This was a tough decision, one I really gave some thought about. The defense had some bright spots during the game. John Bonney forced a fumble and Broderick Washington had a great sack. But the overall performance was so bad, and no one really was a true impact player.
Every defensive player made as many mistakes as big plays, and watching it live I did not see anyone who took over the defense. For me, a defensive player of the week should change the game defensively.
But Ole Miss essentially scored at will. Even when plays were made, they were few and far between.
I believe in this team, I am not quitting on our season. I know next week someone will go out and be a star on defense. I hope to see improvement in the 806D.
Do you think someone earned the honor? Let me know in the comments!
