    Did our defense blitz against the 9ners and...

    if they did, how many times they did it. Also who thinks the Giant's defense needs to blitz and what percent they should blitz if you do think they should blitz?

    Yes. I don't remember the exact count, but I heard yesterday they were very successful when sending 5 or more on Sunday.

    Define blitz first. Is it sending more than 4 players? What about a zone blitz with only 4 rushers but a defensive lineman dropping in coverage instead?

    And are we talking only against the pass? Or run blitz?

    if you're not getting front 4 pressure, the solution isn't blitzing, unless you've got very talented blitzers who can make a difference. we don't

    our front 4 was giving them fits, so they try to doubling up/chipping guys, when you blitz it confuses blocking assignments and forces more one on one situations.

    If a front 4 is getting man handled, bringing blitzers could help, or it could be a huge advantage for the offense because it doesn't necessarily pressure the QB and takes guys out of coverage.

    our defense will live and die based on what pressure our front 4 can bring.

    there looked like there was alot of coverage sacks sunday, but that's just from memory.

    I usually define "blitz" as a LB or DB rushing the passer (which includes zone blitz).

    And yes, PF did blitz a bit. It's the difference between night and day for our defense when they blitz. More teams are keeping tight ends and RB in to block (part of why we didn't hear vernon davis' name that much last week), which foils our 4-man front easily. But when more guys are kept in to block, it's the responsibility of the defense to realize that and send more rushers. There's always an 11 on 10 advantage since the QB himself can't block. Max protect means fewer passing targets to worry about covering.

    I'm hoping Stevie Brown becomes one of THOSE blitzers

    They blitzed and actually didn't get there most of the time or at least the times I notice them sending 5-6 guys.......but the back end coverage was GREAT all day......that and Smith couldn't hit the broad side of a bar on Sunday.

    A blitz is a blitz right so how many blitzes the defense came with against the 49ers?

    most every fan thinks good defense is blitzing on almost every down, its not, you can open your self up for those quick passes and bubble screens.
