Since 2008, season after season, watching this defense has be pitiful. We have talked about this subject numerous times and it seems like they are just getting worse than the year before and it's mind boggling. At this point, the excuse of they are young or inexperienced on defense should stop because it's getting old. If this defense stays like it has these last couple of years, the case will be made that the defense will not get better and everything is going to be on Tom's shoulders. The 2012 Regular Season is going to let us know whether they will actually play defense.
