Breaking down why our defense is bad

Maybe, I have no way to know.

All I know is I was excited to see him in his first year in Philly....bust.

Excited to see him here, but he has big problems disguising his schemes and generating pressure without biltzing.

Same issues that he had in Philly.

I think Rivera has implied that more than once....

And in Philly....his last year his D generated 34 turnovers which was 3rd best in the NFL. He wasn't JJ.....and he didn't have much talent vs prior years. But he was flat out scapgoated. Reid had to find something.

3rd in takeaways is what you want in this league. Who wouldn't take that. His Philly tenure wasn't what his firing suggested. problem with McD....he only knows the JJ approach. Never implemented that here. We don't run it.

Thats not really true. The scheme is supposed to get the players in the right position so they can make plays. If your not in the right position and the offense knows whats coming then I dont care if you have the 85 Bears D, its not going to work.

It can work the other way around too, and I think it does more often.

Talent compensates for scheme more often than a scheme can compensate for talent.

My God, Nakamura looks like he's waiting to return a punt. That's sad, totally sad.

Too much break downs.

Let me make it short and simple: Rivera

Only picture you needed to show was one of the many where our CBs are giving a 15 yard cushion to the WR on 3rd and 2.

I'm not buying the notion that we lack talent. I blame the scheme and the game plan. Players have to make plays, I understand...that applies more to the offense, especially the o line. But when you don't change your scheme at all and play a well coached team your are asking to get burned and that is just what happened. We have starter quality at every position except DE2, FS, and a rookie from a nonSEC school at CB2 . A very good HC and DC could have success with our talent level. We just have coaches that have their heads up their arses.

Hurney may not be the best and he's had some busts, but for god's sake there are literally dozens of unknown gems in the NFL that contribute and play well on GOOD teams in this league...role players they are called...many of them are UFAs.

How come we don't see that happening on this team? We have just as good prospects as any other team.

1. We have never had success at developing talent. 2 RR and McD ( and even Chud this season) don't what the HELL they are doing.

It's not talent...it's coaching!

The first picture is very disturbing. For one, not too many teams throws the ball deep when backed up on their own 20. Secondly, NY is only in a 2 WR set.

What the hell!

Plain and simple, pass rush sucks. If Eli Manning threw more under duress, the back four would be able to make more plays as they will be less accurate.

The key to this game was the defensive line just like the last game. Last week they did a pretty good job against the run and a great job bothering Brees. This week they did nothing to contain the run and Manning had all day to throw. Norman can't do anything against a QB with that much time. If we could've generated the same pressure as we did against Brees we would have seen a different game entirely.

This defense can scheme all it wants but it's going to come down to line play in every game. Don't claim the team can blitz either because that just makes it easier on a good QB. Pressure from just the front four is the ultimate advantage in this league. It's always been important, but with good QBs everywhere it is a necessity.

well the defense played poor because the DC was so scared of manning hitting them with the deep pass, that he played a prevent defense all night, telling the db's to play off the receivers and to tackle them in front of them. Giving them the short stuff. Problem is, Manning is a great qb and picked the secondary apart.
