Thank you for a rational and objective POV. Agree across the board. We need to improve the pass rush. I love Bobby, but he is a step slower in coverage. Loved most of what I saw from Spoon...he was tight on coverage much of the game and showed his instincts.
Bobby was not brought back to play amazing against the pass, he was brought back to shore up the leaky run defense up the middle, and get everybody on the right page with gaps, fits and positioning.
Considering he's now ranked 2nd in the entire league in run stop rate (runs that constitute a loss), I'd say successful return for Bobby.
Not to mention his mentorship and leadership, of which Pete credited Bobby's spirited Wednesday speech to the team as a major factor for the increased focus and aggressiveness of the Lions game.
