The offense has had way too many 3 and outs and the D gets exhausted in the 2nd half. I'd like to see him back off the man coverage some too, but I really don't think our D is the problem. Brady will make them look horrible Sunday, but what's Wade supposed to do about that without a healthy Cushing in the middle and an offense that packs it in every 2nd half of every game?

Another thing is nobody wanted JJ Watt, but Wade insisted on it, stood up, took the blame, and said, "This is a good football player." The rest is history.
A defensive coordinator needs to be able to hide talent deficiencies and schematically make things challenging for good quarterbacks. Wade does neither of those things, as you just indicated. In today's NFL, defenses can't just line up and physically beat offenses. They are too disadvantaged. Wade did a lot of good, but he is clearly limited and not what is needed to win championships.
