Part of what your saying is true,but our defense is worse now.We didn't have the personel for the 3-4 and we still dont.I'd rather have a top 5 paper defense with the problems you described then a bottom 5 paper defense with the same problems.

I tend to see it your way, although some folks on the board have shown statistically the defense now is basically as good as the average in the Williams/Blache years.

Two observations. The defense now seems to go long stretches w/o sacks or even QB pressure, which was probably the biggest complaint under the previous regimes. Although we never really waited to see how the AH/Carter/Orakpo experiment would have turned out. Personally I think Rak would have been best served at left d end where he wasn't asked to do as much in the old system.
Secondly, your observation htown that we still don't have the personal to run the 3-4 at an elite level is really the bottom line. We don't have a difference making NT. And we still need a FS regardless. A (new) d coordinator could come in next year install a 4-3 and we'd be better off than continuing down the Haslett path.

We had 40 sacks in 2009.29 last yr and 34 so far this yr so your sacks argument is an illusion.We had 17 takeaways in 09,27 last yr and 16 so far this yr.So we had more takeaways last yr,WHOOPEE,at least thats something

Plus that was TWO AND THREE QAURTERS,NOT ONE YEAR.And of course I only went back to 2009,why would I go any further? That was the yr before Shanahan got here and switched the defense

The are three more games to be played.

We added talent(RAK and AH), hence the spike in sacks to 40. We add more talent(i.e Jenkins) and play the better players(Riley), we can only further improve.

Heck, Jacksonville should not even stay in Jacksonville. Of all the NFL franchises, that is the one that i think has the least justification for its existence. If any team needs to move to LA, its the jags.

Happy for Todd Bowles to finally get his shot, no matter how temporary it might be
