    This could lead to winning some games we shouldn't due to generating lots of turnovers, and/or getting destroyed in some games by giving up so many big plays. Time will tell I guess.

    I'm pretty worried about the first 3 games in particular, because they're all power running teams. They're going to want to go right where we are weakest, right up the middle.

    If our offense stays on the field and the guys on the interior stay healthy, we're more than fine.

    I've yet to see that defense even though the last few years Wally (or CPR) has mentioned getting after it more. I don't think it's in Wally's DNA.

    They did blitz more last season, partly out of necessity.

    The Roland story offense might put up big numbers vs our d.

    What's more scary is our inability to score against them during scrimmages.

    We could get severely gashed up the gut. If we don't, I look for the defense to do ok. But if we can't stop the run up the middle, it will be a very long season.
    You can state the obvious with such eloquence.

    That's just ignorant.
