I doubt they're that scared of Ryan, Cassell, Freeman etc...
I have noticed that when RG or Cam would hold the ball an extra second, or if it was a good fake we fell apart.

I also noticed that our Corners are not playing the ball at any time... they are playing the player on all of those long catches. When they played the ball there were 3-4 dropped interceptions.

Re: Our Defense

I predict our defense will rank 33 after week 16.

If our pass rush doesn't improve, we won't be that good.

Re: Our Defense

The best defence is clock control, we need to run the ball more to control the clock and help drew out. We'll see what spags can do, hopefully he can get everyone in line and pick up the defence. I imagine that against a more conventional offence (i.e. not newton and rg3 in the backfield) they can start getting some flow going and maybe get some confidence back. It's only week 2, hopefully we can smash KC and get some good vibes flowing on defence and scoop some wins before Vitt takes over.

Re: Our Defense

How long is spags hired for?

If its not fixed by game 8, I wouldn't be comfortable keeping this D for a second season

Re: Our Defense

come on guys, with the lack of contact in practice because of the new CBA, how can you judge Spags defense after 2 weeks? It's going to take a few games and as far as always playing from behind, it's not all on the D. We were up 7-0 and the D got the ball back to us and Drew throws an ill advised pass and all of a sudden it's 7-7. Then 2 of our best receivers each drop what would have been a TD and we have to settle for 3. There's plenty of blame to go around and it's going to get better. Stop all the panic. We sound like failcons fans.

Their players work under the same CBA as ours.
We gave up almost 500 yards...we've given up over 900 yards and 75 points in 2 games.

Sure it's going to "get better"..It can't get worse...
how many have new DC with different scheme then what you played the last 3 years?
