Purely passrushing, they're definitely near the, if not at the top. But neither is known for their runstopping abilities. I really don't know who this is anymore. Last year it was Osi and Strahan for sure but they both had down years due to injury this year.
Freeney and Mathis get a bad rap as balanced DEs, thanks to how the coaching staff is playing them. Or was playing them, as once the 06 playoffs started they finally tweaked the defense to have the ends play the run more. I dearly hope it stays that way in 2007.
Pugnacity, testosterone, truculence, and belligerence.
I could say the same thing about New Orleans. Antonio Pierce is leagues better than any Saints' linebacker. As for the secondary, both are pretty awful. Strahan doesn't have a lot left in the tank. Meanwhile, Charles Grant, Will Smith, are both in their prime.
New Orleans' defense is already one of the worst in the league.
