Re: LeBeau's reliance on Troy
This defense is serviceable without Troy against most teams, but I shudder to think of how it would perform in a big game against NE, GB, Houston, NYG without him.
Not buying the yardage numbers, which are more about TOP than anything. The defense can't get off the field enough on 3rd down and is not forcing turnovers.
Good enough against Cleveland and Cincy, but if this team is to go where we all want it to go, the defense has to do more.
