  • Okay, so A LOT of defenses in the league suck right now.

    But is there any way ours can improve over the next three weeks, or is this what we're going to see from here on out? And by that I mean wide open guys in the middle of the field, our secondary slow as molasses, little pressure except by JPP, big holes in the d-line to allow for big running plays, allowing teams to march down the field in under a minute, etc. If that's the case, I really wish we'd blitz more and play man-on-man. At least try it our for a little while, Fewell!

    Secondly, do we get KP back this week?

    Our defense is absolutely embarassing . . . . I would like to blame injuries, but honestly injuries didn't seem to have anything to do with it today . . ..

      The fact that all those big plays happen in the game that KP is out...shows me that this can be fixed.

      With KP back there ..I don't think we gave up 3 big pass plays all season. We gave up 3 in one game

        They should see if JPP can play CB.

        Seriously though, I have been asking what is wrong with them. No, they where never a great defense this year, but they where not this bad until a few weeks ago.

        I mean they played the Patriots very well, the Saints game was a disaster, and I thought they played ok last week and the refs didn't help. This game though, ouch. Looks like Rolle needs to stop talking and start playing. It looks like he was the one that blew that coverage when Webster let his man run by.

          The "communication" in the secondary, or should I say lack thereof, needs to get fixed and quick... Webster and Rolle ain't some scrubs that are in because of injuries.

            Really? You don't think they could have been better with TT, a more seasoned Prince, and KP?

              Good point. And that is something that is tangible and can be fixed.

              Hopefully we get KP back this week as well.

              But man, I'd really like to see more sacks! And closing those gaps in the running lane.

              Oh, and what is up with our poor tackling? I thought this was something that would be adjusted weeks ago, but we are so soft sometimes and end up giving 4+ more yards than we have to. This happened numerous times today.

                Yes with TT, but he has been out all season, so it's kind of lame to say that at this point in the season.




                Where did KP's replacement make a horrible play. It looked to me that the horrible plays were made by Ross and Rolle . . . . .




                Amakamura was out on the field, so to go back and say he would be better if he wasn't injured early in the season is a little lame too . . .

                  Im not buying into any injury excuse...most of these guys been in the same system for years.....There is no excuse for Rolle, Grant, Ross, and Webster to be having these miscommunications. This is what got Sheridan fired. Jerry Reese even said that year, that we gave up to many explosive plays on the backend of our Defense....AND ITS STILL A FREAKON PROBLEM.

                  This secondary cannot play tight man to man coverage...and they are to dumb to know what zones they are covering. I think we even pulled Tyler Sash out of the game...its getting ridicuolous. U cant blame Fewell for this...is secondary is the worse in the league.

                    Prince is out there because they have no one else. It's not lame to think that had he played 12 full games already he might have a Bette grasp of the game. Also for every bad play you see Ross make just think if that was TT. Had KP played maye he makes a difference as well.

                      Prince has really disappointed me thus far. I expected more from him, with all the hype. KP played in the NO game, didn't he? He's been involved- as has T2- in these embarrassing defensive performances. Web, Ross, Prince, Grant, and Rolle- on paper- is an impressive secondary. On the field, they suck right now and have never been consistent. They always cave at the end of games. The only thing that could save Perry's job in my opinion is a trip to the NFCCG. Anything short of that, I want him canned.

                        Lol. Prince has disappointed you? He had one practice before he was injured and just got back a few weeks ago. No OTA's, no pre season, and he is supposed to be a shut down corner already?

                        He needs experience. Even great players struggle their 1st few times out and he has not played a lot either.

                          With those names, I don't get why our secondary is so bad. They were so slow tonight and never in position to make a good play! But it *would* help if our d-line got more pressure.

                            Remedy for the D, is the offense to score 45pts a game.........but is that enough?

                              Because I'm a girl and list-maker.

                              List of improvement:

                              1. More sacks/pressure
                              2. Closing gaps in running lanes
                              3. Better tackling to save a few yards
                              4. Better communication in secondary
                              5. More speed, if possible lol, to reduce big plays against our secondary and get more interceptions
                              6. LBs need to do a better job of defending the short screens/passes
