after we stopped LT, AP, Forte and Turner? didn't we lead the league in rushing defense even after going against these guys? did we change our scheme or did everybody else figure out what we were doing? ........ bring on Herm!!!

I seemed to notice a lot of successful cutback runs against us in the 2nd half of the season. Our linebackers over pursued leaving no one on the backside of the play to stop the cutback except for corners and safeties. I also noticed alot of Beason's tackles in the last half of the season were after the running back had run past him and he'd grab them from behind. Our linebackers just rarely seemed to be in the right gap to actually stop a play before they got 5+ yards.
