The defense isn't nearly as good as the stats would indicate. It doesn't have a lot of talent, the only reason it performs week in and week out is because Zimmer is a GREAT coach.
His candidacy for a head coach is a separate matter, but ripping this guy's defense is absurd.
I'm not putting it all on his shoulders, but I'm not going to give him a pass like many fans will.
