Fact still remains that he said it about the offense but the real failing has been on the defense.
That's just not true...the defense could have been better but it has not failed, not even close.
I'll repeat what I said- the defense has basically given up 17 points a game (not counting the first SD touchdown or the half-ending FG vs Tenn- both of which the offense was responsible for)...that's not Ravens 2000-esque but still good...the offense and special teams have given up
10 points a game...that's horrible.
Could the defense improve some? Yes. However, to say they have failed is ridiculous.
