I thought criticism of the defense before today was unwarranted. In 2001, when we made our run, we had a streak (9games I think) of allowing 17 or less points. We won them all, and at the time, I noticed that 17 was somewhat of a magic # for a D. Good teams dont lose many games when allowing 17 points or less. Through 4 games we have been 17 or under in all 4. (Exactly 17 in the first 3) Against Buffalo 7 of those were on a defensive TD, and against the Jets, one TD was just a fluke. Today we held a very good offense to 13 points. The 2 drives early holding them to 3 were great defense, by the way. BB teams historically finish stronger than they start, and historically, the defense gets better throughout the season. Aside from the Cotchery play were he was tackled expect he landed on top of one of our guys, the great Coles run and catch, and the blown coverage vs Walker, the D has been truly tremendous. (it has allowed 36 points outside of those 3 plays). You also have to chalk up the other Walker TD as simply an outstanding play by the Broncos (call, throw and catch). I am very impressed with the D so far, even by BB standards. I expect more of the same against the punchless Fins.
