    Here's an article for all you guys still worried about the D. Horton says his 1st year in Arizona and Cleveland it took about 8 games until guys finally put it all together in his defense. 4 preseason games and 4 regular season games. While I have not been thrilled with the defense so far I'm definitely not panicking. I think we've only seen the tip of the iceberg so far.

    And you guys thought that a transition doesn't take any extra time lmao. Saddle up boys. Were going to win games only if our Offense can keep up with the other team.

    Not worried at all. Especially because KC has only 1 player on offense and no line. We have been good against the run except v GB. I think our defense will be fine to begin the season.

    Of course it takes time, no one said it doesn't take time, But we've been in this new system now 3 months not 3 weeks.

    It's gonna take at least half a season if not more for us to fully get it. This is why I believe we will struggle this year!

    At least half a season? C'mon man really?

    No, it will not take 3 more months. This team is built of veteran players, they will adjust in time, but not 3 more months, maybe 3 more weeks.

    I fully expect us to have a top ranked defense.

    Who thought this? Besides the voices arguing in your head?

    Of course the system will take some time.

    Everyone bashed me because I said we would struggle this season because of the transition from a 4-3 to a 3-4.

    I am hoping but it looks like we have a hole at the 2nd CB spot. Combined with the fact I don't trust anyone to win a matchup pass rushing, I think we will struggle.

    I hope they prove me wrong though.
