    Had a rough start, but if his defense continues to play like this, we could be heading to good things this season. Now if only we can blitz with relative effectiveness.:jogger:

    The defense has improved. No two ways about it.

    Ya we really don't disguise the blitz too well. If we could get some consistent pressure on the QB then this D could take another huge step forward. D played great the last few weeks though! With our offense, all we need is to hold teams to 3 scores or less.

    I think getting Reeves back boosted that secondary alot, which as a whole boosted the defense. Not to mention the emergence of Pollard.:wild:

    you keep watching the intelligence on the field. everybody is exactly where they're supposed to be. especially against the run.

    It's usually not until week 16 that our D has turned it around and is playing this well ;). I'm happy for Frank that he's getting some results, hopefully they can sustain it.

    Yeah, my only real problem with this D is our lack of pressure on the QB, which will undoubtedly come back and bite us in the ass one of these games.

    To sum it up, We send the house, and get stuck in the doorway.

    Yeah, I know that really doesn't work

    i could care less about the pressure & sacks. we're getting TO's when we need them. I don't know what we were in the takeaway/giveaway department last year at about this time but we're +1 now & would be more if slaton could hold on to the damn ball!!!!

    Careful. That kind of crazy talk will get you in trouble around here.

    they showed flashes from game one. now they're just getting consistent (ie not making boneheaded mistakes)

    Where's everyone who wanted to fire him after three weeks? So many knee-jerk posters on here. You have to give the guy at least a year before calling for his job.

    This is an interesting observation; one that was made by Wilson (or was it Ferguson?) when we first picked him up.

    My question is, is the lack of disguising our blitzes on the players for not being better actors or on the coaches for not teaching them to be "better actors"?
    :thinking:

    This was a knee jerk that I think was warranted, due to the circumstances.

    We stayed in-house instead of grabbing a non-Kubiak guy.

    With the way the season began, it's easy to excuse the temper tantrums.

    It looked like it was going to be really ugly.

    And you know what? This season has just started. Got a loooong way to go.

    Exactly, if 6 weeks in the "season has just started", then certainly 3 weeks in it had just started as well. It is never warranted to call for someone's job after a measly 3 weeks.

    It's always time to call for someone's job after three weeks.
