I wasn't really speaking entierly about last night, although last night was part of the problem. We got no pressure on Favre at all. I was speaking about the entire year. Not only are we not sacking QB's, we are not putting pressure on them either. We are last in the NFL in sacks, using a defense designed to put more pressure on the QB. Isn't that one of the reason Capers is partial to his 3-4? We are 30th in yards given up, and our 3rd down % is LAST in the league. I think both of these are tied in rather strongly to the lack of a pass rush. At some point, someone must be held accountable. Are we not drafting correctly, is the defense too complicated, is the coaching bad, do the players not fit the scheme? These questions need to be throughly evaulated in the offseason.
