Our defense was the worst in team history and a lot of that was a direct result of the idiot owner forcing a schematic change when he scapegoated Rob Ryan. I don't see a radically different defense today. The talent they brought in was marginal. They lost Ware, Hatcher and Lee. You pretty much have to be forcefully optimistic simply because it's training camp time. There is nothing on paper that says this defense should be anything other than awful this year.
