Run the Ball.


Play Physical Defense.




Please tell me how Trgo is a yes man when we played Soft zone and our CBs were a mile from the Receivers the past two years? Thats the Damn exact opposite to Physical Defense right there! This could be the reason why no coaches are getting signed this year..........

At this point I place just as much blame on Fox as Turd. If Fox saw something he didn't like, he should have fixed it. He was a DC, he should be able to get the defense he wants played. If Turd wasn't up to it he should have canned him. But, Fox didn't can him and our defense is now middle of the pack or worse (nearly dead last 2nd half of season).

I say the new style has something to do with an overeaction to the way offenses played the defense after the superbowl season, with tons of three step drops.

Turning this around, Fox has seen what is happening in game preps, is on the headset to hear the calls, and has to be aware whether or not the D is meeting his expectations. In most people's view, the D has under performed for at least 2 years. Why keep a guy who can't get his staff to do what he wants?

Been thinking about this. Maybe we have been blaming the wrong person. Maybe Peppers was bringing the team down. Just like Jenkins before him.

Fox is too conservative to take any chance. So instead of a 20% chance of giving up a big play, he'll go with the 50% chance of giving up smaller play after smaller play and end up giving up a touchdown anyway.

IMO the guy's no better than Jim Fassel as a HC, but in a different way. His conservativeness is unyieldy and limiting his potential to be the best out there.

That was kinda my thinking around mid season....two years ago.:) I'll be suprised if anything changes....I really hate this brand of football but we did go 12-4.

We had Trgo in 03 with Manning mauling wr's at the line of scrimmage playing physical, knowing why that has changed is a good question and everyone's speculation on here is getting old.
