Sean benches Sterling Moore (now injured) for an entire game #1 when we could have used his vet leadership, Crawley is a healthy scratch in two games, Kenny Vacarro not knowing why he's been benched on a play, Adrian Peterson has been rarely used in the run game, DA defensive game plan in question, etc.

I don't think we need to see 8 more games before saying Dennis Allen is the wrong man for the DC job.

We gave up SA after he led in tackles with his stellar rookie season. We didn't see a decline in his performance the following year, we seen coaches decide not to play him and switch him to a different position. The only good thing coming from this trade is that I get a chance to see if those rumors are true about his unable to learn a defense and perform.

What system does Miami play on defence?

4-3 ... Suh and Wake are still arriving with bad intentions. We'll be challenged in this one.

I still would love to see Klien at MLB more if we can find SLB
Anzalone being a rookie is supposed to help me ignore the fact that he's been a liability in coverage

I dont think we need to see another snap to realize that....He's not going to turn anything around defensively, at least not here

The Saints defense is a liability in coverage.

Anyone trying to cover Gronk is a liability in coverage.

AG,
We get it with Gronk. He's a beast, arguably the best in the NFL and has been for a while however that Saints defense has been a liability for years.

We gave up over 470 yards of offense to the Vikings in Week 1. Week 2, we gave up over 500 yards of offense to the Pats in the dome. Dennis Allen defense is giving up over 50% conversions on 3rd downs (that's the equivalent of 1 out of 9 drives), while allowing points on 2/3rds of possessions. That's flat out awful & unheard of. We still have Cam, Stafford & Rodgers who are good to elite quarterbacks.

I'm as optimistic as the next man but we have serious issues on defense & a very unkind schedule with QB's capable of embarrassing us (see Bradford and Brady), even Jay Cutler.
