I think our D is better suited to play with a lead, and the offense is much better at getting a lead this year. I am in agreement with others here as it pertains to not being nervous when our D is on the field.
During Tebow's 11 games, the Defense gave up 20.9 ppg which would have ranked top 10. It's too much work but another stat I would want to see is during that 11 game steak what was the TOP for the other team's offense
McCoy leaned on the defense more than he leaned on Tebow to make a 3rd down
This D is built for the lead. It was been the mantra since Manning decided to come here. Score TDs, reduce the rushing attempts of the other team and sack the QB
Not sure this defense is a shut them out type like SF and will have to rely on the O to outscore teams like NE and Hou
