Newton running 72 yards for a TD was the last straw

Was our pathetic defensive "performance" today more due to:

1) Nolan not putting together a good scheme ,game plan and play calling ?

Or

2) Nolan did what he's paid to do-- the players just didn't execute what Nolan's plan was?

I really think that because Chris Hope was subbed in for Willy Mo, Nolan had to kind of "simplify" the gameplan. Maybe to help chris owens too but that's the only reason I can think of right now.

By the way this is my first ever post. Been reading for a long time and decided to finally join in.

Do you know anything about football or you just create 100 threads here? The problem is very simple, they were reacting to the read option on almost every play wether to rush the passer or defend the run. The coverage was soft zones, Nolan is a attacking DC who can make Manning and Brees look silly. Luckily we won't see this type of offense may be except redskins.

He ran once doesn't mean they can forget about it. the DL and LB has to make sure they don't get burned by those plays. The Cam Newton TD was a good read by Newton when he saw Kroy and got Decoud ended up in the wrong gap to block Williams. Cam kept the ball and took off. DL and LB were playing back and reacting. If you play aggressively against QB who can run, you let them outside and that will be a TD. Watch the play SF ran against Miami with Kap, it was similar play when MIA was aggressive.
