Hey I'm not twisting anything, we just might have the worst d in the league. No pass rush, and no Db's. I want us to win like everyone else on this form. I'm not here to say I told you so. I'm just calling it as I see it.
I want to fix it, so like I asked before on this thread... How? how do we fix this so we can get back on track?
My answer, run the damn ball, be better in the red zone, stop DROPPING passes. That is now we fix our D.

No pass rush = no DB's

Yep. We could be 2-0 if it wasn't for that. And not just in the red zone either. Did any of our receivers not drop one today?

My point is that despite all the things you mention we were a couple of completions (read, not dropped) away from winning both of these games. If (and that's a huge if) there's one positive to take away from both games it's that as bad as we've played we were in both games till the very end.

It's hard not to be negative but I don't want to bury my head in the sand either. I just think we can still turn it around.

You could say the same thing about interceptions, missed tackles, inability to cover....etc...

I'm not "burying my head" or being "negative".
I'm being realistic and clear headed. Our defense is very VERY bad.
Yeah, very! A perfect example was that 60 + yarder that Smith put on us. The CB blew his assignment, obviously, but that's the kind of thing that can be corrected.

You get your linebackers coach/assistant coach back in week 7 who has 30+ years experience in defensive coaching, and he goes ballistic yelling and screaming in the first meeting and tears everyone on the team a new one, puts the fear of God in them, and busts out the X's and O's and makes Spags explain what the hell he has been doing the past six weeks. No seriously. We are two coaches short of every other team in the league right now. Think about that. The defense IS going to get better when Vitt comes back, and the offense will get better when Kromer can go back to focusing on coaching the O-line, like he's supposed to.

Re: Welcome To 0-2

Ellis is awful...not physical. Not impressed with Bunkley, either. Hicks, however, MOVED people and he's gonna surpass Ellis and Bunkley by the end of the year. Will Smith just should have taken the 4 games off, 'cause he's already taken 2 games off so far. But I do love Cameron Jordan and Gillette.

I am impressed with our running game today. And Hartley knocking down a +50 yarder. Our special teams were pretty good today from what I could tell.

Some good, but more bad today and last week. We can't pressure a QB for jack-piss, but WAS and CAR sure can pressure ours. We're losing on the line of scrimmage on both sides. If this don't change, I see a bad moon arisin'.

Barry you are right both lines are not getting it done. pressure up the middle and the outside in drew's face both games.
The d, I'm not saying anymore about them today. They are just bad.

Why would you want that? Our safeties are the least of our worries on defense.
