Agree 100%. The fact that we can get pressure rushing 4 and sometimes 3 is a game changer. This year we will make ever team one dimensional (no run game). This also means we won't get carved by a QB throwing to a WR entering space a blitzing defender vacated. I think a lot of people on this board don't understand just how good our defense is. I dont know how another team can counter a defense that plays so well straight up, simply because the pressure is coming from a 4 man rush. Screens dont work because our LBs are too good. Deep balls dont work, because we can afford to keep saftey coverage. Even our prevent isn't that bad, because Smith/Soap/Ray can get after it. Can you guys imagine how good we could be when the D is fully installed?
