    I shudder to think what will happen to this defense with their 2 best linebackers, Lee and Durant, out.

    My thoughts exactly...funny how a 70 year old that couldn;t stop anyone in the PAC 12 can't stop NFL offenses...hmm...(good job Jerruh)

    where are all the excuse makers that claimed the turnovers we were getting mattered more than all the yards and points and first downs we were giving up?

    I mean, turnovers do make up for a lot. But it has to be noticed that when they've faced top-tier QBs like Manning and Brees the turnovers don't occur at all. That tells me this defense is great at forcing turnovers from average NFL players but the elite passers have this defense all figured out.

    lol. That's the only silver lining on this I suppose.

    This defense is well on its way to be the worst defense in franchise history.

    With Ware still clearly hobbled and now Lee out once again it's only going to get much, much, much worse.

    One thing I noticed on Sunday - as in regards to turnovers. It's great that the coaches teach them to strip the ball, but when you have a defender reaching in to strip the ball - by himself instead of putting the tightend on the ground, then said tightend churns along for another 1st down and tons of extra yardage ! Put the frickin guy down ! Tackle his *** first. Pissed me off so many times to see them all trying to strip the ball instead of first things first - make the tackle !!

    I shutter to think that you didn't name Carter in your list of the Cowboy's best two linebackers and think that best that I can tell -- the coaching staff feels the same way.

    Mark Ingram has played in 3 games this season rushing for 50 yards combined in them. Against Bruce Carter last week he rushed for 145 yards.

    That tells you everything you need to know about how screwed we are when we have to play Bruce Carter at middle linebacker.

    I thought it might have something to do with all those street free agents pretending to play DL.

    Just few minutes ago on Fox Football Daily they were talking about our poor defense. Jay Glazer said hiring MK was a wrong decision and that the game passed him by…Lynch tried to answer and explain that this is not true and he is still a great DC.
    Ready for the rest?

    Ok..Glazer replied right away "I've heard from players ..we don't get him..sometimes we don't know what the heck he is saying"

    If this is true…we are in deeeeeep trouble…

    :cool:

    yep, even on 3rd and 14, I say to myself, they will catch an open ball 16 yards downfield for a first down, I have no faith in the D stopping anyone

    19th 1st downs
    21st Yards / rush
    24th Time of Poss
    T-28th 3rd down conversions
    28th Rushing / game
    31st Rush attempts

    They could let us put 15 guys on d and we'd still give up at least 400 yards every game! This has to be one of the worst defenses in the nfl ever!
