Let's pump the breaks on EJ Speed. He hasn't proven anything yet and to say he will be the next darius leonard is very very premature.  Darius was a rookie All Pro, not exactly something that happens all that often.

 

Also, Ben Banogu getting 14 sacks (and two more than J. Houston?), lets calm down there too.... Bradley Chubb has 12 sacks in his rookie season with the broncos last year... and that was playing opposite Von Miller who was taking all of the double teams etc.

Love the optimism but you are setting yourself up for disappointment. Hope you keep the same energy if our defense gets beat up by a good team in LA next week.

 

We are still very young, but we have a lot of promising pieces that make me excited for the future. Top 5 is too premature at the moment imo.

I don't think a top 5 D is to out of question. I think we'll be top 10 for sure. We have all 11 returning and another year under the system.  Plus Houston and a lot of promising depth. I believe Hooker will have a huge year. He had 6 targets last year. He didn't have big Ben, Brees, rivers, Ryan, ECT throwing his way. They'll take shots. 

 

Either way I'm excited to see what we can do. 1 more week!

While I believe our defense will make improvements over last year, they may actually regress in the rankings due to the schedule they face this year.

 

Week 1 versus Chargers

 

Week 3 versus Falcons

 

Week 4 versus Raiders

 

Week 5 versus Chiefs

 

Week 9 versus Steelers

 

Week 15 versus Saints

 

Those 6 teams will stress our defense very much in the passing game and will inflate the rankings simply because of the yardage we'll likely allow.

 

Another year in the system, another free agency period, another draft and THEN we'll likely be a top 5 unit regardless of who we line up against.

 

Just my humble opinion....

I sure hope you’re right because that would be another amazing draft for Ballard.

I suggest people on this forum re watch  the KC game.  They have some young talent, but until I see otherwise, they r a below average D.   I am not trying to b negative.  They played a lot of qb challenged teams last year.  They went up against a great O and honestly, I was like ugh. This year will tell us alot about our team.  No hiding anything.

    • Oh, that's what I fear, for sure.  But even if that's the case.... What's the long term solution?  Who starts at QB in whatever city they have to play in in 2030?  Jk.... slightly.... That damage won't be undone soon, or easily.... Surrounding talent won't fix his issues, just raise the floor a game or two.
    • Oh, the players already know that, regardless of who starts jn The present, past, future, they are well aware JB isn't a true #1 leader at the qb going forward.  Stop gap? Sure... If there's an endgame.
    • This list does not fit the narrative you are trying to put forward.  Only 2 would even be close and even they had chances.    Browns and Redskins don't even count; they are dysfunctional franchises who had plenty of chances but couldn’t get out of their own way.   Dolphins, Titans, and Bears all could have had good QBs if not for trying for retreads, sticking with a player too long (Mariota, Tannehill), and/or missing when they had good players available to draft (Ryan, Mahomes, Watson). Also jury still out on Trubisky.   Vikings and Broncos have not had the best luck with QBs lately, but they have also lingered in the mediocre to good record zone a lot which doesn't help them getting a high draft pick for QB . They also got a few good seasons out of retreads which helped them in the short term, but not the long term. Although in the Broncos case I am sure they will take their SB with PM.   I will give you the Jets, they have had some bad luck. When they did have good picks there wasn’t much available; although jury still out on Darnold (also they could have taken Lamar Jackson). Buffalo also had some bad luck for a few years, but they also blew their chance to draft Mahomes (though Allen may still turn into something).   During the last few years all these teams have had periods where they had a player/or players  as good or better than JB and it didn't amount to much other than keeping them from a top draft pick. If you don't have an very good - elite QB you are just playing the lottery hoping for one of those all the stars perfectly aligned runs that rarely happen.
    • Thanks for this.   My favorite part is his tackle at 5:30.  
    • Not a big deal.     Brissett puts fans in an odd position.   He is almost the definition of average.  His QB rating is average.  His yards per game is below average but his INT % is above average.  So I can understand supporters and detractors.
