I think we are one of the most athletic teams in the league. Today's game showed that we need more experience. I think the last 3 weeks proved that the defense is not elite yet, but I do believe the defense will become elite once they become more disciplined and experienced. The only thing that bugs me about today's loss was the over hyped expectations I was led to believe about them. They look more of like a competitive/athletic but inexperienced defense than an elite great defense which I sometimes forget. Our over aggressive play style is killing us. I remember we were so good in the beginning of the season at putting a stop to the screens and trick plays, but then I think we started focusing on the pass rush and decided to rush the quarterback at any cost allowing for screens and reverses to work.
Offensively we have a way more talented unit than I have ever seen and they are getting better every week. I keep forgetting how much more talented this team is than the last two years.
