Ray Horton has turned the Cleveland defense into a scary bunch of men

When the Cleveland Browns hired Ray Horton as their defensive coordinator, they were hoping that he would come in and change the enigma of the Browns defense.  The Cleveland Browns had a lot of several young pieces, and really just needed someone to put it all together.  Horton has come to town and really turned this defense into a scary bunch.  He has them 4th in the NFL for total defense, and six sacks away from being the best in the league.  Horton spoke Thursday about his defense and seemed to be happy, but would like to get some more wins.

“Would I like more wins?” he said. “Yes. Where are we at as a defense? We are the No. 4 defense in the league. We’re probably sixth in pass and No. 8 in rush. We’re six sacks away from the lead in sacks, we’re No. 1 in yards per play, we’re No. 1 in pass yards per play, we’re No. 2 in rush yards per play. Everything that we want to do statistically, we are there. Would we like more wins? Yes. But to get where you want to be you have to be a good rush defense, a good sack defense, a good pass defense. And the numbers say that we are. Since the second half of the Kansas City game we are the No. 1 team in third-down defense. We [would] probably be 14th in red zone defense since that halfway point against Kansas City. Wins are the most important thing, and that’s what we’re trying to do. But the foundation of winning is those numbers that I just gave you.”
