[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Cris Carter is a JOKE. : I agree with 1 - 9 for sure. Number 10 depends a great deal on the development of the defense.

Oh, I agree.
I would want no one more than BB teaching a young D how to be a good D and then watch them HOPEFULLY morph into some semblance of a very good one by December.
There is not a better defensive minded teacher anywhere than BB.
All it takes is the young guys to start to see the rewards of what he's teaching them. Once it gets addictive, watch out!
Everyone was whining like girls about their zone D against St. Louis in preseason, or how it looked against Cincy or Buffalo, and now no one is whining as much when they see Ninkovich drop back into zone and react with two INTs, or newcomer Jarrad Page in the right spot or Chung in the right spot.
I know the last two INTs were gimmes, but it's about all the people dropping into zone maintaining discipline, which is the key. The more they do it, the more they can use it strategically.
Don't look now, but the Run D is solid (Williams and Brown held to 87 yards), and that too, will improve once BB figures out the right combos.
Everyone is angry at the D, but watch the D IMPROVE with this new offense, and as the season goes.
