What I Think ... What Our Problems Are


Recommended Posts

1. Akeem Dent in a Mike Nolan Defense. Doesnt work. Dent is hot garbage as it is, but he certainly doesnt fit Nolan's 4-3 scheme. Dent wouldnt fit a 3-4 either. Dent is a situational LBer at best. He is not a starting MLBer.

2. Turner + O-Line. Too much between these 2 things to say here, so enough said. Revamp both positions or we are 1 And Done again this January;

3. Defensive Fundamentals. Too many "hot-heads" on this defense that does not seem to think that Tackling is a necessary skill (Asante , Dunta , ......more) .

And Ray Edwards - SEE YA! Bye! Good Riddance

This team plays way too soft, too much finesse. If they dont get physical and ANGRY then its going to be the same old story.

Dent is improving. Problem on D is the lack of tackling. When they hit someone, they are either going for the knock out (see Dunta/Willy Mo) or the strip (see Willy Mo and DeCoud). They need to wrap up, and gang tackle.

On the offensive side, we need to work to our weaknesses. For example, if Turner and the OL aren't going to open lanes, you have to wear the D down another way. Throw Ryan into the no huddle for a drive. Wear them out. That's when we'll see holes opening.

i agree, i was wondering why we didn t go no huddle the other day. we have been successful and we needed a change of momentum, and like you said, it helps wear the d down. we need to pass to set up the run and not the other way around, turner can t handle that anymore. we should start going no huddle once a half until it proves we are no longer as successful at it.

Which is really a win-win. Ryan dominates in the No Huddle. It makes the play calling less predictable, and it allows Ryan to use his most powerful asset, his brain. Like you said, instead of running to set up the pass, we need to pass to set up the run.

wrong. when those guys were angry and rowdy and trying to get violent they got shut down because they got a 15 yard penalty that put us on the 27 instead of the 12. oh woe is us!!!
