Might be true. But I think if we target the right guys in the draft, we can stockpile good defensive talent for fairly cheap. I think we are a few good players from being pretty elite defensively.
It really depends on our younger players improving next season, which I think they will do. I think our offense can improve drastically just by signing a few stop gap players
