    No, he says 4 games. He said all of pre-season games is equivalent to one regular season game. GTFO or keep up!

    if you're counting snaps yea 4 preseason games would equal 1 regular season game, maybe a little more actually

    Face it man. This defense is going to struggle mightily this season. If you don't see it, you're in denial.

    Interesting... this next line is directly quoted from it:

    "Horton said eight games total counting the preseason, so at about the fourth game of the regular season."

    How about YOU GTFO and keep up! Total idiot.

    If the browns and cards got it by week 4, so should we. No reason to expect otherwise.

    Im telling you guys, we'll be good. Outside of Zach Brown, we have nothing but intelligent football players on D. And many come from a 3-4 background.

    Pollard, Phillips, Woodyard, Woods, Pitoitua, Ayers....

    I think that we will struggle early, then be above average by the end of the year. One issue is learning the system, which I can see getting done in a few games. The other issue I see is having 4-3 oriented players "shoe horned" into a 3-4 scheme. That issue can only be partly overcome by experience IMO. That, coupled with what I see as a hole at CB, will keep us from being a top defense this season.

    Next year, with a post player evaluation draft and FA season to work with, however, will be different...I can see us getting very good at that point.

    Good chance Horton finally takes on a head coaching gig next year, he's long overdue.

    Very possible, but Whiz is a 3-4 guy, so I would bet he can find a good replacement.
