SO.. what is wrong with us?
Now.. it is true that turnovers are losing the game for us on offense.. but what is wrong with our defense?
is this new coverage rule making that big a difference? why are we incapable of stopping anyone? our defense wasnt this bad in year 1 and we have a better lineup than we did that year.
Carr is tossing up good numbers but honestly he isnt going to be able to do that against a defensive minded team.
for christ sake we were in a defensive battle during the first half.. WITH DETROIT!! Detroit is not HALF as good defensively as other teams... and we were going toe to toe with them like they were the baltimore ravens or something.
Im honestly disgusted.. as far as we have come.. as much heart as we have shown the last 2 seasons.. how hard we have worked to make an impact and when it looks like everything is finally coming together.. we are playing worse than we ever have.. NO heart.. NO drive.
We are now 0 and 2 and about to start a stretch of difficult games.. if the chargers and the lions offense puts up this many points against us.. what is KC going to do to us? And as bad as KCs defense is.. I wouldnt put them that much worse than SDs and Detroits.. if they are even worse at all.
Who is coming out in next years draft? if we play this way the rest of the season.. we are gonna have that #1 pick.
oh, and I find the whole "fire palmer", "Fire capers", "fire casserly" posts as lame as the next guy.. but I really think we should consider doing something different in the defensive and offensive departments.
Fangio isnt cutting it so far.. we run a 3-4.. and the whole point of a 3-4 is to be quick and aggressive and we are NOT doing it. We are a defensive and run minded team.. and we have a defense than cant stop a TE or a rookie RB behind a shoddy line.. and a running back that fumbles twice a game and still gets 30+ carries.
Also we have 4 good recievers.. 4 guys that can make a difference and we are lucky if we get to each guy once. That is NOT right. Your running back is getting stuffed.. hes fumbling the ball.. hes tired.. GIVE IT TO YOUR SLEW OF VERY TALENTED RECEIVERS!. We didnt score a touchdown till we started throwing downfield.. WAKE UP CALL!!!!!
I would NOT be disappointed if we got us a different defensive coordinator.. and I definatly wouldnt be disappointed if we got an offensive coordinator who wasnt quite as interested in controlling the clock. I know thats how Capers likes to run his offense.. but ya know what.. we have playmakers that we are not getting 100% out of.. Capers either needs to change his view on things, or someone needs to change his view for him (*cough*mcnair*cough*)
Let capers focus on that defense.. get us some damn turnovers, get us some damn sacks, get us some damn 3rd and outs.. get us SOMETHING besides an endless stream of 3rd down completions by the freaking DETROIT LIONS AND SAN DIEGO CHARGERS.
Let someone else focus on our offense.. someone who will let our QB.. who has one of the strongest arms in the league and is pinpoint accurate.. throw the ball. Someone who will let us spread that ball around to Johnson, Bradford, Gaffney, Armstrong, and if none of them are open THEN toss it to DD. Yah its really great when you can toss it to DD and get a first down.. but its even better when you can toss it to Johnson and get 40 yards or a touchdown!
Ive never beleived all this "we are too conservative" bunk.. I always figured that when we had the tools to really open up the playbook.. we would do it. Well I was dead wrong.. we need people with cajones on our coaching staff. We are the damn houston texans.. we arent a freakin yankee team.. I dont WANT a team that isnt gonna play smashmouth football and lay it all on the line to get that W.
0 and freakin 2. just cut your damn hair Carr.
How many draft picks yall think miami would give us for Davis?
can ya tell im not happy :P.
