KRUNKuno Posted September 28, 2009 Share Posted September 28, 2009 Thomas Dimitroff might say he's okay with our defensive line, but that showing against the patriots was simply embarrassing. Positive yards came out of every play NE ran it seemed. They abused our front four no matter what the combination was. The whole game was defensively demoralizing.Our defensive line, in general, lacks natural intensity. It's as if they have to make a play before they can get fired up. Besides that, they get pushed back at least 3 yards every running play. Some of the holes that have opened up in these first 3 games are ridiculous.That pass rush that everybody said was finally here is still non-existent. I keep wondering when Sidbury is going to get some meaningful reps in these games. I have yet to see him on the field. JAMAAL ANDERSON IS OFFICIALLY A BUST. Easily the worst draft pick in franchise history. He provides nothing, and dont try to give me that run-stopper bs. It's horrible watching him play. Painful even.What I think we will do is sign a free agent defensive tackle. I keep saying Terdell Sands. He's big but agile. I also believe that we will start seeing Sidbury more. I see no reason for us to keep him sidelined while Jamaal Anderson continues to get opportunities to stink up the field.All in all, I think this game was a huge wake-up call. We're not that good defensively. It's 2008 all over again when this was supposedly the year we would play downhill defense. I'm not screaming 2-14, but I am screaming "fix this now!" This is our bye week so I believe we will. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
