GET-ME-A-DB-TD Posted October 20, 2015 Share Posted October 20, 2015 So I just drove 10 hours from West Palm to ATL and had lots of time to think. We hired DQ to bring some tenacity to our team and gain consistency on the Defensive side of the ball. He did just that. He's taken this group to the top vs. the run, however, we have sacrificed any type of pressure or blitz offerings due to a simple, basic and fundamental style of defense. Let me ask a few questions:A) when was the last time we saw an opposing QB have to throw the ball away 2-3 times in a game bc nobody was open? Could it be because some one is ALWAYS open? when was the last time we drew a "roughing the passer" penalty bc we were consistently punishing the QB? I personally can't remember one however they get called in Matt Ryan's favor about every other game.C) why throw Julio the ball 30 times in 3 weeks KNOWING he will take the abuse and inevitably pull up gimp for several weeks? It happens every single year I.e. Green Bay and Arizone last year.I ask these questions because as I'm driving I'm listening to the Eagles/Giants game and it's NOTHING short of a defensive showdown. Both QB's are getting BEAT DOWN and all I can think of is "God could you imagine if we had a pass rush like that"? Yes, I know I know we have a better record BUT if we could bring ANY type of heat on third down those 4 wins we pulled out would have been run away victories. For sh!tz sake people STUPAR has a sack. Brooks Reed is a bull rusher and Schofield is an agile, smart playmaker just waiting to happen. All we do is bring edge heat with Beasley, Bierrman and Scho and if they don't beat their guys by the third step, they pull up and spy. I'm really worried.
