I think we need to fire whoever is responsible for thinking we could play this season with rookie and inexperienced DB's.

I think that David Gibbs convinced Kubiak he could duplicate what he did in KC with rookie DBs

I love how our db's get bashed for the failings of the passing game. Oakland's WR's combined for 4 catches for 45 yards. It was the backs and TE's that ate us up, and that is on the linebackers. Quinn and Jackson did a very good job today.

Yeah, they got a bit of help with dropped balls, but they still did a damn good job.

I would not call this a knee jerk thread by any means. Anyone who watched the game would know the D almost blew the game.

On the plus side, Nolan looked stellar. He really has an eye for the ball that Wilson doesn't. We see a lot of tip balls go for nothing. If for no other reason, Nolan should get the start for having that ball hawking ability.

That's what I have been saying. Now that Cush is back hopefully we can cover the short routes.

It's been that way since Washington. Sure the WRs in those games got some big yards, but the QBs threw the ball 60 times.

Backs & TEs have been getting several hundred yards in the passing game, and that has been what is killing our passing D. & that is a group of veterans.

I liked seeing Adibi tip that ball to Nolan, then Ryans tipped the second ball to Nolan.... it's about time they got involved in the passing game, other than tackling & watching FBs score.

Diles... is not a pro-bowl Will, I don't care what Kubiak says.

Last year, we made a big adjustment by adding Pollard.

This year, maybe the adjustment that was needed was Nolan at FS. Seems to have helped. The Raiders have big, athletic WRs and a monster TE. Oh, and don't forget the McFadden-Bush combo out of the backfield. That's 5 or 6 talented guys out there on any given play.

Nolan held his own. And it made the CBs look better.

The front four held their own. And the CBs look better.

Now we get Cushing back. I think the CBs will look a bit better next Sunday, as well.

CB might just be the hardest position to play in the NFL. You have to judge whether to stay with your man, pass him off, cut with him, run with him, stop with him, etc. One little bobble, and you're toast. Burnt toast.

3-1 without Duane Brown and Brian Cushing? I'll take it.

If we judge the season by a quarterly basis, with us just completing our first quarter (the first four games, for those of you in Rio Linda), I say 3-1 is fantastic. Especially after facing the Colts right off the bat.

If we can string together another 3-1 stretch in the 2nd quarter, that places us at 6-2 at the halfway mark. I'll take it.

My biggest gripe is that it seems the LINEBACKERS are in zone way too much.

Does it seem that way to you guys? Loco en cabeza.

I don't think it's that they are in zone "too much" more than they don't understand zone.

Passing lanes seem to hold no meaning for them. When receivers enter their zone, they don't seem to know what to do, until he catches the ball. It seems like they don't have any peripheral vision.

The two tips, by Adibi & Ryan led to INTs..... made Nolan look like a starter (albeit Wilson probably would've dropped those)... we need more of that.

Yea, it seemed like we would vacate the middle and lots of their catches were where our linebackers should be. At the snap our LB's would drop and BAM, catch over the middle for 8 yds.

I didn't want to start a new thread but


I am wondering about Ray Rhodes if things keep getting worse and (I seriously doubt anything will happen) the Texans decide they need a spark in the coaching staff

If I recall he is still the defensive assistant but I don't ever hear much about him..
