What Gives???

Of all the issues we've been seeing the past several weeks (outside of the game against that mess called the Jets)... which do you feel is the primary culprit for our defensive woes?

As a fan, it seems as if this has become a systemic issue, so my initial thought is to place the blame here on "Play Calling/Coaches/Scheme"... I'd like to start hearing what everyone else sees as the primary problem - knowing, of course, that it's a combination of all of the above. Of course, I only see the results... I can't tell if Player A should be *here*, rather than *there*, in given coverages, but missed a read, etc... all I know is that we've been seeing receivers running around in acres of open grass and we're hardly even stopping the run anymore and I don't know why!

Follow up question - can anyone explain approximately how the roles of Pete Carroll, Gus Bradley and KJ lay out as it relates to the defensive play calls? Does Gus call the plays with Pete's veto... and KJ has responsibility to call very specific changes when he reads something? How does that all play out?

It comes to the scheme. We just don't have key cogs, especially a LB that can rush the passer. Pete has done a good job at recognising what isn't working, so hopefully Pete can bring in more players to rush the passer.

More than anything these are mental breakdowns. We're a completely different team in the 4th quarter. It's almost like we play scared.

Maybe we need a 4th quarter hero. Tebow, anyone? Wink
