Default Why is our defense stinking so bad?

After watching 3 games, it seems like our D-line is more interested in dancing with O-linemen rather than shedding a block and harrassing a QB. Is there a reason for this? Are they "trying to clog the running lanes"? I just don't get it. Maybe we should just swap our lines. Our O-line isn't much interested in stopping anyone.

I don't know why. I remember in the off-season almost everyone on the board was saying our defence was going to be improved this season.

We have no talent on defense. A rookie is our best defensive player.

The talent level is not up to par. period. You can't blame Mario solely for how bad this defense is playing. They aren't getting these guys in 3rd and long very often & when they do, they can't stop them. Wash. 3rd down conversion % will be sky high like Indy & Philly's was & Brunell wasn't throwing past 10 yards very often.

As bad as our O-line has always been, any 4 of them probably would give us a better pass rush on D than these jokers we've got playin' now. That's our biggest problem by far, but the safeties also suck. Not just bad, they suck.

That's OK though, let's just blame Carr, one of only about 4 descent players on this team, like usual and start screamin' for the next rookie #1 QB.

I'll admit that I'm still wanting to give Mario a chance, but this statement here is right on the money. Brunell and Portis were having a field day. Redskins must have the ball for like over half the game.

Why....because we have limited/marginal defensive talent and a rookie coordinator. That's a formula for a disaster.

Agreed. To add to it we've got someone who's at best a backup SS/special teamer starting at FS. One starting caliber CB & a rookie MLB who are the best players on the defense. We can't get pressure, and we end up making Mark Brunell look like Peyton Manning.

Without doing research, Im sure we have more 1st round picks on D than the Redskins. For that matter, Colts or Eagles for that matter.

Eventually they'll figure out that that's our problem and start trading 1st round picks straight up for 4 round picks. I have a crazy theory that it may actually work for us.

Unless RB can tackle and put pressure on the opposing teams qb, then he would not have made anything any better. It is a shame that our oldest (Seth Payne) and newest (Demeco Ryans) are the only play makers on defense. MW is too green and needs a lot of tutoring to improve and we need to find someone to cover the middle of the field.

Is RB short for running back in this statement? I've been keeping tabs on Reggie Bush and he's exactly what a lot of people thought of him: Dante Hall in black and gold.:brickwall
MW will be OK if given the chance.

He'd make them better, but not enough to overcome the inept defense we play. It would've been nice to see him catching those DC dump passes & see what he'd do with them. I bet you guys wouldn't mind see DC throw dumps all day then!
