over a 60 minute time frame, the rush have the best defense but if you were not watching, and few do in georgia, one of the better if not the best shut down defenses in crunch time are the georgia swarm. during the regular season, the swarm gave up one more goal than the rush did so what do i look for? defense when it matters. i look at 4th quarter defense and the swarm gave up 10 fewer goals in the final time frame. everybody says offense, offense and offense but the defense, in front of a resurging mike poulin, is almost just as good without the headlines. crepsinek, ranagan, belisle, sellars, and stouros may not be the most physical group but do they have quick sticks and feet. you couple that with the a transition unit that can play on the back end with macintosh, white, cole, tuuton, noble and oconnor, that deserves some props. i love watching their offense but i have complete respect for their defense.
