Nolan WAS a great DC. I think you will find out this week how much we lost when he left. This defense has a lot of holes that offenses will start to find. Sanchez is terrible but I bet he throws for 300 vs this defense. Our back 7 is as bad as there is in the league. Nolan was great at hiding our weaknesses even with the low level of talent we had on defense. I don't think we will be able to do that this year vs division teams.
Mike Nolan runs a 3-4 defense - always has, always will
Joe Philbin runs a 4-3 defense
I wouldnt go that far. I mean granted we likely wont get any INT's, but him throwing for 300 against any defense is an incredible feat
