    3-4 defense, not sure what that involves, but we cant get no pass rush, other teams do, with blitzes, but we cant,

    It just amazes me that we are the only team in the NFL that gets blocked one on one, and while our QB is running for his life we can't get near the QB! IT REALLY IS AMAZING!

    I voted offensive line because I think if we had a dominant one, it would make our defense better by:

    1) Increasing energy on the sidelines when we moved down the field and scored TDs.

    2) Giving them more time to get some of their energy back on the sidelines instead of our 3 and outs.

    3) I think other offenses would have to play our defense differently if they knew we could hang about 30+ points a game. They'd take more chances instead of the dinking and dunking stuff that's killing us now.

    A good O-line and the game is much closer and maybe we pull out a win. Obviously there is a very good argument for a different coordinator who can actually teach and use stunts and twists to pressure the defense.

    Lack of a pass rush.

    Our guys couldn't sack Drew Bledsoe.

    I'd have to say Zimmer is the main culprit right now. I say this, because I can't believe our players on defense can be THIS BAD. Also, our pass rush has been a problem ever since he's been the DC and even back when he was just a secondary coach.

    Now, we got some big and talented guys up front in Spears, Ferguson and Canty and speed at OLB in Ware and Burnett...yet there still is a problem getting a consistent pass rush. There's good young talent at ILB as well, in James, Ayodele and Carpenter and yet they look lost most of the time. Our secondary should be solid with Newman, Henry, Williams and Watkins, but they never seem to be in good position deep or over the middle to make a play on the ball.


    I look at Chicago's defense and I can't see why our players, can't play like their's or even Baltimore's....the talent is there IMO.

    Looks like coaching is bearing the brunt of our December debacle. Apparently, the groceries are there, but the chefs are inadequate to develop the recipe and cook the meal.

    For some reason our D is lacking confidence. That coupled with some players trying to cover for our weak spots. It's just not a good thing.

    Of the list, I'd say D talent. Specifically we have no pass rush.

    The REAL single biggest problem: they are total strangers to playoff intensity. That goes for offense, defense, and st's.

    D-coordinator. No team with this many high draft picks on defense should have this much trouble getting to the QB.

    bingo.

    romo was getting mauled right arounn when TO dropped yet another perfectly thrown TD in the breadbasket changing the ENTIRE game and stats.

    it was absurd, as if they just wanted to go home for xmas dinner.

    Tied between D coord and OLine.

    We got 3 Lombardis under his watch, he's clearly interested in putting a competitive product on the field, and he doesn't mind spending money in the process. We could do A LOT worse.

    By the way, that's a hell of a lot more than you've ever done. Go back to listening to Gallowaste.
