The Beatdown's Reasons Why The Ravens' Defense Will Be Better In 2009 Than 2008

We have all heard it time and time again.... "The Ravens D will fall off.  They lost Rex Ryan.  They lost key players in Bart Scott and Jim Leonhard who can't be replaced.  They are an aging defense.  Ray Lewis is done."

Of course, us knowledgeable guys at the Beatdown know the average fan just has no clue.  We have to disprove these falsities over and over and I think we are all getting tired of it.  So I have an idea....

Why not come up with a list of reasons why the Ravens defense will in fact be better in 2009, then 2008.  In this post you can list your ideas and expand upon some or all of them.

This way, when people question our defense, we can just link them to our post, and the facts will be clearly displayed for them.  I also think this will be a great source of information when finished, especially because there are so many smart, knowledgeable Ravens fans who post here.

I'll start us off.  My reason that our defense will be improved is our greatly upgraded secondary.(others could be regarding Ray's continued stellar play, Kelly Gregg and Landry's return, T-Good breaking out, Mattison taking less chances...)  We have depth and speed back at CB like never before in Ravens history.  I will expand on this later in the comments.

The opinions posted here are those of the administrator of this blog and his loyal readers. They are in no way official comments from the team, and should not be misconstued as such, even though he thinks he could do just as well or even a better job!
