Are you serious? We completely dominated with our front 4 against the Packers and Lions. It wasn't our front 4 that failed us. Ponder was getting rid of the ball quick on Sunday and our DBs did nothing to stop it. Tarell Brown was a massive disappointment against MIN and he needs to step it up. Also hate me if you want, but Willis and Bowman had a bad day in coverage. Our front 4 was good as always. Doesn't matter how good your pass rush is if guys are immediately getting open.
Also anyone who said the Parys Haralson injury wasn't big knows nothing about football. It has a massive effect on this football team. Aldon has to stay out there every snap. Sealing the edge, not getting breathers, chasing down running backs downfield, covering TEs and RBs on play action. There's a ton of responsibility to that and anyone who thought Aldon would succeed off his talent alone was just fooling themselves. Aldon's been solid but our D would be so much better with Haralson in the mix.
