    JPP, Tuck, and Osi were nowhere near their performance in 2011.
    Webster regressed (hopefully it is a one year problem, he also got burned on some sensational catches where his coverage was there).
    KP was injured much of the year.
    T2 was knocked out for the season.
    Marvin Austin never showed up this year.
    Canty was hurt much of the year.
    Keith Rivers didn't have the impact that Reese was hoping for when he signed him.
    Boley faded a bit this season.

    Given all that, it's hard to lay it all on Fewell......however, I'll criticize him for not blitzing more when it was clear the 4 man rush wasn't as effective this season. He didn't rotate his DL as much as he should have.

    Fewell deserves credit for 2011, and criticism for 2012.....hopefully he'll be his own toughest critic, and get stuff turned around in 2013.....but it might need some new faces, too.

    I was reading the post about Corey Webster's numbers being down from last season, and, as you wrote, Osi and Tuck were MIA, etc.

    We see everything after the fact. Going into the season, who would have said all of the things you point out would have come to pass? Fewell, and all coaches, have to play the cards they're dealt.

    With all that went wrong this season, I still believe we are closer to making another run than it appears.

    LOL I think Eli wants him here and, if I'm right, here he stays.

    Here is a suggestion why dont you send all our lbers to LT to get some advice.

    And send our corners to seek Mark Collins, Phillipi Sparks etc advice.
    How is that different than any employer arranging for an employee to improve their skills outside the walls of the organization?

    Hell, teachers in NYS are required by law to seek professional development outside of the school to keep their teaching certifications.

    Oh wait, that wasn't Fewell, that was the players. This year? It was the DC not the players.
    That is true, but he still had a bottom 5 defense in the regular season.

    HELLO 31 st ranked Defense.

    Do none of you fans remember this franchise was known for Defense. Remember LT , Carson and Banks etc and the old days ???? Well what happened to it.

    Cant stop the run I mean 3rd string RBs had career days vs our once proud defenses.

    How many 200 yard rushers we allowed ?

    Yes lets bring him back cant wait till next season...
    We ranted about that over a week ago after we found out Fewell had quietly been given an extension! If you go back a little bit to older posts, believe me, you'll find all the complaining about Fewell that your little heart desires.

    After we were illiminated from making the playoffs, Antonio Pierce said we should find another DC. I believe he still has a good gist of whats going on in the locker room, and I believe most of the players feel the same way as AP.
