Diggs made a big difference, but did someone already run the #s showing that overall this is one of the worst defenses ever in Seahawk history? That is pretty bad.
If the cost of a better defense is a bit of internal drama, it is hard not to prefer it. But I get he would prefer a better work environment, than one embroiled in chaos - even if it is more productive on the field.
KJ has always been a trooper though so it is nice to see he is having a better time of it now. And I don't think much of the blame for the issues with the defense this year can be put on him.
But we miss all those 'troublemakers'. We just couldn't afford them. If we still had them, pretty sure we would be in the catbird seat for the SB right now. I notice most of the places our people went to got noticeably better, with the exception of the Eagles and Cowboys. I'd love to at least get Irvin back, we could use him.
Weren't those "stats" about yardage allowed? That has never mattered. Points allowed is the only stat that matters.
This year they allowed 24.9 points per game, playing the HARDEST Strength of Schedule in the NFL. AND, they had one of the best turnover rations in the NFL.
So I don't think we needed those other guys. I'd much rather be grooming young, healthy players for the future.
New England was #! and the yakking about what a great defense they were was incessant! They played the worst team in the NFL twice, the Jets twice, and some other no name teams. They had a cake walk. And still sucked.
