I would love for this defensive staff to have another year together.
We can say this coach or this coach, but we have the players now, and those players have made some mistakes in games. I mean Vonn Bell looked lost on Michigan's first TD, but had an excellent game otherwise. If Bosa isn't offsides by about half a step, the much hated (for whatever reason) Curtis Grant recovers a huge fumble.
We are not a great rush D, that is absolutely true. But we play the pass so much better this year that you had to know there was going to be a loss somewhere else. I don't know how quickly you can fix problems on a D, but I feel like sealing edges is easier than other issues, and that seems to be the problem so far this year. A few runs up the middle, but it seems we get sealed inside too often and don't get out to the edges
Also, it seems that when Bennett lays into the D, they play much better. Maybe Bennett should just do it a lot earlier?
