It wasn't any of the big plays by MJD that cost us, it was the inability to shadow MJD to make it HARDER for him to even get the ball in the first place. I am at a loss as to how MJD was allowed to sneak out of the backfield and into open space without getting a defender in his grill right off the snap. Richard Smith, or someone on the defensive coaching staff, was asleep today. Forget trying to blame "This play," or "That play." Richard Smith has shown an inability to play smart defense. He's a rah-rah! go-getter who has made a name for himself as a crazy character who gets his D energized...and then we see (A) DBs 8 yards off WRs on short yardage plays, (B) D line players who overrun the play almost every single time, getting burned on the same stupid screen or RB dump pass, and (C) Practically zero "exotic" blitzes that confuse QBs. There's nobody to blame here but Richard Smith--He's why the D gets burned, he's why the D gets tired (because they get burned so much), and he's the reason MJD and Vince Young and other playmakers do what they do to us. We are GREAT at stopping the interior run, but our outer containment is awful, and we got exploited BIG TIME today...partly because the D line on pass plays are motoring up field and past the play itself. There's a whole lot of field left open for guys like MJD to do damage. It's time this team went after a true, legitimate defensive coordinator and paid them almost head coach money to rectify this persistent problem since this team was established.
