    The number one improvement on defense over 2009. The 2009 team was the worst tackling team we have had under BB. This year has been a night and day improvement.

    I can't find our YAC, but it has to be among the league leaders. Does anyone know of a site that lists YAC?

    He's a huge part of it. But the defense as a whole is tackling better, especially in the secondary. The secondary tackling was horrendous last year.

    Damn... Offenses have to get past Vince, then Mayo and then Chung and Meriweather. There's also McCourty and Arrington who are both physical corners. Great tackling team for sure.

    Had been thinking that myself. Very noticable difference.
