    which defense was better - 2007 or today?

    Statistically, 2007 was better, but it seems that today's defense has a better pass rush. What do y'all think?

    that is a hard question

    DEs - Push

    DTs - 2011

    MLB - 2007

    OLBs - Push

    CBs - Push

    Saftey - 2011

    DC - 2007

    ????

    I guess I would go by that and say 2011 player wise but its close enough
    Fear the name, appreciate the game

    Our squad this year is much more talented. 2007 was a better overall defense. This year our defense was crap until the last few games.




    2007 is a million times better, despite the fact taht we're more talented now.

    2007 proved a lot more than the 2011 group has.

    2011 has a lot more to prove.

    Time will tell.

    I got to tell you... I was watching the 2007 Packers Giants game replay and looked at the faces we had on D and currently I think we have way better players on the feild right now...

    I think Spags would have totally donminated with these group of guys more than he did back then...

    I love the guys we have on the field now. They are coming on so strong, especially when their mentors, (ie, Tuck, Osi etc) are playing so well also. The younger guys just seem to need experience, their determination is usually evident. However, one cannot dismiss Strahan, Pierce, those guys were hungry and had a mind set for defense. It's a toss up for me.

    Imo the 2011 defense has all the potential to be better than the 2007 team, with the talent and youth on the team currently. I think the falcons game was the best they played all season, hopefully fewell and the D can keep it up against GB, no reason why they shouldnt be able to as long as they pressure rodgers consistently like theyve been pressuring the qb lately, and the D is obviuosly playing better than they were as of week13. After this weeks game at green bay it will be easier to compare them. like another poster said if they can keep gb 21pts or under we should be good.
