You guys confuse me, you really do.
You: "We have to keep Rex! Our defense is awesome!"
Me: "But we can't beat winning teams, 1-11 against them since 2010. And we only beat scrubs, pad our stats that way."
You: "We had the #1 defense in the league, then #3, now #8. We rock!"
Me: "But the coaching staff is being gutted. Looks like half of them are leaving. They were a major contributor to the defensive success, right?"
You: "No! Every coach who is leaving sucks!"
Me: "Sort of surprised that only 5 of our defensive starters are under contract and Revis looks like trade bait and Harris sucks. That's a decent likelihood that only 3 of 11 defensive players might return."
You: "Don't worry about that!"
