    Now these guys were having fun out there! Not many QB's can handle this kind of defense.

    Of course, if the pressure is there Wilson and the corners need to defend, tackle, and intercept.

    BTW, it was great to see Vrabel and Colvin outside (as OLB's or DE's or whatever you want to call them). As many have said, the replacement for McGinist is Vrabel! And of course Banta-Cain and Green also played their roles.

    There does seem to be a modicum of talent in the DL and LB units.

    It's unreal...every starting linebacker is also coaching material. An absolute temendous amount of football knowledge on the field before every snap...as others have said, the secondary needs to play tighter and tackle better. They have the mindset of tackling at every catch and it costs them when the receiver makes a move while catching the ball....but I'm not worried.

    I really have never seen anything like this front seven (Chicago 1985 perhaps). The Jets had 4th and 2 feet, and the announcers had absolutely no question that a run would be stopped, and that calling a run would be a major coaching mistake.
