Not trying to make any points or prove anything. Just thought I'd share this with you guys. These don't really tell much since these two were in very different situations, but I thought it would be fun to do this.

Yep. He was great on 1st and 2nd down. Just did not get off the field on 3rd down.

And a lot of that was just stubbornness. If you know you don't do well against the pass on 3rd down, switch it up. If they had played 3 CBs, 2 FS in the secondary, and dropped William Moore down at LB with spoon....then it would have been a radically better pass defense.

They could have kept their normal D on 1st and 2nd, but on 3rd and longs, gone to a DB heavy D. It was a fairly easy thing to try, that I've been pushing for 3 yrs, and they never got around to it. If your coordinator won't change it up when it's not working, there's going to be a problem.

Though I want a much more aggressive D, Nolan could just do what Van Gorder did on 1st and 2nd down, and throw in the above defense on 3rd and longs (with some disguised blitzing) and the D would improve dramatically.
