Allowing a 6.3 average per rush and a 7.3 average per play isn't really encouraging to me. Granted the last 2 plays were sweet, alloing the Falcons to drive the entire length of the field as fast as they did was a shadow of last year's D. We'll take the win but the D has a lot of improving to do still.

Only giving up 17 to Atlanta is pretty damn impressive. Considering when we usually play the scores are both at least in the upper 20s. I saw all kinds of encouraging play, and if you look at it objectively, the defense is what kept us in this game because the offense was all kinda of out of whack at times. Which I expect to get only get better which will allow the defense to get opposing offenses in more one dimensional looks
