That has nothing to do with it. The fact of the matter is that our defensive play last year was still amongst the worst that I have ever seen. System or no. Minny's defense as a whole is still better than ours. We have NO ONE that is like Mitchell. This year Poti has been very good, I cannot lie. de Vires has been solid as well. However, the rest have not been anything to brag about. The ADRD could be the worst defensive pairing in the league. Kasper has been nothing special and Boucard has been decent. Say what you want, but w/o Leetch, most of the defenses of other teams are simply better 1 through 6.
