Re: Our Defense

Our Defence (if that's what you want to call it!) is absolutely sad! We gave up a ton of 40+ yard plays and didn't have a clue how to adjust. I'm going to be rooting for the Saints come whatever, but this is shaping up to be a long season. We can't continually rely on the Offense to outscore what our D gives up! The game today was painful to watch!!

Re: Our Defense

There is no adjustment for an inferior front 7.

We need DEFENSE - it is that simple

1) Can't stop anyone - 68 points in two games

2) Can't generate many turnovers

3) Offense always in catchup mode


We are seeing a chain reaction meltdown -
A) Defense blows
B) Brees thinks he has to do it all
C) Other team edges ahead
D) We pass 4 out of 5 down and the other team knows it
E) Dropped passed or other mistakes put our D back on the field
F) Rinse, lather, repeat and lose



It would not matter if Payton, Lombardi and Bellichek all rolled into one were the coach right now. We are not losing because of a bad challenge, a bad overall gameplan (unless you want to blame Spags' D gameplan), or a missed timeout.

We fundamentally blow at defense. Go find 11 undrafted FA rookies and start them - I don't think it would look any worse and would cost the team a hell of a lot less!

Re: Our Defense

You guys defense is great should be top 5 by the end of the season. I put my trust in Spags!

Re: We need DEFENSE - it is that simple

Ok I have listened to a lot of opinions about our defense and cant say any of them are entirely wrong.

Here is my question... What "if" Greg Williams, knew all of this and ran the Defense the way he ran the defense because that was the only way it would work?

Obviously what we are trying is not working very well thus far. I am not completely sure our offense can hold up long enough to allow the Defense to catch up...

We need to be able to run more to take some wear and tare off of Drew. He had another near 50 attempt game.

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.

Re: We need DEFENSE - it is that simple

I saw our DE's hesitate while rushing in order to keep from getting burned outside by the two most elusive running QB's in the league.

I doubt they're that scared of Ryan, Cassell, Freeman etc...
