    I mean, nothing lost to bring the man in and have a discussion.
    Everyone knows that Mara only acts when a thread reaches 500 posts.

    I dont get the belief on this board that if u play alot of Tampa 2 or heavy zone coverage u cant be physical and cant be a good defense.

    No, but you need the players. And if you don't have the players, then you adapt. The more I think about it, the more I realize either my expectations of a defensive co-ordinator are too high or there just aren't that many good ones around. They were saying the same thing about Spags - that he didn't have the personnel. So that also means he had issues adapting.

    But seriously. Being a co-ordinator isn't a flow chart. You should be able to change it up based on the players you have no? Your speciality might be the cover 2, but surely you know enough to throw in a wrinkle here and there or just keep on trying things until you find stuff that works.

    This whole bit about a couple players not playing well or all of a sudden getting healthy, and we become a top 5 defense from a bottom 5 defense doesn't sit well with me one bit. Putting together a defense isn't like putting together an engine. If you're missing a piece, it doesn't just break.

    Fewell came in here and at his first press conference he told us what defense he was going to run and admitted that a lot of people might not like it. Well as far as I'm concerned he was correct, I don't like it. I have never enjoyed my team sitting back and letting the opposing offense dictate the flow of the game and how my team was going to handle it. I know a lot of people on here like Fewell and are satisfied with his defense and I mean no disrespect to how they feel. Fewell said his defense would give up a lot of yards and he was right...

    I agree 100%! I think that Strahan retiring had a bigger impact on the D than Spags leaving!
    Doesn't logic dictate that he should have been just as successful anywhere he went if he was truly the difference between a good and bad D?

    I might not apply that to his time at St. Louis, but certainly would for the NO job
