My Memory may be wrong but these third and long issues have been around for years.
To the best of my knowledge, we haven't had many good LB's here for the past several years. DJ has been good but not great, and nobody else. Miller was purely a pass rusher his first year and also injured. Much better this year but now no DJ. So really, we've had 1 good LB on the field. It takes at least 2 I think to have a good defense. That said, you can win with a 15 rank defense, somewhere in that range, but your offense has to be getting after it. Ours can, just have to limit these TO's. But this defense will need to step up to go far in the playoffs, because we'll probably be on the road.
