THE DEFENSE

in your best and honest opinions about whats going on and what we need to fix the dam thing.
i'm going to start off and say stop the profolic blitzing schemes and stay more in common 4-3 packages. blitz vilma more he'd be more unseen step up the debacks on supposidly man to man coverage so they can at least try to throw off the timing route. does anyone notice the striping technics is out the window. okay next.

Get up on the line of scrimmage and bump your guy at the snap to throw off the timming of their routes.

...another defense thread.

LOL.

Look you don't want to simplify things at all. What you need to do is teach and coach up the fundamentals. You have some guys in position to make a play and they miss it. Robinson is the only one I trust making a tackle right now. The problem is planning and play calling the problem is the guys aren't doing the fundamentals such as tackling.

Another reason we aren't getting a pass rush... fundamentals of our D guys not using their hand technics in hand to hand combat and getting in there.

Its all in the coaching if they actually realize they have to coach the guys in these areas we'd be better off.

I'd like to see more bump and run. Likely get burned just as much but there's a greater chance of a bad throw or tip ball up for grabs and right now we can't win without a turnover. And the stripping the ball, we need to get away from that and concentrate on tackling. It was a gimmick that worked well for a while. If you watch teams now there is more focus on holding on to the ball around the Saints.

absolutely! GREAT point on going for the strip a little too much. i totally agree that when offenses are gearing up to face us, they're coaches are drilling them on ball security because thats something greg williams had made known he's going to have his players go for every game.

just like the coaches always know our db's will jump the routes. just watch film of hasselbeck and the seahawks taking advantage of this with pumpfakes in the playoff game last season.

Whatever Sean (a tiger can't change his stripes) Rogers and Abreyou ( I miss Patrick Willis) Franklin were supposed to be - i haven't seen since the niners preseason game.

Is Will Smith still suspended? I don't see him.

Shanle needs a rascal to reach the sidelines.

I something wrong with Porter? Why is Jenkins always cheating to his side of the field?

Something tells me Ellis and Rogers aren't gelling - and they won't.

Our two new defensive tackles are out of shape and don't have any stamina. They have a rotation but it's not enough. They may be too old to condition before they just wear out. Ellis does fine.......he's just not elite. We let another opportunity for an upgrade slip away. from the DT's

More pressure up front, would be a domino effect, for the better, for every level of our defense..... They need to get to the qb, without blitzing every down.
