Our Defense Was God Awful Today - WTF 41 pts allowed?

What a time to stink it up on defense. It might be a good thing after all ... we need mo' bettah bodies on defense. Sharper's a goner, so are some of our linebackers, and we need help on the Dline, and more depth in the backfield.

So how's the draft looking for us talent wise based on what might be available?

Maybe we should hope that Greggo takes the Denver job or any other job that comes along. We've given up too many points this season.

I agree Sharper looked bad along with Harper. I wouldn't be surprised if Sharper is gone next year, but he's not that expensive and probably still good enough to be MJ's backup. However, I don't think there's any need for wholesale changes on D. I say draft BPA and look for diamonds in the rough just like we've been doing for the last several years.

We were 19 points a game this season. I'll take that every year if offered. That's 1 touchdown and 1 field goal each half of a professional football game. Our skill sets are lacking. Pass rush/sacks lacking. Speed at linebacker lacking. Sharper's done. Harper is pretty much done. Greer and Porter need a shot in the arm. Our draft and FA should be heavily weighted on the defensive side of the ball. That 67 yarder should be the motivation and foundation for building next years defense.

I hope we keep GW. We have been a better team overall with him. Just need some upgraded players.

You win some, you lose some. Can't expect to win, when half our squad is on IR. We'll bounce back and get it next year, no doubt!

Think we kept looking for the magic in that old silk hat of GW's. Guess we should have found Frosty instead.... Injuries killed us and lackluster performances knocked us off balance. Still, no excuses, we did not bring our A game and we lost as a result.

I agree. There was overall improvement on the defensive side of the ball. Turnovers/takeaways were down, sacks were down, but we had better overall play. No doubt, next year we will be even better with GW at the helm with a few upgrades. Back to fundamental tackling would go a long long long long way.

Harper is a run-support safety, not a coverage safety. Good job by Seattle to exploit it.

Can't put it on Sharper. Injuries put the game plan in jeopardy.
