Re: Dennis Allen

The problem is we don't have the right players to run 4-3 and Allen is a 4-3 coach.... I'm not sure whats going to be done about that.

Re: Dennis Allen

I'm sure he's smart enough to know what he can or can't do with the players he has. I'm hoping we will see improvement throughout the remainder of the season.

Re: Dennis Allen

We kinda have LBers for a 3-4, yet we kinda have D-lineman for a 4-3.

And...go. It's your show, Mr. Allen.
