Default Worst D ever?

Could this be the worst D ever? Can anyone think of a worse D in NFL history? On national TV they give up 42, and 45 points.

We played buffalo and made Lossman look like the next coming of Kenny Stabler, then he gets benched for holcombe for the next six weeks.

In fact have we held anyone under 30 points this year? We even went nine weeks without a turnover. My head hurts just thinking about it.

This D has no pride. They should change the locks on Reliant stadium and not let Fangio in.

I'd normaly say he would be working at kroger soon but he got fired from there cause he was unable to coordinate the sacking of groceries.

Pittifull.

If this isn't THE worst defense, it'll probably make the top 10. We are almost last in every defensive category, and no higher than 31st in any one of them

Probably not the worst, I'm sure someone that wants to do the research can confirm that. I'm a bit beat to do so from the all day event in Reliant-land though.

Hey, at least is wasn't a 35-3 comeback... pretty close though. Unfortunately, this loss stung pretty good, maybe because the win was there for the taking. Win #2 baby. Yeesh.

Good thing we have a defensive minded coach.

Watching the highlights, Travis Johnson, our D-lineman, is running just as fast as our linebacker! No wonder the backers can't cover anyone!

As much as our D sucks and this game just hurts.....i truley and honesly am very proud of our offense. I thought we played a freakin awesome game up till we lost momentum. But that is somethin to look at we played prettyy solid O most of the game.

Absolutly. The O really is starting to look better as the weeks go on. Line is looking good, Wells has been solid, Carr is starting to look better in the pocket and more consistant.

This whole time I have thought all our hatred focused on Palmer was doing nothing more than polonging Fangio's job.

Yeah, since this team's inception, I think our defense was the best in 2002. Did you watch us against the Steelers? Carr could have taken a knee every down and our D still would have won us the game. And even if our defense was ranked #16, we were really probably a top 10 defense, considering our offense couldn't do anything to help our the defense that year.

That's why it's really dissappointing to see our defense continue to decline year after year. And now, we are at unfathomably the lowest point in our brief history. And it is absolutely amazing how bad Casserly has screwed up this defense. We lose Sharper, Foreman, Glenn. And than we bring in Babin and Buchanon. The only good players we have acquired are Robaire Smith and DRob.

And the worst part is, hardly any of our players are going to get better or turn into real prime-time players. It's just safe to say Babin and PBuch are a bust and aren't going to get any better. Greenwood has been in the league for a while, and he isn't going to get any better. The only "young" players on our D that really have a good upswing is Travis Johnson and Peek. Both of which could eventually turn into legitamite players. And we still aren't good in the pass rushing depatrment, after trying to do something about it since the team's inception! RIDICULOUS! We wanted to get a younger and faster defense, but all we did was get a bunch of softies.

We just have a horrible defense in terms of personnel. As for Vic Fangio, this guy sucks. It's not like he has an impressive resume whatsoever. I know lots of people want Capers fired, but I think Capers has to do something about this defense personally. Capers has a very good history with the 3-4 and has been a great defensive coordinator for many years. If we fired him, I would definitely want him to stay as our D-coordinator. He might be a bad head-coach, but he is a good D-coordinator. He needs to pretty much take over as the D coordinator a la Bill Belicheck, because Fangio sucks. Capers needs to start getting more involved with our D, because Fangio isn't getting it done.

But I was told Capers was a defensive genius? So smart in fact that we pass on playmakers in the draft to get guys that fit into the feared 3-4 scheme.

They will not be one of the worst defenses when it is all said and done. However, we may be one of the worst teams.

Don't let this game fool you about our offense. The defenses we'll face the rest of the year will probably make us look as good if not better, but seriously, we're not getting better on O.

Defensively, when you take into account that they are on the field too long, and too often, you should give the guys a break as far as points allowed, and yards given up. With what 7 sacks yesterday, we've got just as many sacks as any team in the league(21), there are 4 teams worst than us on 3rd down, & 14 teams in the league giving up at least 38.9% 3rd down conversions. One of which is Indy.

Honestly, I like our defense.....could see major improvement @ both corners, but overall, we're about mediocre in a mediocre defensive league.

That's what Parcells did. Worked for him.

Then again, he saw Value in Glenn(and it's paying off for him) and Casserly/Capers didn't.

Are you kidding!? Our defense is terrible and with teams like the Panthers, Bears, Steelers, Colts, and even the Jags how can you say this league is mediocre defensively. The league has always taken great lengths to give offense more leadway and now defenses are getting more sacks and interceptions because defensive schemes are now starting to catch up with offenses. Sadly our defense is pathetic and it is Capers, Casserly, and Fangio's fault. It is ho-larious watching Hoke steam on the sidelines as he watches his secondary drop into dumb zones. It is funny watching Robinson come off the field yelling at Fangio for the playcalling. It is sad that Capers and Casserly feed into his system and believe that it can be fixed with smaller workout warrior players. If our offense is aggressive then we always do well. Look at any of Carr's best games or Texans best games and you will see an aggressive offense, it is what are team is built around. We drafted a QB that is a gunslinger and aggressive by nature we run a 3-4 defense where you have to be aggressive and opportunistic to work and we have coaches that want simple execution and no aggression. IT IS SAD!!!

I'd like to see what the average Sacks/game is across the league. I doubt we are too far off.

Most teams appear to give up about 40% of 3rd down conversions,

We give up 1 yard more per play than every other team in the league.

We are probably on the field more, because of our weak offense. So...you should expect our numbers to be less favorable.

We definitely have weaknesses at both corners......Dunta, maybe he can play better if we had better Safeties, I don't know.

Keep the Offense on the filed longer, I gaurantee they'll have much better numbers.

You're absolutely right though, about the need for being aggresive on both sides of the ball. On Offense, I believe we've shown that we have the weapons and the talent to pull it off. It seems we screw up, when we play conservative. On deffense..........I think we'd get burned more often, till we upgrade the corners.

Statistically speaking the 81 Colts were the worst:
Most yards allowed 6,793
Most poiints allowed 533
Most TD's allowed 68
Most First Downs 406

Last year we played much more aggressively and we were better for it. Are our corners that much worse this year? Hell yes they are. D-Rob is still a beast, but like any young corner he is not very good in zones and bites on verteran receivers double moves. P-Buch was terrible in Oakland and Casserly made a mistake in thinking he was an answer for Aaron Glenn. Lewis Sanders, Faggins, Bell, Simmons, and McKenzie(who looks like Hoke is turning into a player) are average at best. They are viable depth on almost any team. They would not be burned, due to increased pressure, almost every QB in the NFL can make a throw to someone if given more than 3 seconds. Our corners are good enough to be in posistion to make plays given that amount of time.
