It's actually somewhere in between. The defense has been ranked high since LeBeau has been here, but it's also had a habit of squandering leads. It's also gone from Superman to Clark Kent when Troy is missing.

That a defensive scheme's success relies so much on a freelancing superstar is kind of telling, perhaps.
