    yah was excited about him at the begining of the season, but now im gonna say that richard smith should be fired, and we should put john joke there, at least we would have more emotion for the defense

    We have the worst secondary in the NFL, the worst defensive line in the NFL.

    What did you expect? Our 2nd round rookie MLB is our best player on defense easy.

    hell he hasnt even played very well at all today....looks very tenative and slow to react...perhaps too much portis on the brain...that missed INT didnt help us much either...but I do agree he is the best on our defense

    He needs to be treated the same way players are treated who don't perform and don't step up. Fire his a**.

    Seems like he doesn't have too much faith in the CB's in man coverage b/c every 3 & resonablly long he has them sitting back. And am i the only one who sees that our team is losing their footing way too much to be on their home field?:wild:

    No Pass Rush...

    Poor Tackling..

    Secondray is playing horrible..

    Ryans and Robinson are the only people that I have my respect on this defense.. something needs to change quick... we're giving up and average of 30+ points a game.

    I 3rd, 4th, 5th, on up until this defense stops getting pushed around. Pass rush??? What pass rush? It's like they run up against wall that they can't push down trying to get to the QB.

    I agree. He stinks.

    My first move would be too call out number 96 right in the middle of the meeting, then tell him to pack his bags and leave. My second move tommorow would be to tell Richard Smith to accompany him to the airport, and oh by the way, get on the flight with him.

    Fire his asssssssssssssssssssssssssssss

    I agree with all of you who are calling for Smith to get fired.

    Our defense was absolutely pathetic. I left with about 6 minutes left in the 4th quarter, and could only recall ONE occasion where Smith called a blitz, which forced Brunell to get rid of the ball and the Redskins to settle for a field goal.

    Too many times the team gave up first downs on 3rd and 12+ yards on FREAKING RUNNING PLAYS!!!!

    Smith may be an even worse coordinator than Fangio.

    The team's offense looks better to me, but the defense looks even worse. With Weaver and all the 1st round draft picks on the defensive line, the team's complete inability to stop the run is inexcusable.

    Smith will need to be sent packing soon if the defense's performance doesn't improve SOON.

    Yes! But, do NOT EVER consider him as head coach.

    Houston, again.
    If you have limited/marginal talent on the defense and a rookie coordinator, that is a formula for a disaster.

    I don't think it has much to do with the defensive coordinator. We don't have ANY legitimate LB except a ROOKIE. We have no legitimate DL. We have one solid player in the secondary. We have NO legitimate stars. It's the players who PLAY the game, not the COORDINATOR.

    Where is the other Smith - as in GM. Has he brought in one player who has been effective since he has been here. Sorry, its just not him, but we keep patching what we don't have. Its hard at this time of the year, but something is dreadfully wrong defensively.
