Would you really be surprised if they figured out a new way to suck even harder next year? Would you reaaaaally be surprised? Reaaaaaallly?

I don't think they'll be worse (I mean it is difficult to get worse than what we saw last year) but they have found new and hilarious ways to be bad before. I anticipate them being better because they hired a real DC this time and not. . . not. . . well, not whatever the **** Richard Smith and Frank Bush were. Damnit Kubiak sucks at hiring defensive staff.

I present the the Houston Texans Rushing Defense circa 2005:
Code:
Rk 	Team 	G 	Pts/G 	TotPts 	Att 	Att/G 	Yds 	Avg 	Yds/G 	TD 	Lng 	1st 	1st% 	20+ 	40+ 	FUM                                                
32 	Houston	16 	26.9 	431 	506 	31.6 	2,303 	4.6 	143.9 	21 	49 	123 	24.3 	10 	1 	7
We gave up less points this year (barely) than we did that year. Thank god for Rusty Smith lol.

Could pair that bad boy with last years passing defense. Same alignment too!

Here's a link to a new McClown article. It sounds soooooo good. I just hope it translates to reality.

This worries me more than the secondary, more than Barwin's recovery, more than Cushing without his "supplements". If DeMeco isn't 100% that will be a significant weakness. Say what you want about the sucky secondary or lack of pass rush, but I totally believe that our season went in the ditch when/because DeMeco was lost for the year.

I agree for the most part. Everyone knows I love me some D-Ryans and what he brings to the defense not only from a performance standpoint, but leadership as well.

But, I think most will agree that our defense was horrendous before D-Ryans went down. I went back and took a gander at the first 5 games just to see how bad it was. Keep in mind, I agree with you in saying the loss of D-Ryans hurt the defense. I'm just posting these for giggles and give us a reminder of how bad our defense was when we were 3-2

Week 1 - Indy gained 463 yards and scored 24 points
Week 2 - Washington gained 421 yards and scored 27 points
Week 3 - Dallas gained 385 yards and scored 27 points
Week 4 - Oakland gained 363 yards and scored 24 points
Week 5 - NYG gained 414 yards and scored 34 points

Default Re: Why the Texan D will be much better in 2011

I think the scheme will help the texans out a lot on defense and it depends on how well Mario Williams transition to OLB goes. The secondary needs some very good veterans to go along with a very young group that just got younger threw the draft.

Not really anything earth-shattering, but a nice little article about Wade and the D's state of affairs.
