They held up your end but not all fans ends. IMHO INT's are crucial because they end drives, take away points, and give our offense more opportunity to score or at least win the field position battle. That field position battle is key and it has cost us plenty of games.
Sure, we didn't see all the INT's most on here crave, but thats ok. Just as long as the D held up their end, and they did.
Yeah, the rush defense is worse but that doesn't make the secondary play better, it just means we now have a new problem that needs to be addressed.
Now we are seeing 100 yard rushers, the likes of Whinny getting beat for 60 + yarders and long drives in very little time that cost us games. That didn't happen with that group and they still had the sack totals and alot more (alot more) pressures. Remember how I used to put those numbers up for Ray all the time? :)
