Unfortunately, things weren't as sterling on the other side of the ball, as an aging defense finished 18th in the league in yardage and points allowed, its worst rankings since the days of Neil O'Donnell -- 1991 to be exact.  The underachievement led to a major overhaul, beginning within the departure...
