I wasn't the VanGorder hater that a lot around here were, but if this game highlights anything, it's the need for upgraded talent on the defense. No matter who you bring in the run a defense, you've got to give him the talent to work with.

The run defense got a lot worse this year, but look at what changed from 2011 to 2012. You're run stopping LB went to New Orleans, and you plugged at guy into the middle in Dent that probably isn't ready to be a full-time starter. He definitely isn't a 3 down linebacker.

In fact, this is one of the thinnest linebacking corps in football. They were forced to play Nickel as a base. No surprise the run defense suffered.

The pass defense improved this year, but what changed there? Asante Samuel.

It all comes back to talent.

Nicholas was awful today. Lost. And then the stupid penalty. I am gonna give crédit to nolan another year, but This playoffs the defense has been a disappointment. I dont want to imagine if these playoffs game were under bvg, people would have gone crazy on him

We would have been 1 and done again under BVpornstache.

It was. The defense had their assignments and blew them. Nicholas had no idea where he was. Doesn't matter, I don't even want to argue. Just emotionally drained. D@mn! D@mn! D@mn! My Florida Evans moment. UGHHHHH!
