Right, but its the Jags. They traded Monroe and lost Joekel for the year. Lemonier is much more raw version of Aldon. Its no excuse.
We still have a top 10 D, but it doesnt compare to Seattle or KC. Best LB corps in the NFL, and the DB's are much improved, but with Justin Smith getting older, the impact he used to make on the pass rush is exposing the rest of the D.
We can still win a title with our D obviously, but I think the general assumption of our D being top 2-3 is a misconception.
