They have a top 10 defense and we don't. They also have elite skill guys in Fred Taylor (one of the great backs of the NFL) and Greg Jones at running back. They have borderline Hall of Famer Jimmy Smith and first rd pick Reggie Williams as WR's and Leftwich is a total stud at QB.
Right now, most people around the league would take their defense over our 32nd rated defense, and their offensive skill guys over our guys. That's pretty much why we don't get the same 5-11 hype as they get.
