    Could it be...Bengles best D in AFCN

    After 5 games and in sole place of the AFCN, could it be that the Bengles D is the best (at this point of the season) in the AFCN. Besides, Palmer's lucky come backs, their D has improved dramatically from last year, and is the reason why they are in 1st in the divison.

    I believe, at this point, our D is still one of the best in the league, but just lost that kill instinct that they had in previous years. Pol return should help us dramtically, but time will tell. Is it the play calls or just bad execution.

    As for the Ravens, their D slipped more than ours this year. Teams are scoring "at will on them" +25 points in some games, very unlike them.
    1) Harrison, S
    2) Nsowu, ILB
    3) Pettis, WR
    5) Ballenger, RB
    5) D. Shultz, TE
    7) Gage, WR
    7) Frazier, DL

    * trade Bryant a 3rd and 5th to Indy for #49 and a 4th

    1) Evans LB
    2a) Gesicki, TE
    2b) Chark, WR
    4) Nwsu or OO, LB
    5) White, S

    What ever is going on with this defense of ours, I'm glad it is at the start of the seasons to get the bugs out. Personally, I think the defensive players that were or on the cusp of being maybe too old, are now actually too old.

    I don't buy the old thing. I think this defense is centered around troy. I think a bunch of defensive plays are not being called because of no troy. It is so bad they have the defense set up this way.

    If they are to old and lost a step it should get worse as we get closer to the playoffs even with troy.

    Bungles D was good last season too. QB play screwed Bungles last season.

    Bungles D is the best D in AFCN atleast in first 5 games.Zimmer is doin a great job there.

    Lets see how Steelers D respond once Troy comes back in. I think Steelers should be back to Top-5 D in the league once Troy comes back.
    Steelers Draft 2015
    Rd 1: Devante Parker - WR/ Kevin Johnson - CB
    Rd 2: Danielle Hunter -OLB
    Rd 3: Steven Nelson - CB
    Rd 4: Derron Smith - S
    Rd 5: Henry Anderson - DE
    Rd 6: Wes Saxton - TE
    Rd 7: Deon Simon - DT

    To me, the Lions play hard, go through all the motions, make a game ofit but, just can't win. That will change some day.

    I'm glad you said that Troy should not be used as an excuse. We had the number one defense last season and to the point, some like myself were asking, " could they be better or as good as the 70's defenses. ? "

    I can see a drop off or whatever with out Troy but, I didn't think they would be so out of character without him.

    If Woodley could step up, it would help the secondary much more. Ratcliff, Deshea and Clark haven't been or had their acts together in my opinion .

    It's a looooooooooong season. It's a marathon, not a sprint. They're going to have their share of injuries and adversity. Those are things that champions adapt to. Can they? We will see.

    I was using Troy and soft coverage as an excuse, but no longer. This is the same defensive scheme that dominated the league last year and it's time for the players to "man up" and start making plays. I'm a little encouraged that we're starting to see life from the linebackers.....although the search party is still out looking for Woodley.

    Let's see how the Bungals hold up as the season progresses. They have been getting pretty lucky here lately with some late scores in the 4th quarter. They still have to play the Bears, then play the Ravens and us again in back to back weeks. Later come the Vikings. Some of that shine will start to dull out as the weeks move on.
