should have recognized the confusion on the defensive side of the ball. I loved the comment about Fewels "Bend and Break" scheme. He was god awful. Im not a DC but Im not giving 10 yard cushions on third and 4. This was an utter embarrassment and somebody needs to pay.
Right, then maybe we should have kept Sheridan

Players played like crap. I'm not a big Fewell fan, but the players played like crap when they're not injured.
I'll take a proven top-flight DC over Fewell, but I believe that for this year that the fault lays with the players.
Our Cords exposed this year
Defense was horrible and not only pass defense but rush defense too. Basically opponents could pick there poison on us and it didnt matter. Even 3 string RBs had career days.
31st total yards ?? There should be some head crackings !.
Now if we had a good DC and he was able to change some things motivate, scheme whatever maybe he could have overcome some of our offensive shortcomings. Heck he is the Coach !!!
Take a way a couple of games vs really really bad defensive teams like ourselves and check out the numbers Saints, Bucs,Browns, Panthers, Eagles in GM2.
Dont blame Nicks injury. We have pro bowler in Cruz, and we have a lot of capable bodies out there Randel, hixon, Bennet etc I dont want to hear Nicks is the reason. You need to adapt other teams do, look at GB. your telling me minus Nicks our offense shouldnt be better then most teams in the NFL ?
Why did we struggle down the stretch. Why didnt we change our offense more ?? Why did Eli look like Eli of old and not eli of last year. We have same QB and OC for how many years now. Why does red zone offense struggle so much ?
We were not very good on both sides of the ball but yet with both cords and we are magically going to turn everything around next year ??
The whole league got better on the giants and we took a step back it seems. Where do you see us in our own division. Dont think for a second that Skins wont be better next year they will be, Dallas is solid on defense and should be more consistent and better on offense next year. We might be battling the eagles for last place if we dont get out s together.
My solution would be bring Spags back which I think he will be let go next year. Bring in a new OC which will get rid of our Low % deep down filed passing game that isnt working. Make this team more physical up front on both sides of the ball. We clearly got eaten alive up the middle of our defense. A DT priority for sure and some LBers that can run and tackle seeing we will be facing RG3 and more and more running QBs in the league.
I think the running game is actually pretty good when we actually stuck to it and committed to it.
Coughlin has already stated that there will be no coaching changes. Move on.
YES! Another thread about the DC and OC. Didn't think there would be another one today.
