This team is getting painful to watch. Our defense is only slightly better than last year. We need to tear it down and start it again. We can't stop the run!!!!!!! (OK,Hill WAS a good pick). Wroten and Victor A. might end up good but we can't stop jack!!!!!!!!!!!! What is Kennedy doing??? Chillar? Is Little really that good?????Lets get some defense in this next draft. The other teams draft good D linemen and LB's...WHY CAN'T WE???

So what about Bartell, Carter, Atogwe, Fisher, Butler? What the heck are they doing?
Don't get me wrong. I have been watching/rooting since 1967! I just can't keep up the brave, optimistic face!!! They really have not had a decent defense since the 70's..Think about it and tell me if I'm wrong!!!

Is it Georgia F's tight purse-strings still?

And KC's defense sucks even worse and we couldn't beat them in our own crib??????????????????????????/ Mad

9th in the NFL in total defense. I would say it doesn't suck as bad. Great offenses can move the ball on any Defense and we have proven that in past years.

Yea, our defense needs a complete overhaul. Not a lot of the guys on our defense should be starters in this league.

You got that right
Why did we let Bly and Fletcher go? Wistrom won't invite comparisons with Deacon Jones but he was adequate. Witherspoon seems like the real deal though. We are wasting a pretty good offense, albeit one that can't score when we really need it, like today. I wish Barron would stop making false starts! Bulger has the "pretty" stats but we can't put anyone away. Huard's were mediocre. I still can't believe we lost at home with that guy starting.
For example..You can put your grandma on New England's defensive line and she would get 10 sacks at least.

I say we keep Spoon, Pisa, Hill, Little, Brown, and Glover.

But totally rebuilt the rest of our defense. I think our defense could be better, but we just haven't lived up to the potential that I thought we could have.

Wouldn't it have been easier to just say get rid of Kennedy and Atogwe? Wink

Really at this point I don't what to think. Who's to blame? Bad players?Bad coaching? Bad management? I'm not sure but we have reshuffled alot of guys but really to no avail. The biggest thing that I don't understand is why Fisher is still playing, and why in the world does Atogwe take such horrible angles? The guy graduated from Stanford so he should know something about Math. If a guy is running straight at a 180 degree angle... Then why the heck does he take a 20 degree angle and run out of bounds?! He has another game to prove to me that he can make it in this league because the last few games he has been the one of the worst players I have ever seen play the game.

Well lets see if we can pull ourselves together because I have to believe that we aren't going to win either of the next 2 games if we can't stop the darn run. Yes the Defense is slightly better, but that isn't saying much... if anything at all

Is Glover doing anything? Also we gotta stop blitzing all the time! It backfires too often. Check out Gregg Easterbrook on Tuesday Morning Quarterback. He makes a good case for not blitzing so often. I think Coakley and Glover are washed up. I think Pisa not being there has hurt.
I miss Faulk's presence overall.

the reason i said Glover is because he is a great mentor at least for the younger DTs like Wroten and future DTs

Yeah Glover is probably a good mentor. BTW, I wasn't trying to bag on you about Glover. I am just frustrated at the lack of real improvement on D that spoils a fairly good offense.

while i dont hope that we are drafting early come april, i do think that our first rounder ABSOLUTELY MUST be spent on a gamebreaking defender no matter what the situation is! hopefully somebody can fall to us or we could trade up for someone in the mold of a Laron Landry, Leon Hall, Paul Posluzny, Gaines Adams/Quentin Moses, etc.

A thing we must remember is that if we lose kevin curtis to free-agency we will really be hurting at wide-reciever because issac is getting old and holt wont be there forever, just something to think about
