    Your defensive scheme sucks. Young corners with no pass rush = a loss. Fix it, it's your job.

    Pretty much all you have to do against this D right now is quick drop and pass/screen/fake pass-draw run. And you can do it over and over and over again because the D won't pick up on it. The coverage doesn't begin until 5 yards later, if at all so quick passes are always open, screens and draws are like the most confusing, thumb pulling off magic trick that a defense has ever seen so they go for big yards over and over. Really.

    Take a gamble jumping a quick route once in a while. Romo looked like friggin Manning out there throwing short passes all over the place.

    seems like shades of last year, when the Texans blitzed, it fooled no one and instead of having 4 guys rushing and getting stopped, we get 6 guys getting bunched up in the middle and getting stopped.. I think the only time I saw us win a one on one battle was when mario got the sack (however it was taken away when Romo grounded the ball) *edit* take that back Smith got to tackle barber for a loss on one play

    meanwhile our corners are playing soft and not wanting to give up the big play so they make the play after the WR catches the ball

    :gun:

    but hey we are stopping the run

    I thought one of the reasons why we drafted Jackson was because of his physicality at the line and his ability to do bump and run? We haven't seen any of our corners really jamming guys at the line

    I'm trying to figure out how this defense is different than his predecessorsÂ’.

    It's funny when everyone screams for the corners to play press coverage and they get burned for TD's both times they do it. Maybe there's a reason why they don't do it more often...

    And yet the coaching staff doesn't use him in that type of coverage. We prefer the 8 yard cushion.

    Ummmm... did you miss one of Roy William's TDs? I forgot which one, but it came off bump & run coverage on KJ.

    Right now, our coverage is sort of pick your poison. Press coverage and give up the big play? Or give a 5-10 yard cushion and give up the easy 5-10 yard play.

    to think we could of signed shoebel if we wanted to spend some money. Hurry up and get back CUSH! this D looks so weak without you out there lighting everyone up.

    The way this defense has been playing these first 3 games is giving me Richard Smith flashbacks........ :hide:

    The play that Jackson gave up the TD was when he was trying to get "physical" at the line. He tried, got manhandled and fell, giving up the easy TD. That kid has a LONG way to go in a short amount of time. We can't afford to give up this kind of yardage and points, week after week.

    I'm VERY concerned about this D, from every position. Our LB core right now is dismal. Our D-line is stopping the run, but absent from the pass rush (at least today). Our secondary is the worst part, by far. I know Cushing brings a lot of swagger, but I'm worried that he won't be able to energize this defense enough to get over their lackluster play.

    We better fix our offense problems too, 'cause we better expect to put up 30+ points a game to win. We've given up a minimum of 24 points in 3 games, IIRC. No good. :gun:

    Get Cushing back, with his QB pressuring and ability to help in coverage, and a lot of these ills will be cured. He's smarter and quicker than anyone else they have. Meco didn't have a very good game today, as they constantly got caught with their pants down on delay draws. They should've seen that coming.

    The other TD came of bump & run coverage on Brice Mccain. Two attempts
    at bump 'n run, two touchdowns.

    Man this whatever defense scheme the texans are running is freakin horrible enough said. Frank Bush make up your damn mind are we a 4-3 under defense or a 3-4 defense!!!!!! Please the 4-3 under or cover 2 crap is horrible. THe texans get the most pressure we go too the 3-4 look with Mario standing up like an outside linebacker. PLEASE find some safeties to help the young cornerbacks out and stop playing them man to man because we have no safeties that read and cover. THe defense gave up 400 yards passing the 1st 2 games.

    This thread reminds me of all the threads last year after 3 weeks. Things went pretty well those last 13 games defensively yes?

    The scheme's fine. The players suck. Today we saw what we already knew, to be perfectly honest. We have two good DEs, but no DTs. We have a couple good LBs, but we miss Cushing. We have young, inexperienced, and probably not starter-caliber CBs. We have one safety that plays in the box well, but is weak in coverage, and he's complemented by a safety that doesn't play in the box well and is poor in coverage.

    What's your scheme idea?

    Personally, I don't see much they can do, but I'd start with putting Nolan in there.

    Why do people think we low-balled Schobel? The Texans made him an offer, he stayed retired. End of story. Dude has made a ton of money and maybe is just tired of the abuse his body has taken. Let it go.
