Flip--we lost 3 of 5 in December last year (yes there were 5 weekends). Defense played better "statsitically" but still couldn't create turnovers and game changing plays. That has been the problem for 3 years now. It all starts with sacking the QB and for three years we have seen a decreasing total of sacks because other teams know exactly what we are going to do...rush one of the two OLBs. They set up their initial protections to deal with it and then release the person form the off side Nowhere near enough blitzes by Timmons. Nowhere near enough pressure from the "occupy the blocker" defensive linemen.Just look at how guys played in December of last season once Troy was back and James was healthy and Allen started playing. It changed everything. Even guys like Hood starting making plays. At the end of the day, we need players that are difference makers and last year we didn't have them.
