    I wish they'd stop making mediocre QBs look serviceable

    ...too complex? Let me simplify it to 3 things. We need to tackle the ball carrier before he crosses the line of scrimmage, hit the quarterback before he passes the football, or prevent the receiver from catching the ball. If we do those 3 simple things, we'll be an elite defense."

    Can we PLEASE be a little more OBVIOUS!!!

    While I do agree that his "Alignment. Assignment. Technique" are VERY important elements, he's left out "Game Plan, Play Calling, and Execution". Further, the question remains about the talent level at critical spots on the Defense.

    PERSONALLY, I think we can be better than we were. I think that many of our woes came from a complete lack of a secondary (which has been addressed to an extent) and poor scheme and execution (which go back to coaching). The question is, can this guy get us there? Can he maximize the talent of the team and make things happen?

    We'll see...

    +1, although let me throw in something else he should have said, "hey Rockie, watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat."

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent

    Elite? Probably not, but a much improved pass D will put us in the top 15.

    Hmmm...BR versus "the other"? I'd say it's a toss up where credibility is concerned.

    One was bought for $180 million, and one can be had for a fiver and a bottle of beer...

    You decide which is which...
