Zod

Davidson or Trgo... you must fire one.

It's very frustrating that we now have a championship caliber offense that is peaking at the right time, and can almost score at will when it really wants to... and the defense, for various reasons, can't hold on to a lead.

You don't honestly think anyone's going to answer Davidson, do you?

As big a detractor of Trgovac as I am, kurb has a valid point.

My favorite offseason "never gonna happen" notion is that Herm Edwards gets let go from the Chiefs and his old friend John Fox asks him to come on board and run the Panther defense, or at least be a "consultant' who ends up running the defense eventually. Herm may not be a great head coach, but he's got a record as a solid (and aggressive) defensive coordinator. That, plus his aggressiveness would help balance Fox's cautiousness.

(no, it won't happen, but I can dream)

Way more likely that if Trgovac is replaced, it's Tim Lewis who gets the call.

Even more likely that nothing happens to Trgivac at all.

Tim Lewis used to be a great DC. He had a terrible time with the New York Giants, but I don't think he's forgotten how to do his job. I'd much rather have Lewis than Trgo. It wouldn't be a dream exchange, but it would probably be an improvement. Somebody just needs to remind him that soft zone doesn't work ever.

who should we get then and from where

Get some DT talent in the draft or FA and leave the coaching staff alone

We've already changed around the players. When is it ever gonna be the coache's fault?

But everyone and their little sister knows and have known that the DTs are the thinnest and weakest link on that defense. Lewis shouldn't be starting, he's a great sub a la Burton was in the day. Kemo does his thing well but they need depth. Badly. And it showed.

Its always 80% players 20% coaching. The coaches are just convenient targets

The players don't choose the scheme. We don't like the scheme.

Who do you want us to bitch about? The players?

So I guess Turdo has yet another excuse to keep his job then. The previous 2 was on injuries.

Remember those threads earlier this year where some people were actually trying to say that we had an elite defense? And of course when anyone tried to talk some sense into these people, they weren't "real" fans. LOL. Where are those punks now?

Statistically, we did have a very good defense in the beginning of the season before the bye week. Whether this was from strength of schedule, who knows. All I know is that I have had to refill my hemorrhoid medication and buy a new bottle of pepto for the last 6 Sundays, and it's getting expensive.

Trgo of course, however I see no reason why a great defensive coach like Fox couldn't call the defensive signals the rest of the year starting now.
