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.
