What does everyone think about the D

we allowed what, 6 points off 2 turnovers?

eh, not the best showing but they made some definite improvements, especially to the run D. To prevent any team from scoring a TD, particularly when they get the ball so close to the goal line, is a good thing imo.

to the posters concerned about our line play should keep in mind that the jets have 3 pro bowl caliber players on their o line. the giants didn't destroy their entire o line they just took advantage of a guy who looks like he doesn't belong in the nfl period

I thought the D looked okay... need to crank up the pass rush.

I don't know if this has been mentioned yet because honestly I didn't sift through every page but let me say one thing about the secondary. Whenever a QB (any professional QB) can drop back with no pressure to speak of and is allowed to step in a throw and allowed to take time to find an open receiver, no cornerback, safety, or linebacker can cover the receivers. The problem with the defense right now is a lack of pass rush, plain and simple. Even mediocre corners and safeties can look good when the defensive line can get pressure or hurry throws. I watched Sanchez drop back and just stand there and make good throws, I also watched Schaub do the same thing in game one. Preseason doesn't matter but pass rush does. Maybe they aren't stunting or taking it easy so maybe it isn't a big deal but I can guarantee that we'll know within the first two or three drives against Tampa how bad it will be.

Edit: Ok this has been mentioned, and quite often. But the point stands.

not that bad considering we didn't really play our starting DTs or show any real blitzing that's actually a legit part of our schemes.

i'm not concerned. we won't be great but we'll be ok, and that's an improvement.

We aren't what we haven't done. We aren't a JJ43 blitzing scheme until they actually are one....

At this point, not sure we are going to be that.

We better find another corner from other teams' cuts, at least someone who is servicable. Norman may pan out, but is still a rookie. Even if he starts and does an adequate job, we are still an injury away from Cap being back at #2 corner. This simply cannot be!

I think the coaching staff has spent an exuberant amount of time looking at the defense in the offseason. I have very little doubts that we will be significantly improved.

So we wont be running a JJ43, because we didn't use a lot of it in a preseason game??? Guess our offense wont be different, than we've shown so far in preseason either???

No, but we are playing a very vanilla D right now with very little stunts. 4 man basic front the majority of the time.

A team as young as we are should be practicing these stunts And blitz packages. "Saving it for the regular season" is good for week 1. After week 1 the D is on film. Holding back and saving stuff for the season is an offensive move. Our D needs to practice what they will be playing.

I dont know yet. Beason isnt back and its not the regular season yet. I think our safeties will be better and as the season goes along, they will get better.
