the corners.
If Washington didn't have the foundation of being able to stuff the run with so few DL like they do, their entire house of cards would've came crashing down.
If we could stuff the run with just Spears, Fergi, and Canty on the DL, our DBs would have a ton of INTs.
I also wish we have a little bit of Wash's scrappiness. (oh yeah and gameplanning)
