    I've never liked Walker. He doesn't seem overly bright.

    Walker has already distinguished himself as an il-informed slug; so there's really nothing to see here.

    However, even if we were to give him the benefit of the doubt as being as right as that proverbial broken clock... ranking #3rd in the AFCE certainly does not disqualify them from still being a league-wide Top 10 D.

    "Vastly improved" could mean moving into the top half of the league's defenses, which IMO, would be great for the Bills considering they were in the high 20s, and almost as bad as the Pats in pass defense.

    On paper, I'd give the Jets the nod, but I think when they play the games, their statistically rankings will likely falter. I think that they may be pretty good against the run, but teams are going to gouge them in the passing game. Their safeties remain a big liability in the passing game, and there's no guarantee that they'll generate a better pass rush than they did last season. Coples is converting from a 4-3 DE to a 3-4 OLB as well as being a rookie.

    I'd say, as of today, it's:
    Jests
    Fins
    Bills
    Pats

    Instead of randomly screaming about how the author is horrible at his job, anyone want to address the 25th ranked pass defense? The holes at safety? Losing Mike Nolan? Switching systems to one our players arent best suited for? No?

    Ok, Walker sucks!

    The Bills already had the best safety duo in the division. They probably have one of the best defense tackle duo's in the league. They brought in a force of a defensive end. Even if they get even modest results from top 10 picked corner, and another highly drafted corner on the other side, they should have a tough defense. I see no sin by declaring us third.
    At the moment, we are NOT a more talented team than we were a year ago. People need to get used to that.

    Until Miami is able to create more turnovers our defense can't be considered elite imo...

    Defensive Turnovers:

    Patriots: 34 (+17 in turnover differential)
    Jets: 31 (-3)
    Bills: 31 (+1)
    Dolphins: 19 (-6)

    They are a bottom 10 defense, but they look worse than they should because the offenses they face get more chances than average (due to Pats offense scoring so much and so quickly).

    The next time James Walker writes something positive about the Fins, it will be the first.
