Default Re: Richard Smith....A Good Defensive Coordinator?

I'm starting to believe that our Up and down performances is a result of coaching. Our team has some talent, especially on the defense. The offense isn't as talented, but we play a ball control offense that relies on not making mistakes. It seems we should be alot more steady. This loss was embarassing.

I think there's some good answers here in the thread. It's no coincidence that when prompted both years to get more agressive in play calling our defense looks better. We have a lot of young emerging talent on this team and it's time we got a D coord. who will utilize the pieces that are being put together.

If we manage to win this weekend...it'll really give us a catapult going into the off-season. We have a chance to overhaul the staff withg Sherman to A&M and Kubiak needs to sit and think real hard about keeping Smith. I think it Kubiak wants to be here long term it really is in his best interest to take over the offense and mold it into what he wants. It slowly looks like he's bringing in the right guys on the OL to fit his ZB roots. No more too many cooks in the kitchen this is HIS offense now. Bring someone on board with what you want do Kubiak.

Defensively I'd love to see someone taken from the Philly staff from the Jim Johnson School. Hell.....pay the money to take Jim away.There might be a few names available and i'd love to wrap up Marvin Lewis if he gets fired. Might not have worked out in Cinci Defensively as a HC but even now we've got better all around talent on our D. This next game will be very telling IMO what direction we head going into the offseason.

There is no way Jim Johnson leaves Philly for another DC position, but I love their defense. I would'n't mind their line backers coach, etc. I think we have the peices to put together a defense similar to theirs. We just need more speed in from the linebackers and the secondary.

Personally, I prefer more aggressive play calling. Particularly when you consider the strength of our defense, which is our front seven. The longer a pass play goes on, the more advantage swings to the offense. If you blitz more and don't give the QB time to read the defense and set up properly for a pass, you limit the exposure of the weakest part of the team, the defensive backs.

Agreed. I believe but do not know for fact that Richard Smith does exacatly what this head coach wants him to do. If I'm wrong, Kubes will toss him under the bus this off season. From My tree he doesn't have enough pieces to bring what most on this board would like to see him bring. Further, he cut his teeth under Glanville. Either he's prety dense or he knows how to bring it. I think dumping RS would only accomplish one thing. Trade one guy who can't bring pressure with mediocre tallent for another guy who can't bring pressure with medocre tallent. RS can't play for them. But what ever makes the board feel better .....fire the guy

Seems to be common theme here for sure. They match up healthy against a beat up team or simular tallent they have a most excellent chance to win. Up to you to figure out who is who and what is what. When they don't match up, they get stomped.
