    Just unacceptable.
    Unacceptable, maybe. Expected, yes. Its unrealistic to expect a DT who has been out of football for two years to be ready to start in just a couple weeks, especially when he missed most of preseason and training camp with injuries.

    Football has been very, very good to us.
    Even though 2013 was a losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    Let's make it 5 in 2014 !!!

    JPP is doing fine. He isnt getting sacks but that is because teams are using the 5th blocker to help vs him. If our other 3 guys on the dline cannot beat 1v1 matchups, and force teams to reconsider always doubling JPP, then we will continue to struggle.

    Dont blame the guy who is getting double teamed all game, JPP is ALWAYS getting chipped. Blame the other guys who are then not taking advantage of the 1v1's

    Hopefully, as our back end becomes more healthy over time(fingers crossed) we can then be secure enough in their coverage to allow us to blitz the 5th man more often, something we have done far fewer times this year than we id in the past.

    Other teams are chipping both ends all game. Its rare when they are single blocked.

    Just wait til we get Canty back, hopefully he'll be able to take care of the 1 on 1's that are available without chip blocks or extra blockers taking them on. So far Linval has been having another damned good season

    give the DEs a little credit for batting a lot of passes Sunday ... we're not getting a great push in the middle and we are facing a lot of 3 step drop quick passes, which is a way to negate outside pass rush

    we need to win more 1 v 1s, but i do now believe that we need to make some tweaks as well

    it will come together, it did last year ... now Osi is a legit question mark and Rolle is slowed by his knee, but we just gotta work thru it all ... nice to have an O that can hang 30 to 40 on opponents without even breaking a sweat though

    and, yes, Canty should help esp. if Bernard's injury lingers on ... Rocky is more suited to be the backup and part of a 3 DT rotation anyway
    Apologize to Melo 5

    the problem is our safeties and cb's. the pass rush needs time to get to the qb and with our safeties and db's, they dont have that time. qb's are throwing the ball all over them

    Would it be ok if he was from Ireland?

    A healthy Canty needs to come back to add extra pressure. The opposition also throws the ball kind of early a lot so the dbs should be ready.
