It was rough last year. The interview was right about the big question mark on D with the LBers. Not sure how it's going to shake out. Secondary has some talent, but it really was wasted in the scheme last year and we'll found out if it was scheme or personnel. The defensive front is the most encouraging part of the D. Young and talented, with attitude and ferocity. Jordan might be our best player on the defense and looks to fit better in the 3-4. Akiem Hicks is raw, but super talented. Rookies Jenkins and Foster have lit it up with their opportunities.
Defense will be improved. Enough to go far? We'll see.

He had the second highest reception yardage in his career last year. I don't think age will be the factor that possible injuries are. He's so dependable and selfless and works so hard, so effort and heart aren't questioned. He's been held out some this preseason with a foot injury, so we'll see if there's something more to watch for and he's listed as "Doubtful" for the game this weekend.
There's been a lot of worry, that's been somewhat assuaged by the surprising play of red-shirt 2nd year WR Nick Toon and rookie Kenny Stills.
