The defensive line has been very good even without Wake the last 2 weeks, and seem like they are improving every week.
As for our linebackers…lets face it, we didn't up grade this offseason. The blitzes haven't worked since week 1 and it just leaves the middle of the field wide open. Misi and Ellerbee are awful in coverage and Wheeler still seems completely clueless out there half the time
The secondary has been average. Grimes is a stud and I have to give props to Nolan Carroll for really playing hard and almost becoming a decent #2 corner. I hope the bye week gets Patterson healthy. We need to look for a new strong safety this upcoming offseason as Clemons just isn't that good. Jones has struggled in coverage but has been just about as good as I thought he would be this season.
Just my 2 cents, take it or leave it
