.. just as a poor DC and poor defense would with virtually any HC.
A great defense gets you to the SB. Especially if it is a defense that can create takeaways.
I would totally get rid of all the current defensive coaches. d-line, lb's, d-backs all took a major step backwards.
it wasnt trash it actually produced takeaways at critical times and played well in the fourth quarters.
on the offense Travis frederick last week on his radio show said the offense was not good enough this year and situationally they hurt the team because they were bad in important situations and that in turn hurt the defense a lot.
LOL....our defense was top 10 we lost 8 games mostly cause we couldn't score enough POINTS!!!
Think the offense is responsible for scoring points?????
Wade Phillips just got released. Just saying. First time poster long time lerker.
I think J Johnson of Eagles D fame was that old when he ran things. Being an " old codger" I know some of us old dogs can still hunt.
Maybe Dom still has it .....
If not get a proven attacker...
stats showed we had a top offense as well. stats are ok in baseball, but not football.
Welcome, and no flaming for the suggestion. Good healthy discussion is what we are all about, nice to have you aboard
Totally agree. I would throw ST's in there, too, but defense is the one that matters most.
You've forgotten the wonderful Rob Ryan years. That was terrible.
Go back to lurking
Just kidding, welcome
Lol. I didn't say I wanted him. Was just breaking the news. Haha.
Do you guys think Haslett would be in play as DC or what is our best options ?
But you never wanna have to chase other teams in points. Defense is what makes a championship team.
How many times has our team had to score 30+ points in order to win? When your defense cannot give the offense a chance, by stopping opponents when they should, then the offense has to change their ways and play not to what makes them great. For example: when an opponent is ahead by couple touchdowns or it gets late in the game, you have to back away from your running game and put it all on the QB. Leads to interceptions and frankly is easier to defend against when the opponent knows what we are going to do.
The DC will be a challenge. It was felt he hung onto Dom Capers way too long, much like Garrett has done with Marinelli.
The special teams coach is a concern too. Both Ron Zook and Shawn Slocum were fired during his reign with the Packers.
Word is he is not maybe Nolan only time will tell.
