These are all Dennis Allens guys. I hold the Coordinators responsible and give credit to them more than most. The FO does not go out and just hire coaches nor add players without a huge amount of approval from the those Coordinators that have to work with them. This includes the draft.

Allen is far from done with rebuilding the mess Ryan left behind. Adding players and getting players head screwed on straight takes time.

Year 3 will be adding a few additional key pieces and improving the bench. Expect improvement on defense but more so in special teams play.

Year 4 should be the hallmark years for DA. Fine tuning time

Year 5 is the hitting on all cylinders year.

Re: Dennis Allen Doesn't Suck

I am glad we waited on DA and not fire him as we did the other coaches. I think a lesson to be learned here is have a plan to improve the areas that needed improving. Better talent in key areas. Have a plan. Stick with it.

The other coaches didn't seem to have a plan and didn't seem to have an answer.

Re: Dennis Allen Doesn't Suck

Allen might be part of the solution but i think glenn deserves more credit. He has that secondary playing way better than before. Our pass rush still isnt great but ive seen a good bit of coverage sacks this year cause the secondary is blanketing receivers alot better than before. Also we are finally picking ball off way more from the past cpl of years. I guess thats whats happens when you have a multi time pro bowl corner as your secondary coach instead of so joe blow like mcgriff.

It is also addition by subtraction.
Not that matters in the grand scheme, but I will never forgive Payton for the wasted years he created by keeping his buddies around here.

I was hoping for something a little quicker than that time frame.

Mine are Max time frames

I give DA the same time frame I give rookies to earn that new contract. 4 to 5 years.
At 3 I give that gel time 12 games
At 4 I will be impatient.
At 5 I will be ballistic.

I am expecting big things going into December this year. The word unit will apply to the defense and needs will be easy to see. Miss assignments will be minimized. Staying health will govern it all I know.
