Re: Is it Really Ireland's Fault?
Fact is our run defense was way better with Dansby and Burnett.
I don't know about way better. Our run defense wasn't all that good as the year went on last year. We wound up allowing 4.0 YPC for the season. This season, we're allowing 3.9 YPC but teams are running it more on us so more yards are being allowed.
Let's put it this way, these are the rushing yards allowed for the last 8 games of 2012.
That's 132 yards per game.
We're allowing 119 yards per game this season.. so I don't know about much better.
Our run defense has sucked since we switched from a 3-4.
