    I would have thought that paying a quarterback 40 million a year would have made that possible…..

    If the Cooper Rush led Cowboys beat the Rams, Ima start wearing underwear again.

    Oh shut up negative Nancy. Our secondary did very well considering who they have went up against the last 2 weeks. So sick of these negative Nancy's pretending they are real fans, because they can find some flaw here and there and call the team garbage. Go be sad somewhere else after our victory.

    Exactly.

    We haven't had a defense this good since the 90s, maybe not since I've been a fan.

    These guys are great.

    He produced like Dorance Armstrong, who is much cheaper.

    Thank you for this. You have demonstrated quite clearly that oyu have no idea what you are talking about and substitute qualitative generalization and characterization for analysis.

    The Bengals only were able to get timing routes on in cuts to work and even then they did so by changing the depths of the route. Brown was outstanding staying on top of routes in particular. The safeties have the range such that they are regularly on time to throws outside and are making plays. All 5 of them have been consistent in their tackling.

    The main issue was the Dline was completely gassed after the three and out and fumble from being on the field to often. It's a team game. On a better note they have figured out they can shut down middle runs by replacing Odighizuwa with Gallimore or Hill. Lack of speed at LB does allow runs outside.

    This year the defence will be the difference between winning and losing. Other years the offence could put up points, but this year will be about the defence.

    Especially in the Cooper Rush QBed games.

    This is a real problem for us this year. Add to that poor recognition skills by some on the LB corp, and the ability to shed and avoid blockers.

    On defence this is the weakest link.

    Considering our current WR room is missing Gallup, Tolbert and Washington, that's not entirely surprising.

    Praise like that from an opponent is high praise indeed.

    I criticized LVE and Barr last week for their poor play. This week they played so much better. They were coming up to stop the run and making good stops. The other guy who improved a lot from last week was Donovan Wilson.

    I am really liking how this defense is developing. Bohanna is becoming a dependable run stuffer in the middle while Odighizuwa, Gallimore and Hill are doing enough to create some problems up front. If Sam Williams develops into a pass rusher, this front 4 will be good enough to make this a dominant defense. And other than Lawrence, they are young!
