I'd like to see the defense put the hammer down on the bungals this week!! Take the first quarter and remove all hope, insert fear, and roll!!

20 points, no one scores more than 20. That's all I need. Our O should always be able to get to 21. We have way too much talent on offense to score less.

Defensively we look quite impressive as things stand now. But have we played any offensively explosive units yet ? (Though it could be argued that the Jags are one of the league's better units)

I'd like to see us go 15-1 and win another World Title. But, i've got the feeling it's looking more like 12-4. And we get bounced from the playoffs via interceptions (thrown on our behalf)

And the secondary giving our playoff opponent at least 21 points through the air along with numerous drive sustaining completions for first downs..

Houston and Philly are ranked #5 and #9 in total offense, respectively, we held them both to under 20, and we played Philly on the road. Defense isn't our problem.

Nope, sure aint. Roger Goodell is.


@ Makalevi - Yes, we do give up some first-down-gaining pass plays, but you've also got to look on the flipside. We don't allow those big 40-50-60 yard touchdown passes very often, and generally can force a bad pass or hold to a field goal. It's a give and take.

But, on that note, since you were referring to the Jags, they're been pretty good through the air throughout the first quarter of the season. An offense will make gains on any given secondary no matter what. It's just a matter of containing it.
