We did not do well in sacks or turnovers. We have to improve that.

I think our D is going to surprise some people this year.

Exactly. And considering they were implementing a 4-3 with a lot of 3-4 players, the first few games had a learning curve. Our defense was getting better, and along with the team not quitting at the end of last year, they showed a lot of positive momentum that could make a big difference this year.

We're a young team, and I'm stoked about the potential that our defense has to be consistently good.

The last time you commented along these lines it was pleonasm you despised. Don't think I'm not watching.

Interesting comments. Despite the disagreement regarding the overall performance of the defense, I think we can all agree that we saw a better unit on the field the second part of the season compared with the first part of the season. Maybe I am being overly optimistic, but I do view the improvement of the entire unit as a positive coming into this season. At the very least, our guys are familiar with the system coming in. Combine that with the maturation of some key players (Williams, Ryans) and addition of several players (including guys like Maddox who were thrown into the mix pre-season), I think we see a more cohesive unit.
