Fire Romeo Crennel ASAP

With the offseason moves the defense won't be good

Maybe Crennel is the scapegoat this year. O'Brien survives again
Exactly. We are back to the prime Schaub days. Top 5 offense, bottom 5 defense. Lucky for us Luck retired and Foles is on IR. Other team's misfortunes may net us yet another division title!

Not a top 5 offense. Had 21 points with a minute left. Same old offense. 6 sacks.

Funny how Watson was pretty pedestrian all game. 2 completions against a stupified prevent defense, and now all the sudden he's Superman.

Yeah we could've used Clowneys help for sure. But we would have recieve the same fate/results.

He should've known all they needed was 7 yards. So why in hell are your corners 12 yards back. Why are you only rushing 2 freaking d-linemen?

Sorry you can't pin that stupidity on Obrien.

Romeo crennel does not deserve enough criticism. Top 5 front 7 for years and we rush 3/4 all night. Pitiful. Drew is not a rookie, you’re not disgusting coverages against him.

That's why you have to bring some heat. Don't let him pick you apart like that. Even with those top defenses. They still gave up a lot of game winning drives. Pitiful

Crennel defense fails us. Dude continues to play his corners 10-15 yards off these receivers.
I never had a problem playing off the receiver. It's part of the game. I just don't like the way they play off the receiver.

They've got to watch the QB, anticipate the throw then drive on the ball through the receiver. Make him regret catching that ball, if he catches it.

Colvin plays like a guy who is slow . He creeps back , opens up , then realizes they only needed 10 yards .

I think one of the big problems with the defensive backfield is they have very little time playing together. Unfortunately starters play very little in preseason any more. Right now they are playing as individuals and not as a unit. Until that changes, we are going to have problems

I heard someone today say, you don’t sit back and wait for great
QBs to make mistakes. You make them make mistakes.
We have a QB that can play with the best of them. Defense should be all out after the QB trying to force mistakes and create turnovers.

We rushed three 16 times and brees was 13 of 16 and 6 for 6 on third down.
We played soft the second half and they scored on 5 of 6 possessions.
This is Crennels biggest weakness. This bend don’t break defense just
doesn’t work against elite QBs. If he can’t adjust he needs to go.

Maybe, but we don't really have anyone else who can rush the passer. And the secondary needs all the help it can get.

Well what he’s doing sure as hell isnt working. If you don’t

Well if you don’t have the horses you better have a dam good plan. What he’s doing now sure as hell ain’t working.
I don't think anything can work without the horses. There's only so much scheme you can do to cover up big holes.

That's why coach needs to get creative with his schemes. Dude didn't even bring his usual cornerback or safety on a few blitz.

The Saints only have one true pass rusher. So they brought the house, a lot great schemes to get after Watson.
Not sure it was great saints schemes rather than crappy Texans ol play.

I mean they can't even block basic stunts.

Take chances, Disguise ****, move people around pre snap, force the offense to read and react, IDGAF just don’t play soft off man zone coverage with straight up man in the trenches hoping to not give up a big play. Im comfortable saying we have an elite QB now. He’ll most likely keep you in the game so better to play aggressively and hope for turnovers or big plays than sit back and let these other elites just eat you alive and wear your defense down with long time consuming drives.

I think it was both. Yeah we had our true starter at LG out (Kelemete) sucks)and a new LT with no playing time starting an away game in a really noisy environment and they were sending lots of players from lots of angles. If we had done that we would of probably won.

Fair enough let's try it. Maybe Martin can rush more (although he gets destroyed in the run).

Hopefully it doesn't result in bombs against the secondary

Exactly. Breeze is very good but he can be rattled in the pocket.

Exactly this is the regular season where it counts. And I'm like wtf up with this vanilla bullcrap. Why aren't we blitzing?

That's was terrible

It was some of both. The Saints mixed it perfectly. They didn't just sit back and let Watson pick them apart. They made him work unlike what we did.
 

Uncle Rico

Ur apology should be as loud as Ur disrespect was
Take away RAC's 2nd best defender and then blame HIM for the bad play LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Seems those "meager" JD stats are harder to make up with JAGS. SMH.

I honestly think clowney surpassed watt last year.
Watt literally made the nfl all pro first team (edge rusher) and second team (interior DL) yet Clowney surpassed him last year?

https://apnews.com/afs:Content:2820450002

Clowney had 1 vote out of 50 nfl writers

Here’s the actual numbers:

JJ Watt stats 2018

Forced fumbles 7

Sacks 16

TFLs 18

QB hits 25

Clowney stats 2018

Forced fumbles 1

Sacks 9

TFLs 16

QB hits 21

And here I thought I was the only one with this conspiracy theory.

I fear O'Brien is falling into the trap that got Kubiak. He's so focused on building the offense, he's short-changing the defense. It's relatively solid but the GM needs to find another real pass rush threat.
...or get better at DB.
