1 Cromartie will be on their 2nd best receiver - Not number 1
2 You will see the 46 Defense storming the QB 80% of the time
3 We don't need to use our 1st pick on a CB and can address our Pass rush issue
4 So he doesn't like condoms - who does?
I agree that claiming this defense could be the best of all time is an extreme thing to claim, but in the guys defense, this defense SHOULD be very, very, very good. For one, they were awesome last year and that was without one of/if not the best NT in the game for half the season. A healthy Jenkins and this defense is already even better than last year.
The Cromartie trade obviously does a lot for the secondary, by A) possibly giving us the top CB tandem in the game(AC has proven he can succeed at the NFL level, and now being able to go against the oppositions #2 receiver he hopefully will return to his All-Pro form) and B) opening up more opportunities for Revis to make plays(If AC succeeds in shutting down his side, Revis might get tested a little more next year).
Players like Harris are just scratching the surface of their potential, and players like Rhodes, Thomas, Pace, Leonhard are all in the prime of their careers. The one hole, and it IS a big one, is the pass-rush. Pace/Thomas/Gholston(especially Gholston) need to step up their game, or someone else has to be brought in. Either way, this defense can't reach that level the previous poster mentioned unless this happens.
Regardless, "best defense ever" or not, this "D" should be ridiculously fun to watch.
