Before you express your outrage let me say this:
I support the defense.
However, several points must be mentioned, such as:
The two pieces of the "Williams Wall" are still in court proceedings to make sure they can play all year this season. THEY ARE the run defense.
The defense is so much different when E.J. Henderson is involved. He needs to stay healthy this year.
Both starting safeties are entering their second year in the system, but while Tyrell Johnson is only a second year player entering his first year as a starter, he got playing time last year because Madieu Williams, the other starting safety, missed almost half the year with a neck injury. They also need to stay on the field.
This year, the defense is finally showing the ability to pressure with only the defensive line. If the LBs are left to do what they do best and swarm to the ball, the "Williams Wall" is cleared to play, and our stellar starting CBs play at a high level, then this defense could be scary.
Verdict: Truly scary.
