    I would not bust his nuts too much when for that game, that is one fine and complete defense. Especially if the replacement refs and their version of the contact rules stay in place.. it will be hard sledding. Harvin leaking out of the backfield and moving the backers will probably be the best play of the day.

    Unlike some here, I wouldn't mind a defensive coach. I was really hoping they'd make Tomlin head coach & shit-can Childress. But we would then need a top-notch offensive coordinator. Someone with enough credentials that they could be a head coach.
    Defintely agree there, I am still of the belief that defense wins championships. You can win with an average to above average Offense if you have a dominating D. I think th e49ers are a good example, I am not particulary afraid of their offense but try to score on them. I think they will be a tough out in the playoffs.

    There s only two things stopping you - fear and common sense!! The Truth you CAN"T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!!!!!!!

    Bah...it is what it is: a young rebuilding team. We've got some players who make some nice plays, and thus we can keep it close, but our chances of beating really good teams will be very low this season.

    Most of the complaints on Ponder: He's looking downfield too long, He's running too much, He's not throwing the deep ball; Tie directly into our gaping hole of nobody who can get open deep. Most teams have 3-5 of those guys. His completion % is spectacular as is his old school QB Rate of 110.6, good for 6th best in the league. Give the boy a legit, out-side, deep threat (or 2) and we will see improvement in Ponder's, Harvin's, AND AP's stats!

    I liked the point one of you guys made in the JA thread: Defense kinda is what it is now. With so many rules made to help the Offense, what you can do has changed (add) and most teams play back and try to tackle in front of them. The zone used to rely on hard, bone-jarring hits to knock the ball loose, but now you can't do that, so you have to play the ball instead. We've seen a bit of that with Greenway and Smith, perhaps some of our team is on that idea...?

    Hate to say it, but Winny looked really slow vs. Avery. I hope he can step it up a bit as the season rolls one, cuz nobody else starting back there has more than 12 games under their belt!!? D'oh!!!
    Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!

    I actually think he is starting to make other players look better around him as he not only used Harvin but he got nice plays (especially on third downs and red zone) out of guys like Toby and Orash.....
