to start the "rebuilding" process over again pretty soon. Hopefully, however, it won't take too long to rebuild. To me, at least, several trends are clear. 1. This team has problems winning in December, which is the kiss of death if you want to make it far in the playoffs, IMO. 2. Once our defensive schemes get figured out, we are unable to make necessary adjustments. 3. On offense, we have to upgrade the OL asap. As for JJ, I don't know what's wrong, but I wouldn't mind taking a RB in the 1st, if a good one is available. 4. On defense, my God, what a nightmare. Where to begin? It MUST be at DC, IMO. After that, we need one more pressure player opposite Ware. 5. In the Secondary, we need to draft a CB/Safety type. I'm not sure what's happened to our defense the last few weeks, but I refuse to believe that we're this bad. Now, I'm NOT saying we're so GOOD, but honestly, I've got to think that the players on the defensive side of the ball have lost confidence in the coaching staff and in their own abilities. Simply said, we are UNDERPERFORMING with the talent on this team. It really wouldn't surprise me that with just 1, maybe 2, players on defense (one in the secondary and one in the front 7), we can be a solid defense, if not a very good defense. My BIGGEST concern is that our poor play on defense carries over to next season - esp. the lack of confidence. One way to alleviate this concern is to change the coaching staff on that side of the ball. Start fresh. I think that will happen, esp. after today's debacle.
