And I actually like Robinson as a pick, although it is early to tell. If we end up with 4 starters out of this year's draft I would be happy.Zeus wrote:
When are you going to realize that picking out the 20 bad throws this year and ignoring the 300 good ones does not make your point?
With a single person in charge he is better able to make personnel decisions that fit his vision. No whether that vision works out or not remains to be seen, but at least it is a single vision, not three.
I think that sets up just as bad of a scenario as we had before but just shifting things to a different rung on the ladder.

Couldn't agree more Singer. The problem is though we have to run this scheme. It's the most basic scheme you can run and it is doomed to die like the death of a thousand cuts.
This defense can win championships but the players have to be a perfect fit. We don't have anything close at this point.
The Tampa 2 is a defense for a team lacking talent. It's many small cuts and hope you don't bleed to death. You have to cut your opponents deeper and at this point we are using knives made of cork.I bet you could use a cool one huh Clark...Now you're talkin Eddie...

Passive defenses, no matter what they are called, will be destroyed by the better offensive minds in the NFL.
I am sorta tracking with your line of thinking. Of course in this day and age where passing is becoming more and more prominent it seems that you either build up your offense in the hopes of winning the nuclear arms race or you beef up your defenses and hope you can take away their attack. I spent a lot of time in the off season looking for ways to counter the high powered offenses and still feel that with our current set of talent that we should have went DB in the 1st round and built up the defense with top talent instead of taking the OL but time will tell. My theory was that the LT, while important can only impact 1 defensive player on any given play while a shut down corner can take away a whole side of a field, which can give the DL more flex in how they attack the QB.
In the end if we are going to be a rushing, ball control, TE heavy offense we NEED to have a top notch defense with great coaching and great talent or we go nowhere. It doesn't cut it to have second rate LB's and third rate DB's nor can we have coaches who are not the best of the best. Right now we got nuthin.

One of which is what kindof MLB we use and how we use him.
Someone go find that thread I posted this summer on this very same subject so that we are all talking off the same sheet of music again. (for once).Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

And I didn't want our "Ball Hawking" safety gone for any other reason than he didn't want to play in the scheme (not my fault) and he was a ex PUKER (again, not my fault).
Absolutely stupid to have a cat on the team that refuses to play the scheme the coaches want him to play for goodness sake.
Look, it isn't like I'm in love with the scheme for cripes sake. Not sure why you have a bug up your ass trying to make it out that way.
All I'm doing is pointing out the issues we have trying to run that scheme. Pop your head out of your ass, get the burr out from under your fricken saddle and you might just fricken see that.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

I'm kindof sick and tired of watching them try to fix the scheme by throwing DB's at it instead of just drafting one guy.
Think about how good our D would be with a cat like Raji, Suh, Poe, ect.
Something to watch that I did for the first time this weekend, watch how hard our LB'rs work to get to the gap. Chad and Erin get there, but they usually get there after fighting off a blocker. The reason they have to do that is because guys like JA, K-dubb, Guion aren't demanding doubles.
Again, something someone pointed out that I've never paid attention to.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

You seem to hammer his analysis no matter what. Marrdro makes some very good points (my friend, Marrdroese) and they are:
1. We need a warpig-Our D-line has gone down hill since when, what happened that you can actually markedly see, Fhat Pat's departure. Since that has happened our D whether it be run D or pass D has gone down hill.
2. We need a Mike linebacker in the worst way. I take that back we one in the worst way.
3. We need some ball hawing safeties!!
If you want the T2 to work you have to be stong up the middle on D IMO! That pretty much goes for any sport.
a. I think we have the S's. They are just learning. The lack of the Warpig kindof hurts that progression, as it does with our younger DB's as well.
b. I think that we are putting to much emphasis on the MLB. Again one has to realize that we run the C2 not the T2. For some reason the difference between the two has been missed on this page.
c. We play alot more Man to Man than most recognize as well. Whinny got beat (early in the game) on a man up coverage.
On a side note, thanks for the backup with our good friend Steve. Give him some time. Again, frustration is tough to deal with. Some handle it better than others.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.
