last season (and historically) a lot of the nation insisted it was an issue of defensive scheme being the culprit.
If we could only get rid of Als outdated man to man, natural pressure,mess...things would get better.
some of us insisted that we lacked solid Football players.
We have about as modern a system as you could ask for now...and we are worse.
Please dont trot out defensive rankings from one year to the next...just use your eyes.
The most important player in a 43 is the Mike.
we stuck with Mcclain and paid the price.
The next most relevant position is DE.
You MUST have at least one player who consistently gets to the QB, TWO would be better. We didnt have one...and did nothing about it.
The last position that you must have is a #1 CB.
We went out and signed to retreads, when there were a couple of options available.
We could live with our crappy safeties and our mediocre olbs and our older then dirt DTs if we had done those things.
Yes we have some players that need to go, but when you have OBVIOUS issues on defense, then you MUST focus on being a running team.That means we needed to spend every penny we had making sure the O-line was addressed.
We didnt even do that.
once again for those who missed it last week
we need to draft the DlL. Demontrae Moore...Texas A&M, Star Luitui(sp, yes i know)Utah
or jonathan Hankins OSU
