    There's no question they've improved. They're giving up tons of fewer points and taking the ball away more. Moreover, they aren't getting as much help from the Pats' offense (NE's offense is scoring less, moving the ball worse, and possessing the ball for shorter lengths of time, all of which put more pressure on the defense) as they were early on, and they've played against better offenses than they did the first 3 games.

    Those are all facts. It doesn't mean they suddenly can dominate against Pittsburgh or Indy. I suspect they're not yet ready for those challenges. But they *are* improving...there's really no objective way to deny that.

    Grade inflation through the whole timeline.

    The defense didn't start out "OK", even as the team won (most games) despite it.

    Directionally, of course, you're right.

    How about a few hits from the bong? Perhaps some single malt scotch, as well.

    Now if we could replace Wilhite on this defense I'd be a lot happier. I hate to say bad things on a particular player, but not at all happy when he is on the field.

    They were never close to awesome. now they have gone from barely adequate to one of the bottom five in the league. I will be happy with 2-2 over the next four.

    Defense has been playing on air for 4 weeks, they were due for a letdown. Especially since the offense didn't give them any breaks.

    Don't worry about it, the talent is there and this was to be expected. Bill will give them an ear full and a half this week. I still expect a win next week.
