I guess the question is to me...what happened to our secondary? I Jenkins and Harper were supposed to be badass. Now we are awful. Can we really blame the decline on the defense side of the ball all on the line or LB's???
The Line and LB's held chris johnson to 23 yards on 11 carries, thats an achievement for themselves

The problem lies in the secondary, aswell as Patrick Robinson being part of the problem, GW is the other part of it - He makes the defense too complicated, i've noticed numerous times, some DB's in man coverage and others in zone - theres a mixup somewhere and that leaves the WR's running free.

Pat robinson better get his act together - He's been burned nearly every week of the season

Oh Joy my favorite subject!!!

Robinson is the weak link in our secondary but the lack of Sharper and his leadership skills really hurts us as the single most factor in the secondary.

The real problem that everyone misses is our OLBs and DE's. Our LB's are slow can't cover nor can blitz effectively. Our DE's can't consistantly contain nor has speed enough to get to the QB. Our secondary is designed to jump the routes to get those turnovers however if we don't get a pass rush... we'll bet burned when the DB's jump routes because the QB has time to wait and wait and see how the DB's react.

You get a pass rush you'll get turn overs plain and simple. Our draft picks with our DE's suck. We snagged the wrong DE's it was no secret these guys were not pass rushers nor speedy.
