I think from a philosophical standpoint, our approach to defense has been flawed in some ways.
We built our defense outside in. Heavy emphasis on DEs and CBs. In a passing league, this makes sense.
However, we have pretty much completely ignored the middle of the defense. No linebackers, no DTs. I have no problem with the outside in approach, but there has to be SOME investment inside.
Our lack of investment to the middle of our defense is why we are such a poor tackling defense, and why we're not good against the run.

Carmelo Anthony is a better and more productive player than Kevin Durant
