Don't think you can. Truthfully, I don't know why some on here get their panties in a wad if you question the legitimacy of our #1 defensive ranking.

Honestly, I don't care if they are 1st or 15th. If they are helping us to win ballgames, which they clearly are, who cares where ESPN or anyone else ranks them.

My only concern is whether or not they are ready to win playoff football against Brady, Peyton, Rodgers, Brees. So, I think the quality of our Defense is measured in those terms. Not whether or not we can beat Matt Cassel and Mark Sanchez.

After all, we only care about winning Championships.
