Sorry Gtex, but this isn't relevant analysis. It's from the fantasy football section and it's trying to paint our Run D as poor, while including RB receiving stats. Sproles had 50 yards receiving and P Thomas had 15. I'm not sure how relevant that is to our overall Run D, but it's the incorrect information to use to rank us the '31st Run Defense'

Rushing:
Colts got 64 rushing yards 0 TDs
Miami got 153 yards and 0 TDs
Saints got 100 rushing yards 2 TDs

Overall Run D: 66 Rush Att, 317 Rush Yards allowed, with YPC of 4.8.

Puts us at 17th overall against the run.

Link to stats: http://espn.go.com/nfl/statistics/te...sition/defense

Edit: Futhermore, we are the 14th best defense overall through 3 games. Small sample size, yes, but a remarkable improvement over 2010. Here are the stats:

Passing D: 105 Pass Att, 59 comp, 672 yards total, for avg of 7.0 yard per att.
Good for 11th best in the league so far.

We let the Saints put up some points (maybe we didn't let them) hopefully we'll get back to being stingy.
To expand on your point:

After 3 games:

Year Record Net Points
2010: 2-1 Net Points -1
2011: 2-1 Net Points +30

That hasn't happened at all this year.

If you are asking about the teams history or even just the Kubiak era, I wouldn't know.

But really, stopping the run when you know it's a run had nothing to do with my post. It's not the same thing as stopping the run throughout the course of the game.

If your defense can't stop the run at the end of the game when they know the opposing team is running, then that's a huge issue...So far, I have not seen that happen. And honestly, I don't remember that happening too often is seasons past.
