How Is It Possible We Are Worse On Defense Than Last Year?

Honestly? No clue. We add in Jackson, Soliai, Shembo, and even Hageman... and get WORSE on rub defense.

Biermann is awful. AWFUL.

Lowery has barely been an upgrade on DeCoud; Wilson and Arenas aren't playing; Alford and Trufant aren't being allowed to play press man.

And vets like Babineaux and Umenyiora aren't contributing.

Plus Nolan refuses to use the young guys like Mass, Maponga, or Goodman.

Honestly, Nolan doesn't seem to be trying. Like he's trying to stick to his guns and use a scheme he likes instead of acknowledging the reality of the players we have.

Yeah, I saw zero adjustments on D at halftime. He continues to leave untalented LBs in the middle of the field to cover TEs, slot WRs, and LBs... continues to have the CBs play way off the ball... continues to use Kroy as a top pass rusher while leaving Maponga and Goodman and Hageman on the bench.

There is a reason our LBs went undrafted. Teams just slice and dice the middle of the field.

We signed some players to "improve" the D-line and got rid of Decoud.

Maybe the problem is Nolan. He gets a lot of accolades for his past accomplishments but hasn't done much with the Falcons.

He can't scheme the defense to stop the run or pass. When he tries to bring the heat with blitzes the defense always seems to get burned. .
