    Pass defense is not as bad as everyone thinks.

    OK enough is enough.Our pass defense is not terrible so stop saying it over and over and over....The only reason teams rack up the passing yards on us is because they give up running the ball.Thats what you get when you are the top rushing defense in the league!The card ran in only 5 times today!Leinhart threw it FIFTY ONE TIMES! 51! OF COARSE HE IS GONNA GET A LOT OF YARDS!

    ONLY?

    I can see some of what you are saying, but we still need to get better on Pass D.

    The way other teams move the ball down field tells the story about our D.

    Re: Pass defense is not as bad as everyone thinks.

    As long as the Rush defense is doing its job and the Pass defense is not, they're going to get ripped on.
    Maybe we should consider blitzing more often?
    Might work in the Bears game next week, since Grossman doesn't seem to do very well under pressure and throws often off his back foot.
    May also cause him to loft a lot of his passes.

    We got carved up by the Pats and the Packers because they threw the ball around on us. Not every team will be the Cards and turn it over 4 times.

    It isn't just that they are throwing a lot of passes and getting a lot of yards.

    There is no pressure on the QB. I don't think the DBs are the problem as much as the line is.

    Not only that, but they should know by now that teams are going to pass alot, every game. Where are the adjustments? When you know a team is going to pass 90% of the time, it should be a little bit easier to stop.

    Re: Pass defense is not as bad as everyone thinks.

    Our pass defense is definitely not as bad as the numbers would indicate ... and our defensive backs are held far too accountable for something that seems to be pressure related. Losing Tank (A solid blitzing safety), Greenway (a fast LB who could provide more coverage/blitz packages) and Erasmus (a very solid pass rusher in the making) hurts us with pressure and is making our secondary work harder than it should.
    That said ... we need to get better against the pass if that is all that opponents are going to do against us. Denny Green said all week he did not plan to run the ball in this game ... I was surprised they did it at all the way he was talking. We need to draw up more blitz packages clearly. Our front four is just not getting any pressure. When we do blitz, teams just screen around us and our lineman and LBs don't pick it up ... this all needs to change if we want to win out and be a player in how this NFL season finishes.

    Re: Pass defense is not as bad as everyone thinks.

    When you are defending against a team that is going to stick to the pass..

    and you can't stop it. there are problems.

    400+ yards..
    ok.. I agree that if you pass 50+ times. your gonna get yards.
    at least they didn't beat us with passing TD's. we are still playing to soft behiend the recivers.. I did notice a fe times that we loose track of WR's. as they scramble around and Denny's young QB was moving a lot in the pocket waiting for that 1 person to get open.

    it's not just the secondary, nor the midfield zone or man2man.. but the passrush is just not getting it done. M.l had FAR 2 much time to sit back and wait for someone to open up. he also was playing like a well sculpted QB.

    give the kid credit, but.. we gotta step it up if we want playoff pictures to emerge.

    The 'D' is fine. We need more pass pressure.

    Re: Pass defense is not as bad as everyone thinks.

    Put it this way:

    If our Pass D was better...they would have to run!
    The know our Pass D is a joke!
    Yes our Run D is good but do not skew things with the #1 Run D.
    I mean this is the Cards with a rookie QB.
    Your gonna let him come to our house and throw it like that?

    Yah, I feel better now because our pass D is not that bad.

    I'll say it again, our pass defense is terrible. We do not get enough pressure on the QB & teams seem to be successfully throwing 10-15 yard passes on us at will.

    Whether it's 20 or 50 times a game, they are moving the chains time & time again. I may be mistaken, but I believe the Cardinals never even punted yesterday.

    They don't seem to tighten up the coverage until our opponents are in the redzone.

    How often this year have we held a team to a 3 & out?
