    He's healthy enough to consider taking a job in the thin air of Denver. :rolleyes:

    Every fan wants the defense to be more aggressive. That doesn't mean they are right, or it would be better.

    The truth is we have played very good defense for the last 4 years, except when we are overmatched by the opponent. Unfortunately, there are an increasing number of teams that overmatch us.

    I don't know how many times I have to point this out, but Points Allowed is not a measure of defense. Everything contributes to Points Allowed, from Offense, Special teams, Time of Possesion, etc.

    The NFL is a changing organism. Especially the rules as to defending the pass. Even the NFL of 5 years ago is a different game than it is today. The fact that something worked 5 years ago doesn't mean it will work today, in a more pass-centric NFL.

    I think the STESS of sitting back and playing coverage will get him before the thin air!;)

    We didn't because A) one of our CB's was Ty Law and B) pre-2004 was also pre-Illegal Contact.
