Why does the Defense have to suck next year?


This whole idea that our defense is going to be terrible next year is dumb. I for one (you know too) it will be alot better than last year and especially since that Tampa-2 cushion is gone also. We will get more of a pass rush than last year regardless of how Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis make the transition because the defensive line will be better than last year and we will send far more blitzes. This who idea that our defensive backs will suck terribly and our team will lose games because of that is also dumb. The patriots defensive backs aren't much better than the colts..wait they probably aren't even as good. Don't get me wrong we don't have a stud at corner either but us playing Tampa- 2 defense all game long doesn't help them either. If all else fails we sill have undrafted rookies who actually might turn into something (not betting on it) and Coach Pagano was also a secondary coach so that always helps. The defensive line will be better than last year at stopping the run we have way more talent there. The only two positions to worry about are the inside linebacker spots and how Pat Angerer and Kavell Conner play there. Now with the whole we didn't drafted many defensive players thing we should be happy we didn't. Why draft mediocre players on defense this year in a mediocre defensive draft when we can draft better players in a better defensive draft when we can see what our needs are for the 3-4. We also gave our QB an offense and if he finds a way to play like veteran we could actually win 7-9 games next year (our division still sucks Texans are the only contender). Plus Grigson now has gave Luck an offense to work with. Next year the defensive prospects are complete beasts. There so could you could see a player as talent as Tyrann Mathuei (forgive me if I spell that wrong) fall to the second round due to height issues.
