Is the defense for real?

I know Plummer is a joke, but the Broncos were one of the top offensive teams last season. They exceeded my expectations today. I would have been happy giving up 17 points.

I believe they are.

Again, the D did not give up a offensive TD at their house. Outside of a few slip-ups on the mis-direction plays, they did a good job.

What was the TOP for both teams?

they're much improved

Yes. They were in the right place far more often than not, and they kept stepping up rather than wilting under pressure. They're for real; maybe not a sub-10 points per game every week kind of defense, but a solid defense nonetheless.

Yes they are for real and hopefully will continue to grow into next year. They are just a pass rush away from being playoff caliber. It will require more talent in the off-season though.

I think it's just a little too soon for a declaration. We thought they were pretty good at this point last year, too. Having said that, this defense, in comparison to recent ones, does indeed seem a little...different.

For real... top-10? Not just yet.

10-15? Yes, most definitely.

16th in points allowed last year, plus some other impressive rankings to go with it.

This year, we definitely make a jump in all categories, and it won't be helped by games like allowing 3 points to the Bengals' backups.

Defense is probably top 10. Offense is not top 10.

The 2002 Donks were #5 in the league on defense. The had a top 10 offense and missed the playoffs.

The 1998 Chargers were #1 in the league on defense. They went 5-11.


A good defense is not enough.

Too soon to tell.

On the other hand, I went into the season expecting it to get better as the weeks go by, not worse. So if we're starting here and get better...

We were better last year against the run, Giants game not withstanding. So I would expect us to do well against a predominantly running team, like the Donks. Plus, they really don't have a dangerous back right now.

I think the jury is still out against a very good passing team like the Colts or a balanced run-pass team like the Bengals. Those kind of teams will expose our safties, which I think are still a weakness.

They appear to have better fundamentals across the board and much more speed at DE and LB. Even Bell looks to have picked up a step from last year.
