Shouldve hired Del Rio

Now I'm convinced we should've hired Del Rio instead of Spagnola. This D looks awful - and against a talented, yet rookie QB.

Re: Shouldve hired Del Rio

one of the biggest issues I see is lack of adjustment throughout the game, like keeping RGIII in the pocket instead of rolling out all the time.

That should be a text book adjustment.

Just no pressure at all! I mean if our veterans don't want to generate pressure it's time to put our nasty players in. Akeem Hicks, Tez Wilson (who has the punt block) and junior gallett.

Defense? Really?

Our high powered offense has scored 10 points on the skins, and you wanna blame the defense?

Wow!

OUR OFFENSE JUST GOT OWNED BY JIM HASLETT'S DEFENSE!

Haslett always was a good D-coordinator. Not a good HC thou.

Sorry Bro - but despite our lethargic offense, our D is still stinking it up, and I havent seen anything special from Spagnola throughout preseason amd now also in our first regular season game to make me feel any differently Spagnola benefited from some exceptionally talented pro bowl D lineman in NY and StL. We dont have that here. He's doing nothing scheme-wise to out any pressure on the RG3

Oh yeah. I blame the defense. We couldn't stop a rookie QB all day. I'm not saying the offense didn't suck, because clearly it did, but how many points did we surrender? Our defense sucks raccoon balls.

No one expected our defense to look great. But our offense underperformed way more than our defense did today.

How anyone can point to the defense as a reason we lost is embarrassing.

Haslett's defense owned our ass today. Our defense was about what we expected.
