    Bob McNair should make his defensive staff do one of those "Finish the pattern" tests.

    Like this: ***!!!***!!!____ (Finish the sequence).

    Somewhere earlier this afternoon, Richard Smith was sitting in a musty-smelling Lazy Boy chair. Nothing but boxers and old, ratty house slippers on. Empty beer cans strewn all over the floor around his feet. Eating a NightHawk salisbury steak TV dinner. And he jumps up, while watching that long TD run by MJD, and yells at the TV (while bumping his tray and spilling the corn) "I TOLD YOU SO! Read and REACT! Read and REACT!"

    Laces out, Frank.

    Discuss ways we can prevent the infamous "Long TD run around right tackle."

    It's a tricky play, for sure, but there's got to be a defensive answer for this brilliantly crafted running play.

    Time for Bob to hire a consultant.

    Here was Frank Bush at a postgame news conference.

    His answers were muffled, and barely audible to those in attendance.

    i think the system Bush runs when working gets more players in the back field and when working stops star running backs to Negative yds but when not working can give up the big play more easily

    i guess the old system had more of the Dline men playing zone in the soft underbelly this new one we see none of that

    I think it works because our LBs and D-line are relatively decent at tackling. The problem is our secondary sucks so hard we can't trust them to do anything.

    I think we've seen more negative plays out of the defense than in the past. They do need tackling from the secondary, though. That's a killer.

    yes and also if we had some more pressure on the QB we could get bye on a sub par secondary because they would have the quick drop and getting the QB outta Pocket and messing up his routes and timing and what not but that didnt happen.....

    well the QB pressure was pretty dismal. I did see Garrard flat on his butt a few times but for he was able to get the ball off without too much trouble. I don't know how to change that.
