JK, even you would have to admit that our OL looked better yesterday even though nothing really changed. He had plenty of time in the pocket. Nice holes were there for AD etc etc etc. In short, I keep telling you guys/gals that its not the OL but the QB behind it. Another week of watching Ponder and you will finally start to come my way.
Every week, but the Cards game, our DL has folded late in games and has provided very little pressure up the middle when it comes to QB's. I for one am tired of watching QB's step up and away from our edge rushers, into a very clean pocket and then scramble around all day long waiting for a WR to find a hole in our zone (Happened 8 times yesterday).
Order of draft goes.......
Best Available DT
Best Available WR
Best Available CB
Best Available G (Hutch really showed his age 3 times yesterday)
Use all your late round picks to move up and get those cats.
Short article on why the Tampa Two is a defense that is doomed to fail...
Yesterday? Have you watched a game this season my friend? We consistently give more cushion than Jlo's ass. And your whole defense in the past about not giving up the big play has been blown out of the water by the team giving up big ones on a pretty regular basis.Quote:
As I said in the post game thread, our CB's sure were playing soft yesterday. That I put on Pagac/Leslie. What happened to the agressiveness we say late last year and in the first halfs of a few games early this year?
They had to blitz and bring pressure because the Packers QB and WR's are way too good to let exploit our crater sized zones. I wonder if there is a secondary in the league that has a slower collective time than ours. My guess is not any of the top 25 teams.Quote:
C2 is one thing, but they sure looked like they were playing prevent for the most part of the game yesterday that and our LB'rs went back to showing blitz way to early again. As soon as Rodgers saw the blitz he just threw to the zone vacated by the blitzer.
Just because other teams are doing it doesn't make it right for us and it doesn't make it the right defense period. Maybe the transition to c2 by these teams is the reason there have been so many TD's and 400 yard passing games this year.Quote:
C2 - There are still teams running the C2 as their base defense and a few more that are in the process of cutting over/making the transition back to it this year. Not sure anyone still runs the T2 as their base anymore.
Not my point. My point was that the traditional Walsh WCO has transitioned and even under him it transitioned which makes sense since he drew it up to be flexible and adapt to the personnel on the team.Quote:
WCO - Lots of teams still run the WCO as their base offense.
Sorry my friend, there is no confusion here. Only an attempt by you to bullshit a bullshitter and that dog don't hunt. Cliche over.Quote:
I think your confusion
I know my football history just fine my friend thank you. The rest of your sentence just validates everything I said and everything you thought I was confused about. If you would have read what I wrote you could have saved quite a few key strokes and just agreed with me.Quote:
stems from the possibility that you believe that there was only one WCO when in fact there were originally 3 base WCO schemes which teams borrow/steal from in a effort to bring a variant to their team that fits their players.
We need to keep every pick. Choose wisely with each one, and look to add picks by trading some of the older guys whenever we can get the right terms.
Isn't the C 2 defense designed to stop big plays and opposing defenses from taking the top off our defense ..... how's that working out for us ??? We either have the wrong players or defensive coordinators around the league have figured this system out and it has run it's course.... I for one am sick of our results.
Still blows, and if we don't intercept Luck at least once and he picks us apart, this thread better see more action. What do they say about turnovers in the NFL? And what doesn't this scheme generate? I think that says it all.
Yeah I've had it with this scheme. 30th game in a row our D got picked apart by the opposing QB. It doesn't matter how bad the QB is, they always look good against us. I'm not saying Luck is bad, but he looked like crap vs the Bears last week and we made him look like Manning the very next week.
