Our defense in 2010 was actually pretty damn good. Less yards and points, but also less opportunistic compared to 2011. I believe we were 4th in total defense for the 2010 season.
we actaully started to play bad on defense after the bye week that year. When we played Seattle at home that year, they hit a lot of big plays and really moved the ball with ease for the most part. That rematch in ATL was the best effort by the defense after the bye.
but I know what you mean for the most part. I'll never forget how well the D played in that Pittsburgh game on Halloween. Our secondary was depleted with injuries but they still held the Steelers to just 10 points.
