Like Vilma just said in his press conference. Preseason games are different than regular season games, vanilla defenses against vanilla offenses. they don't game-plan for these teams.

With that said, he says they still have to work on the early missed tackles, but they were better than last week...

Our D just doesn't set the edge or contain very well at all. Just an observation.

Yep, every big play was a bounce outside. They made a lot of out perimeter defenders look bad. I saw a whole lot of arm tackles and whiffs.

Well, the vanilla first string defense has gotten it's ass kicked two weeks in a row now. Sugar coat it how you want, they have sucked

Gotta agree somewhat. Vanilla is no excuse for those pathetic arm tackles.

They allowed 5.3 yards per attempt tonight ... that won't cut it.... unless they get to huge leads like they did en route to the SB two years ago.
