Finally Posted September 16, 2010 Share Posted September 16, 2010 Ok. It is too early for that to be any more than "slightly more convinced" but it is still more.Why?I have been paying attention. I don't care how well Ryan plays the chances of us getting deep in the playoffs with a weak defense are slim to none. Elite qbs fail year after year.Our offense lost the game for us this week. That is something we don't get to say very often. It doesn't make the loss any more acceptable but usually our offense carries the team and that is COMPLETELY backward if we want to see a sb anytime soon. It is easier to stop the ball from being moved than it is to move it. Year after year we have failed at the easier of the two tasks.Now there are still some problems on defense but I don't count giving up the big play as one of them. Every defense makes mistakes and gives up big plays. I am far from sold on our secondary.I am ready to join the others and say we need another WR and our Oline needs to get the memo to rise up but I am more focused on how our defense will look over the next couple of weeks. So you can keep belly-aching about Ryan and the offense but if we end up in the bottom 10 on defense again this year it is doubtful even Manning could get us to a sb.It is ALL about defense.
