Runs by Barkley:
Dallas goes to a Prevent Defense
I am pretty sure this is Rod's last year. I have nothing to base it on but a gut feeling. Based a few comments from them from a year ago. As well his contract is up.
Kind of looks like some numbers I posted in a thread a few days or so ago.
What was Zeke's runs?
No question Kris Richard will become the DC (unless he takes a head coaching position before Rod leaves). He brought his playbook from Seattle and meshed it with the Marinelli's which says a lot. And he owns the defensive clipboard, calling the plays already. Just a matter of time until the title is official. Might be the only thing holding it up is Rod wanting a Super Bowl ring?
There's a lot of concern...
Marinelli gets owned by the Rams in the playoffs [273 yds rushing, 40 attempts, 3 TDs] and we basically see the SAME defense vs the Giants.
The Rams killed everyone and both Dallas DTs were playing with injuries that keep most players off the field in the regular season.
I posted this in another thread, before Antwuan Woods got hurt in the 2nd Quarter Dallas was actually holding the Rams RBs slightly under their season average YPC.
Make Shawn Lee the DC. No one knows a defense like a LB.
The defense held the Bill's to 17 points and the defense actually scored a td, and a fumble recovery with 4 sacks. Cant blame the Jets defense when their offense turned the ball over to Buffalo 4 times.
I'm not really a fan of Crawford, particularly at RDE. But don't tell me that the defenders aren't told at times to engage blockers. Those blockers were going to engage *him* regardless.
Anyone being objective about the play will say that LVE is the guy who screwed up. He was the guy who was entirely free, and just picked the wrong gap.
I wouldnt blame LVE with the problems we are seeing with the defense.
In 2018, 3 defensive players were responsible for most of the sacks and QB hits.
DLaw, RGregory, and TCrawford.
The LBs on the team do not blitz much.
I was referring to a *particular* play with the post you referred to. I think it was Saqon's big run.
He's been chiefly responsible for developing DLaw, Woods, Collins, Armstrong, Gregory, and others. He's not calling plays and i am fine with him in his role.
I said this 2 years ago, so I think it's overdue. He can teach a specific thing, like tackling, and I'm fine with him being there for player development....but don't want him anywhere near the defensive game plans, schemes or strategies any longer. Those stale, unimaginative, no-deception schemes are simply too susceptible to being picked apart by a good OC and QB.
Exactly. So done with this philosophy, which puts little fear in our opponents. Not intimidating at all.
***? Was the old man on the field?
I didn't think so.
The PLAYERS screwed the pooch on that game. Even though the defense gave up all those yards on the ground, the team still had a chance to win and why didn't they? ..........
Agreed. They don't pay him just to clap, that's Garrett's job. Personally I don't like the way he picks DL, never did. I like our LBs and CBs, but the biggest problem with the defense IMO has been Marinelli's style of DL.
I don’t disagree that he should be let go but Rodgers wasn’t on one leg. That guy fakes every injury. Watch next time he is hurt he will forget the limp or whatever and then just randomly start it again.
It's actually not. That's been addressed by Bob Sturm (and referenced earlier in the thread).
Agreed. That's why I said earlier that Rod needs to be shut out of the talent evaluation/acquisition phase of the football operation.
