but since most top draft picks are defense and given the offensive strategy, it's the defense that is supposed to be the better unit. i know revis was out but you have revis, wilson, wilkerson, coples as first round picks on the team, harris a 2nd rounder, pace, landry and scott as high paid FAs, not to mention pouha and ellis. rex's vision is for the defense to carry the team. in a tight game against pitt on the road, this defense may not have stunk but it certainly didn't make any big plays. no turnovers, barely any 3 and outs. at a certain point, rex is going to run out of others to blame.
