You cant say put Cochran in at DE instead of Weaver and Adibi in instead of either OLB either because they have both been hurt. What would you of done different?
1. Show pressure fronts most of the time. Don't always bring pressure but show the threat of it.
2. Create pressure by bringing numbers and creating confusion... Laying back against Jacksonville, Tennessee, and Pittsburgh may have kept the score down around 30 but defensively we never stopped those teams, they simply controlled the ball, the tempo, and scored at their pace... I'd gladly take giving up another 4-7 points a game if we get another turnover, create more negative plays including sacks, and the offense gets 2 extra posessions in the game.
3. I'm not a D.C. so I don't know.
