First off i'd like to say that i'm not trying to upset anyone on here im just stating my opinion. I think Richard Smith is a liability as a DC and is stunting the growth of all of our young highly drafted players on defense. I dont agree with his playcalling and I think we're way too predictable on defense. I believe that our defense is WAY too talented to have guys like Joey Harrington and Cleo Lemon look like all pro qbs against them. I know Faggins is a liability as a CB 2 as well but our safeties are improved this year, im really impressed with CC Brown's improvement now that he's at his natural SS spot and I like Von Hutchin's, we really shouldn't be abused like we are in the passing game. Every team just matches their # 1 WR on Faggins' side and after getting burned numerous times they decide not to put DRob on that receiver but to play Faggins 10 yards off the ball and give up the first down on key 3rd down plays. Bennett is coming along real well though and I hope he takes over the CB 2 sooner than later. As for our pass rush I believe a lot of it is just bad coaching, again we've got too much talent on this D-Line to not be getting consistent pressure. If we blitz it is so predictable the people in the mezzanine see it coming. For the most part we're playing preseason vanilla defenses and I am tired of it. Who here agrees with me atleast somewhat? I'd like to see the smothering defense I know we're capable of having but I dont think we'll be seeing it as long as the coaching philosophy is the same on defense.
