From what I recall, the Rams defense was pretty bad in the 1st half of games, but really played will in the 2nd half - which I found encouraging.
But yeah, their defense was a bit disappointing - but not unexpected, considering they went from a 4-3 to a 3-4.
I thought the same thing....Wade did a terrific job making adjustments at half time. I was so used to the Rams playing worse in the 2nd half that it was refreshing and I also made a couple of mentions of that.
Run defense needs to improve we can all agree. But partial examining of stats tells partial stories. How many points (avg) does a defense give up per game? (esp. point differential with the offense). Turnovers/turnover margin? And yes, in-game adjustments for our defense (did we look better as the game got down to crunch?). Again, we also gave up quite a few explosion plays via our run defense, but late in games seemed a kinda different story, etc.
REGARDLESS, look at what we've added to the D so far this off season anyway…
