#1 defense my ass...when we absolutely have to have it, they can't stop anybody...... They're frauds....been saying it since week 3-4. 20 pts in the 2nd half 15 pts in the 4th......terrible. The sad part about it is i still see folks giving them a pass....the focus is now shifting from the pick 6's and TO's to the ****ty kicker.
Defense played with a completely different mentality in the 2nd half. We lived in the backfield in the 1st half. Luck was overrun on every drop back. What about the 2nd half? How many times did we play 8 yards off and sit in a soft zone instead of being aggressive?
I do agree though. Not the #1 defense. That said, the reason you saw two different defenses tonight is because we played with two completely different mentalities in each half. I'm not giving them a pass. They played like garbage the 2nd half. My reasoning is because we went into our big lead shell and played soft in the 2nd half instead of going for the kill.
