This should bode well for the offense. Only 2 teams in the top two tiers.
nice analysis. Hopefully the offense can take advantage of some of those teams.
Absent injuries I stopped worrying about the offense after watching them go 99 and 95 yards on back to back drives against the Ravens.
I think the Ravens D will drop a few notches this year, losing both starting OLBs Jarret Johnson and Terrel Suggs will really hurt that team. In their place, they have rookie Courtney Upshaw and 4 year vet Paul Kruger, who has started exactly zero games in his career. They are going to get burned around the edges for a lot of yards.
I'd swap the Ravens and Giants in this analysis. The Giants have a stout defense, with an awesome pass rush. I can definitely see them in the top 5 this year.
Were the Jags that bad? I think their defense has some nice young pieces on it and they did retain their DC from last year. I think Seattle is a better candidate for being marked as over achieving.
Jags can't get to the quarterback. Other than that I think they're actually pretty solid, especially when they play us. Their secondary has a bit to prove as well after all the injuries last year.
bulls on parade, deal with it..
Nope. I won't deal with it. I hate that stupid nick name. And I'll ***** about in here as much as I feel like.
I'm with you. I despise that nickname and refuse to use it. It is a mockery compared to the greats like the Steel Curtain and Doomsday Defense.
What so our DL prances by and throws out beads and candy?
I can't believe how many dislike the nickname.
You couldn't pick a better song to pump up a stadium.
song....good. Nickname sucks.
dat's my two cents
It has nothing to do with the song. The nickname sucks. Pick something better - Raging Bulls, Stampede D, something.
I agree with both of these.

Although I always like Rage's song, I'm thirding this.
I'll 4th it.
C'mon guys, think of how appropriate the nickname will be after we start winning championships!
Whomever created that moniker needs to be taken out back and shot. And anyone who uses it should be a social pariah.
It was Conner Barwin wasnt it?
