Honestly, I think last year's d was better with the turnovers and the great run d with an average pass defense. That being said statistically this defense is better. #1 in the league in yards given up per game, #1 in pass defense, #9 in rush defense. My problem is the sacks #20 overall before tonight's game. We are allowing close to the same amount of points a game at 14.2 compared to 13.7 last year when we have faced better offenses. We are doing ok in the turnover department and ok in the sacks. Crazy because if we start getting those our defense should be even better because the pass d has went from 16th to 1st.
Fangio says he is ok with the lack of sacks due to getting pressure but I disagree. Like I have said I think pass rushing DE and OLB is a must in the draft. Need to give these guys breathers.
To sum it up, #1 in total defense (1), improved pass defense (1), run d a little weaker (9). Still playing solid and giving up roughly the same amount of points but we haven't gotten nearly as many sacks or turnovers.
