Kuech the Sneak

What does everyone think about the D

84 posts in this topic

Thin line between love and hate...Giants let Sanchez go 9/11(81% completion rate) and 59 yards. thats 5.3 per attempt without Holmes in the lineup. They also got to abuse Wayne Hunter. We let him get 11/23 (61% completion rate) and 6.8 per attempt.

Cam also put us in a terrible position with his fumble and we held them to a field goal when they only had to go 12 yards.

We also had 2 3 and outs. While we did not like look a pro bowl defense by any means, I'm not upset about anything other than Munnerlyns penalties. We tried a new look with Kearse in at DT and it didn't help. Also wish Johnson could have gotten more pressure but whatever. Gonna re-watch later and have a better breakdown but no reason to upset right now imo. I'll definitely find more to nitpick when I go back and watch but at this point I'm not really that concerned.

Defense looks improved form last year. Not drastically but we don't need drastically. We just need adequate. Kuechly and Davis as third down LB look like an awesome combination at this point. Can't really judge the secondary since we played a lot of soft zones it appeared. But run defense looks ok. With both Beason and Keuchly on the field I can see it being really hard to run on us.

They did a rather mediocre job against a team that can't score TDs. Our opponents should smell blood. Probably going to have to score a lot of points this year.

Improved but one that will give up big chunks and make mental errors in the secondary

We need a more consistent push without having to blitz a million times (which seem to be picked up far too easily by offenses far too often)

I really hope we don't keep using Captain against #2s out there. I'm gonna be mad if come the Saints* or Falcons he's against the likes of Henderson & Julio Jones

We haven't turned things loose yet. We are still being vanilla to some degree. Lets wait until the regular season to see what happens. How many times do we need to say that this is preseason and doesn't count. No need to show teams what we will do until the season starts.

The jet oline was holding all.night. So had to judge the d line.

Our defense is getting better.

Rex Ryan. Hate him or love him the guy is a master at D

it sure does help when one of your defenders last name is Island.

couldn't agree more but atleast the defense looks like it will put up some resistance even if it doesn't always produce the results we want to see. IMO the d gradually improves as the season progresses provided we avoid injuries at key positions

Eh, it's preseason.

Kuechly's a beast though.
