I Just Can't Understand This

We are not just bad on Defense..we are Steve Spagnulo bad. Vikings total offense 476 yrds. Patriots total offense 566 yrds. That's 1042 yrds of offense given up in TWO games.

How can we go from so much positive in the off season and looking like we did in the preseason to this? So is it the players? I don't think for a second it is. This coaching staff is done.

Offense looks so out of whack is a shame. This whole AP thing has ruined our running game. We are to worried about touches instead of playing ball. Play calling is a yawn fest. So boring, so predictable. we are not fooling anyone anymore.

Defense is just straight lost. We can't play zone, we can't play man. What else is there? Our db's with the exception of Lattimore, look like they don't know how to cover anyone. This is just disgusting.

Time to rip it apart and start over. Need a complete house cleaning, front office and entire coaching staff need to go.

They need to take that Fkn pingpong table out the locker room and let them compete in a game of play diagnosis/recognition!

Spagnulo bad would actually be an improvement at this point.

We just allowed Tom to have the best first quarter of his career. That's pretty sad when you consider the length of Tom's tenure plus some of the horrible defenses the AFC has fielded in the 21st century.

Tony Romo was reading our coverage like a book. He'd probably unretire if someone told him he could play vs our defense every week.

Re: I Just Can't Understand This

So five Coach's were fired during the off-season.......looks' as if that didn't
solve any problems. Old man Brady was running on the field he couldn't wait
to get back in and run up his stats. It was like shooting fish in a barrel.

I said it early on. Week 1 was a must win. This team has seen a lot of defeat the past several years and they have to be getting tired of it mentally. Yes I know there are new players but that losing and desperate vibe flows through the locker room. they need to feel a win. If we can win the next two AND show improvement and cohesiveness we may just still have a shot. Lose next week and it's over .
Payton has wasted the latter half of a HOF QB career. He is the one common denominator. He needs to go.
