I know there is a defense thread but this is a separate issue all together. I believe the niners defense is the best in the league. They have the best do the best lb corp and a top 5 secondary. I believe Baltimore is close behind us but their dl and lbs aren't as good they do not have the pass rushers we have or the tackling or speed at lb. their safety reed is better but I think their 2nd 3rd CBS are worse. Houston is a top 5 defense and so is Pitt but Pitt has average CBS and their dl isn't that good at all and phi has potential as do the giants.
How would you rank you top 5 defenses?
One more note....at the beginning of the year a lot of us were saying the niners d is a top 10 and even a top 5 defense if our offense improves just a little bit. We were more than right. I would also like to call out the few zones to eat crow be a man and admit they were wrong when they debated to the death that the cowboys defense was just as good or even better than the niners defense. Start eating the crow pie please....you know who you are.
