Really? If you were DC how would you pressure the opposing QB's with the current talent we have? Just Currious because I keep hearing this over and over. I just dont see how it could be done with this cast of players.

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.

We keep hearing this sentiment over and over again too.

The defense has been such a failure this year that the brain trust has to try something different. They are paid to find solutions to problems, not resign thmselves to the status quo of giving up an average of 33 points per game.

I cant wait till Marvin Lewis is fired in Cincy!!! He's the elite DC we need to complement Kubiak and the rest of the offensive specialists we've got coaching our team. We need a DC that Kubes can say, "I trust your judgment so i'm not even gonna tamper with your unit. Do whatever you want because I know we're gonna be okay with whatever you do."

Marvin Lewis has a TRACK RECORD that proves he's that type of DC. Richard Smith has a TRACK RECORD that proves he's nowhere near that class of DC.

I agree something has to change. I just dont think its totally Richard Smiths fault. I would love it if we brought in a DC with a better track record though. Hey anytime you can make an upgrade you should. Lewis should be getting the ax soon. Is there a better DC than him anywhere in the NFL?

He is another good option as is Frank Bush but if we could get Marvin Lewis that would be such a coupe it would make me cry. Lewis is the best DC since Buddy Ryan IMO.

Marvin Lewis did serve as a coaching intern for the 49'ers while George Seifert was Head Coach. Several years later, Gary Kubiak was hired as Quarterback's Coach of the 49'ers under the same Head Coach.

Not quite the Bronco/Colorado St. connection- but a connection nonetheless!

Well, considering how Frank Bush spent 8 years in Denver with Kubiak, I'll trust him if he decides to go the Bush route. Kubiak should know what hes getting if he elect Bush for DC, and besides Gary always had an eye for talent....
