Michael Del Zotto played 77.

Yes, that defense needed to play that system. No, this defense does not.
Del Zotto was very good that year though. But yeah this D is better and deeper, IMO. It's just that people think of that team as amazing defensively and you still see posts saying this D is mediocre. Finished 0.1 goals a game more.
