    On guaranteed run or short pass/screen plays that were telegraphed for us we got burned over and over and over. Made Blount look like Lynch.

    It has been two games that this defense has been in a position to win or tie the game and they failed. So now what? What can they do differently? I honestly don't know, so I will answer it this way; they are dog-tired at this point in the game, and they can partially blame themselves. They can't get off the field and 2nd or 3rd and longs show more vulnerability.

    i think its a work in progress. six of eleven starters on defense are new this year. it seems to me we are just blowing assignments left and right and our tackling sucks. It should get better but i hope it doesnt take too long

    Hands down we have the worst LB unit in the league. That's years of neglect. Idk what made the decision makers believe we could get by with a unit full of Special Team LBs.

    Yep, it's hard to have a winning team when you have any units that are "worst in the league" much harder when you have multiple units vying for that honor.

    Your good players will not be successful in the wins department in that situation.
