The defense has been showing cracks since the cardinals game. I hope the bye week helps them return to mid season form.

What cracks? We didn't allow a TD to the Steelers and absolutely raped Big Ben (no pun intended), held the Hawks to 17 at home without Pwilly, and their main score coming from the benefit of a blocked punt. As for the last game vs the Rams, I honestly don't know what the f**k happened, but it seemed like we lost focus and got too content with the lead and the season. No way that 2nd half vs the Rams was an implication of our defense.

But yes, I also want them to be in FULL FORM come January 14th. This defense is gonna need to bring its A game against Drew Brees.
Roethlisberger was injured and is not very mobile on his best days, whereas Brees is very shifty in the pocket. I think our D will be fine as long as they get some pressure and the DBs don't give up big hits as they did against Dallas. They weren't up to 100% in that game but Brees is a better QB than Romo. Colston is evidently 100% now so it would/will be a great test.
Brees has Montana type vision down field wether he's in the pocket or scrambling out of it. He will spot that open receiver any where on the field more often than not. The key is to get in his face. Can't throw it if he can't see it.

exactly, what cracks? D has been stellar this year, we're not gonna hold everyone under 10 points and under 200 yards.

The D is great but they didn't seem as dominant towards the end as they did mid season. I noticed more missed tackles (the rushing TD by Clemens was horrible) that can really hurt the team in the playoffs. Big Ben was hurt and probably shouldn't have played so that was a favorable match up. A long season and Willis being out are definitely factors so I hope the bye week allows them to recharge to full strength. That said, I realize the D is the least of our worries.
