Default Defense

How many games will Dick Smiths defense give up 30 points agame before he gets fired?

With 4 minutes left in the game they should have been in an all out blitz mode. If they got burned it would have given us more time to try to score the game winning touchdown.

They should have been blitzing on 4th & 8 with 2:48 left in the game.

Where is this hard hitting agressive defense Dick Smith has been telling us they would be playing the last 3 years?

In 2007, we gave up 30+ points 5 times. In 2006, we gave up 30+ points 4 times.

Now, not all of that is on the defense. In some of those games, the offense or the special teams gave up some points.

And, I'd have to go back and check, but the defense IS blitzing. Fairly often. They're just not getting much pressure when they do blitz and that puts a lot of pressure on our secondary and the LB's that aren't blitzing to cover.

Default Re: Defense

They are well on their way to allowing 30 or more points more than 6 times this year.

They are 3 for 3 this year in allowing 30points.

If Dick Smith stays all year .... Every team they line up against will put up 30 .... including a Junior High .... Junior Varsity squad from a school near you.
