Here's a question-

Does anyone believe Wink is pulling play out of this Defense above it's talent level?

In some areas I think he is (particularly getting pressure on the QB given who we actually use), but there are also still some obvious holes (still relying on Jefferson in deep coverage, not rotating much etc)

I don't think anyone on this team is playing above their talent level, I think we're playing right about where we should be, and the guys who aren't good are getting exposed (mainly Tony Jefferson). The only area where we are still lacking is in a consistent pass rush considering the talent we have there.

Yea, the Jefferson thing is weird. It's 100% clear he's a liability in deep coverage, but he somehow keeps finding his way back there lol. Wink will commit clear tactical errors like that, and frequently getting mismatched in the middle of the field. And then unleash some pretty clever decisions like using Kenny Young on inside & outside blitzes. Making him an odd evaluation.
