So it\'s the syrup that\'s been causing all this weird behavior. I see. That explains a lot Flapjack.

Oh and concerning AB - last thing I want to do is get back into this, BUT... he\'s an average QB who is on a team loaded with weapons. He\'s a victim of circumstance - or in this case, he\'s a recipient of circumstance.

Don\'t get your panties in a wad BC, I\'m just mesing with you. Although, Flapjack may stick for a while.

Here\'s the thing I see about this years defense as compared to last years. First, Jim Haslett\'s said his main focus was to fix the run defense. I think his exact quote was: \"it doesn\'t matter or not if you can stop the pass, if you can\'t stop the run.\"

Well, last year teams attempted to run the ball on us an average of 27.4 times a game and averaged 4.5 yards per carry. This year teams are attempting 30.5 running plays against our defense for and average gain of 4.7 yards per attempt.

Clearly our run defense not only didn\'t improved, but it got slightly worse. However, there was much improvement at stopping the pass. I think the reason our pass defense improved is because of the speed that was added to the defense. They were able to break up more passes and prevent the BIG PLAYS.

I think just the fact Jim Haslett/Rick Venturi didn\'t improve our run defense(keep in mind this was the number one goal going into this season.) it\'s more than enough reason to bring in a new coaching staff. Not only was our run defense a problem going into this season, it\'s been a problem ever since the 2000 season.

I really feel like we had enough talent on defense last year and this year to have a better run defense than we have had, but Venutri scheme is holding us back in that area.

We may have improved in some areas but not overall. We still have linebackers that don’t make tackles. When they did send linebacker Sedrick Hodge on the blitz he hits like a ninny, they send a corner blitz which is most likely to be Freddie Thomas, he is just to light to lay the smack down on blitzes. We have played a lot of offenses that my mother can out run and we never blitzed. You talk about scheme. VENTURI MUST GO

Sorry I meant to say We have played a lot of offenses and my mother can out run the quarterback and we never blitzed. Just so upset at our staff I can not get it all out.

What I said is that teams are not running on us MORE than last year...
Hhhmm... so what you\'re saying is that teams DID NOT run against us more this year.

Well, last year teams attempted to run the ball on us an average of 27.4 times a game and averaged 4.5 yards per carry. This year teams are attempting 30.5 running plays against our defense for and average gain of 4.7 yards per attempt.

WhoDat --


Yes, teams are running the ball on us more this year, if you want to get technical. But, they are only running 3 more times per game. If you think that accounts for the 130 less yards our pass defense is allowing, then keep preaching that on this board. People on here start spreading false information on here without even checking to see if it\'s true, then everyone starts to believe that teams are running the ball on us more this year. I gave you the facts. What you do with \'em is up to you..
