    Isn't that the first question that should be asked of a defense? If we can't say absolutely yes then we need to draft a run stopping at in 1st or 2nd rd. What do you think?

    I think we'll be a better tackling team in 2013.

    One reason I say that is because week-1 we came out hitting hard, but lost. That loss took a little out of us in week-2 cause you could see a difference in tackling.

    Every time our defenders tackling abilities were criticized, they came back strong the next week.

    Michael Wiffin will still miss 20 tackles though so you have to take that into account when you're talking about a large improvement on D.

    With the improvements in our front 7 hopefully our starting FS will not be relied upon to make so many tackles.

    I feel better with Williams on the staff. The LB trio are good at tackling. Casey & Morgan as well. George Wilson is also an improvement at SS playing in the box. We'll be an improved defensive unit.

    With all the changes it is easy to forget guys. Now we will see what Munch is really made of. In all fairness to the guy he was set up for failure his first two years. This year is his to shine. If not then another change needs to be made.
