    The New Purple People Eaters?
    I don't think so.
    You can't give that title to a unit that allowed 393 passing yards today.

    When the other team has the ball for 42 minutes and throw the ball 56 times that's to be expected. We're lucky we didn't give up 600 yards today, but we forced 5 turnovers.

    The defense could not have succeeded today, but played extremely well for what they could do.



    Plain and simple: 12 penaties for 96 yards and 5 turnovers on our offense. You can't win like that no matter who you are.

    Exactly. I'm too embarassed to ask how many of them where thrown by JT O'Sullivan.

    Not making excuses for the secondary, but both Safety hurt and Griffith got picked on all day.
    However for almost 400 yards and only 20 points has to say something.
    And when you are basically back on teh feild after consistant 4 and outs you begin to wear out.
    The defense played well with the offense that the Lions had. 2 Stud WR and 2 very solid WR. I have to give them some props. It was on teh offense today, but in no way the D

    I'm not debating the fact that the Defense was put in a no-win today, I'm debating the idea that this current Defense is on par with the original PPE's.
    They aren't.
    They don't destroy opposing offenses, they don't terrorize opposing QB's.
    Sure, the Int's and the fumble recoveries are great, I'll take 'em all day long.
    But until this Defense can start consistantly terrorizing opposing QB's, the title stays in the past.

    BTW, Singer, O'Sullivan had 148 of them.
