Mark is 100% part of the problem. A big part, no doubt.
But the defense got 90% of the drafting/free agent support these past two seasons so we ask more of them.
They gave up 28 points today.
They gave up 2 passing plays of over 50 yards for TD's today.
They gave up over 120 yards rushing today.
They blew several tackles that turned 3 yard gains into 13 yard gains.
We're supposed to win on the ground and on defense. We're not supposed to win in the air. If we were, surely Ryan and Tannenbaum would have picked up a playmaker or two in the offseason.
