Hargrove has been better at that position than Grant all year, it seems to be lucky Grant was hurt, now Hargrove and McCray can fill that spot, they are pass rushing DT's.
We had about 6 guys out on defense since the Patriots game. Greer ( who is just below Revis on the burn scale) porter, sharper, harper, are a really good secondary. We have had the 2nd best secondary since the beginning of the playoffs.
Cardinals were a little surprised by this because you would have to watch the first 7-8 games to see these guys on the field together. We're ranked about #20 but realistically the defense is #10. Greer with sharpers backing has a really good chance of limiting Rice in the next game. our defense is a different story. I really dont know how good they are Fujita, Vilma, and Ellis have all been out. Id probably play AP on my fantasy team
, but once the defense settled down they played the ground pretty well.
Vikings are going to be interesting because they are a Bomb offense and we are more of an methodical drive offense, so if you take away the Vikings ability to make big plays they will be force to beat it down the field.
