It just pisses me off because its a consistent problem we have, and he doesn't address the issue. Teams that beat the Patriots get constant pressure on Brady that has to be your game plan, ours is lets sit back and wait for him to make a mistake, and this is the outcome we get.

Nolan has the same problem that BVG did -- only rushing 3 to get to the QB. BVG used that awful 3-3-5 formation; Nolan uses a 3-2-5 formation. As bad as our linebackers and safeties are in coverage, we can't afford to sit back and play pass defense. He's going to have to switch things up and be attacking/aggressive on 3rd downs, in that **** LeBeau-Jim Johnson-Monte Kiffin-Rex Ryan school of thought -- rush 6 or 7 and force the QB to make a quick throw; don't give him time to throw it 40 yards downfield.

Is it really Nolan or BVG? or Smith says that's all you have to do

It honestly is that simple. It's the same issue Grantham has at UGA. We are very good on 1st and 2nd downs, but on 3rd we get conservative and our DL is too weak to get any push.

our DL is not too weak and they constantly get push and penetration, they just don't fight off blocks. what's the point of blowing the guard backwards 4 yards if you left him lock you up and keep you out of the play. if they fought blocks, we'd probably be top 10 in TFL. and that penalty that the Pats got on 3rd & 14 actually helped the Pats cause we were bringing the house on that play, then got conservative after the call

Not getting off blocks is a part of being weak. OL gets a hold of em and it's over. They are locked up and can't go anywhere. Over and over it happens.

no, they play contain of fill gaps. there's a difference. they can get off the blocks, I've seen Peters & Jerry do it with ease. seems like Babs is the only one with free reign to fight. even when Ray Edwards was here (poor example) coach Smith said he was doing what he was supposed to do, which is why he had such a bad attitude. he wanted to get after QBs and get sacks, they wanted him to play contain and be a run stopper

Well if what your saying is right, then it falls in line that our coaches are doing a poor job of letting our guys do their thing. Not scheming around our players strengths. Because what they are doing now, isn't working.

So that's the issue. Nolan is only using 10 players.

that's why so many people want Chuck Smith as D-line coach. I'm willing to bet everything I have that if we had someone with some fire & intensity coaching the D-line those same guys would produce & generate stupid pressure. they strong, quick & powerful, they should be doing damage.

We have a bunch of Gap Shooters, but not 1 single guy that can push the pocket.

Why are we terrible when we have a offense on third in long? This should be a simple get off the field but for the last few years this has been a consistent problem for us. I think that 3rd down in yesterdays game is what really sparked are total decline.

Third and long is when a soft zone/no pass rush defense gets exposed.
