That 2003 Falcons defense was a joke (no offense to Wade Phillips). They couldn't stop a sloth from going end to end on the football field.
Jim Mora (Jr.) has brought in some players, though, that should make this defense respectable. With Vick at the helm, the team is rarely out of a game. I fully expect this team to make the playoffs. Their defense, however, will prevent them from winning more than possibly one game once they get there.
