    A quick note from an entry I did last night, but it's a good stat that shows how tough they were.

    Now if only the secondary can start playing as strong :cool:

    Run D seems to always be moderate to strong in the BB era, don't think it's ever been an issue. It'd be nice to have a strong secondary to go along with it hopefully that comes in due time. But I think that shows BB believes in the importance of being able to stop the ground game first.

    It'd be nice to have a strong pass rush to back up that secondary don't you mean?

    Don't give the front seven any breaks because they play the run well!

    I'll give you that it's not entirely on the DB's and the pass rush has room for improvement. McCourty has looked great most of this early season. But still I'm very iffy on our safeties.
