    If the D line this season isn't proving how absolutely worthless BJ Raji was to this defense, nothing will.

    We get Mike Pennel and Demetri Goodson back after their four game suspensions this week, if that makes any difference.

    The run defense has been nothing short of amazing.

    But, but, but....he was OCCUPYING BLOCKERS!!!

    I do find it amazing that the front seven has been terrific this year while the secondary has been a disappointment. Who saw that coming?

    The D line didn't look as good last year when Raji was out. I would attribute the improvement this year to better Linebacker play as well. Perry has been a beast on the outside, and the addition of Martinez in the middle along with better play from Thompson has really made a difference. Additionally, while he was great last year, Daniels seems to have found a new level of greatness this year.

    I don't recall at all the D line looking worse when Raji was out, but I do agree that improved ILB play has helped.

    And no doubt Daniels is a monster. It's a good thing they already locked him up. It's great to see a guy not only not get complacent after signing a big contract, but actually elevate his game.
