    With so many things to gripe about this may have been overlooked. Though, why bother running the ball when you can throw all day.

    Thatt's the bright spot. The loss of albert has not affected our rushing defense. All we must do is make less mistakes in the secondary and keep the offense of the field longer to give the defense some rest.

    Running defense has never been an issue really. But this stat is pointless if we are losing.

    means very little when they rank last in passing defense.

    Meril Hodge said to many guys were trying to be a hero in the secondary and not staying home doing their own jobs! Which I don't like the man at all I believe that statement 100 percent!

    Exactly. It wouldn't make any difference if we had the best run D of all time as long we are sitting back and letting opposing QBs complete passes at will.

    Next four teams we play and how they rank right now in offense and defense....

    Offense rankings

    Jets Passing--19th Rushing--7th
    Jags Passing--22nd Rushing--19th
    Pats Passing--4th Rushing--26th
    Colts Passing--3rd Rushing-- 29th

    Defense rankings

    Jets Passing--9th Rushing--6th
    Jags Passing--26th Rushing--13th
    Pats Passing--6th Rushing--14th
    Colts Passing--1st Rushing--30th

    Our rankings

    Passing offense--16th
    Rushing offense--5th

    Passing denfense--32nd
    Rushing defense--2nd


    We should be able to run the ball good against the Pats and Colts but the way things are going right now we are gonna have a hard time stopping their passing. It should be a battle of the offenses and a high scoring game.

    I think the Jets game will be more of a defense battle and a low scoring game

    And I think we should have a good game against the Jags

    I doubt much changes in the next few weeks in those rankings.
