And honestly, Id rather have more 3 and outs, keep the defense fresh, over getting gashed all game until we get lucky and get a pick.
Youve seen a lot of football and a lot of great defenses, MH. Are you really satisfied with Perry and his scheme? Dont you think/feel like they can play better?

But our personell has changed in the past 3 years. And lets not forget that we won a SB with PF as our DC and did it while playing tremendous defense in our SB run.
As I have said in other threads this week, our defense relies on our pass rush. This is true now and it was true under Spags. PF places no less of an emphasis on the pass rush then Spags did.
But in today's NFL, with more and more mobile QB's, the need to have corners and safeties facing the QB is very important. It could be that Spags system has become obsolete. His D was 32nd after all this season in NO.
I think the PF system is fine when the players are good and they play well. Thats true everywhere. So for your own mental health and piece of mind, I would stop focusing on the DC and focus more on how crappy our players played this season.
