Even with out Revis we should have a great defense this year. We have the talent.yet we are near the bottom of the league. Yes I could accept having a bad year if we were at least playing good defense. With a more even keel coach I might be leary of moving on ,like I did not want to fire Mangini. Guys like Schwartz in Detroit,Rex they are great for a few years then they burn a team out
We didn't only lose two players, we lost several players, and several more from game to game that have only played half a season to this point.
The Ravens spin is laughable, started fast, they've had the benefit of playing teams like Browns, Raiders, and the Steelers with their back-up and 3rd string QB's, those are some of the breaks that can also help a team. I think the Ravens will fizzle, Steelers too.
