Jolly Good Fellow
In my calibration of modern defense, I think we are only a hair below average. I don't think we are bad. Our offense was a hair above average. Today's football is closer to ARena football than 90's football.You may be right, but it is much, much, much easier to go from bad to average (defense) and it is to from good to great (offense).
With our offense, that is how we will win or lose. Our 4th down calls, that sometimes put the defense is awful positions, is the strongest example of our "lead" unit.
If we fix the OL, we will be very good to great on offense. We allow way to many free defenders in the backfield. Instead, all issues appear to be pinned on Vad.
