Great shots of more of the creative blitzes. I'm not as woeful of the pass pro as he is though. I'll see his concerns about Kareem but I'll raise them to hopeful. I don't think it's realistic to expect him to look solid on every snap. He looks good at times and bad at times. I think he's trying too hard. His tackling is not as sound as it was earlier in the season but that can be said for the entire D. Could he look better? Yes. Will he?..... oh isn't that the million dollar question. I think they can all look better on defense.

All I can say is Frank Bush Defense 2.0 was installed Monday morning when Brian Cushing was waiting at the front gate.

The other 10 guys should all look better on every snap.

I was just left feeling whatever after reading that.

On the play he's showing about problems with our play action passing, the play busted because Vonta Leach fell down going through the line. Schaub strung the play out waiting for someone to come free and no one did. That's not a bad play. And we had a beautiful TD on a play action so... whatever.

We have problems with our pass blocking. OK. I don't think they're that bad. Schaub needs to get rid of the ball and guys need to get open. The Raiders have good DBs and our guys weren't getting free. But our stats would have looked a lot better if JJ had caught a couple of balls that he should have caught. And we didn't have AJ playing.

So... I'm not worried about our passing attack.

We let the Raiders complete some passes when we were in zone. OK.

We need to play better defense. OK. We should be playing better D in the next game or so.

I hated how he had the plays already playing there. Gave me a headache trying to read the paragraphs between all the damn motion going on.

Did you see Winston on that play? If Vonta didn't fall down, that guy that Winston ignores would have been there to pressure Matt.

I don't know what he was thinking, or what he was trying to do, but surely that wasn't it.

However, I don't think that is a chronic problem we've been having this year, at least it hasn't stuck out yet this year. Same as Vonta falling down... how often does that happen?

Personally, I think our play-action has been working well this year. I think the Raiders were looking for it Sunday, & we went to a little too often.

We'd have done better with more pitches & screens.

I think if we come out the way we did last Sunday, with going to the play action right away we will be successful. After Foster's game, NYG will be trying to stop him early.
