"Open eyes" needs to lead to more questions about what has changed since 2014 than simply a lack of talent on D.
2014 was a flawed D without playmakers that still made some timely stops, manufactured a pass rush of 41 sacks, and held its own against teams not named NE and Pitt.
We can allow a new staff some time to figure things out....but there is no less talent on this D than there was in 2014. As of now, we have a glaring coaching issue to accompany obvious roster shortages.
Yeah, that's exactly the point I was trying to make. I just thought you stated pretty matter of factly in your other post that we were a better team despite our record and what other fans may think, and I just thought I'd point out that it's all opinion.
