Teams can't run on us, so the passing numbers against are somewhat inflated. We may give up some yards between the 20's but we are #1 in scoring D. That is the determining factor in being a great D.
We had 2 poor games this season, New England and New Orleans. Personally I would like a shot at both again.

Our defense is built to stop the run. It does not matter if it's Hoke or the overpaid Hampton there is no change. Same at DE Eason..overated A. Smith or Ziggy no change!

That is a stupid statement.... When eason replaced him last year teams were running all over us!

Hood has been a good surprise filling in for Smith.

5th time in 10 years, i think that's most in a 10 year period ever in the nfl.

01, 04, 07, 08, 10?

This morning, SD is #1 in total defense. Big friggin' deal, they're out of the playoffs
Only stat that really matters is number of W and number of L. Number of pts per game is a better measure of performance than yds per game anyway.

Rushing yards per game against us

2010 ... 64.1
2009 ... 89.9
2008 ... 80.2
2007 ... 89.9 .............. So your response is stupid.

That list of numbers is as stupid as the post u r replying to, why even try to run when it is easy to pass on us. Some of those games teams didnt even try to establish a running game so the rpg are off for that reason as well. Best def rating should include a number of stats, TO's, rpg, ppg, points allowed, points scored on def, etc etc.

For the life of you?

Its yardage given up. SD has given up less.

We nailed down Claussen, Campbell, kept Sancheezo in check, mainly because he cant hit the side of a huge barn cleanly.
Now we get Mccoy, the Stains should not get more than 200 yards on us. SD plays Tebow, who had a huge game yesterday. we need 200 yards difference between defenses. Than statistically yards and points we top the chargers.

with Troy, at times he just needs to stay in check in the secondary, like what he did with palmer when he was hurt. He contained, shut down that entire side of the field. Occasionally blitz is fine, but just hold your spot. Its a shut down on the ling ball. when he roams it losens up, more so against the good qbs, Brady and Brees. We dont have the secondary depth to let Troy roam right now.
