Man, think about how we could have gotten Mike Nolan if we fired this bum at the end of last year's offseason.

Rob Chudzinski said. "You're playing a good team like New York and you have to be firing on all cylinders. We were a little bit off."

I was fully supportive of McDermott entering this year. After all, he didn't have much to work with last year. But we seem to have regressed, especially in the back 7, in the first 3 games this year. I just don't understand how you can add in essentially 2 and 1/2 (Kuechly, Beason, and the reduced-role Davis) first round picks at LB, a new 2nd corner (albeit a rookie) and a new FS, and actually look worse in some ways.

Atlanta is going to be very telling.

Blah blah blah. I feel like Bill Murray in Groundhog Day, we lose and our coaching staff says the same tired crap. With Rivera it's always "this is a process, we are a young team and things take time" With Sean Mcd it's "I was very disappointed with our performance, we will focus on what we do well". It will be the same lines after the Falcon loss this Sunday as well.

Shouldn't sound fundamentals be a given for an NFL team? If we are focusing on fundamentals, it means that it was not addressed appropriately in training camp and preseason.

This is not a disciplined team. That's a reflection of the head coach first and foremost. Ask the Giants if they are a disciplined football team under Coughlin? They know he will ream their butts if they screw up and don't work hard to correct it. I'll bet you they didn't come out and say they needed to go back to fundamentals after they lost their week 1 game to Dallas. They are professionals and they are expected to act and play like it.

Rivera doesn't run a very tight ship...let's face it. If these players thought they were going to get their jocks handed to them in practice and meetings after a performance like that, they'd be a lot more disciplined on the field. Mental mistakes like shoddy tackling, missed assignments, and general indifference on the sideline are not seen on quality teams.

We are as talented as anyone...but we are about as disciplined as a JV high school team. Get it together! You can bet Atlanta is looking at our game tape and finding endless ways to exploit our undisciplined lines.

Well, there is no excuse for the pooty O and ST.....but defensively we lack talent at the positions that matter.

BLAH BLAH BLAH McDermNUTS. U aint gonna see no improvement playing DBs 20 yards off the line scrimmage again. What the hell has this group ever done "well"? They are still trying to get out the craphole. Man this guy needs his head checked.

To me its pretty easy on defense get pressure on the qb and on offense you have to block.We do not have talent for a 4 man rush so bring what it takes.I am very disappointed we drafted we drafted a very high 2nd round pick for the OL and we have regressed.When will Hurney learn?

This is sooooooooo common sense

We obviously have guys that can get to the QB in Frank, Keiser, Applewhite. Find ways to just bring the pressure. We have freaking 2, not 1 but 2 defensive guys...

silatolu was poo his first game but he's played extremely well both games after that. with the full lineup in we looked outstanding against new orleans. against NYG we were missing bell, who i think is more instrumental than we give him credit for.

McDerp wasn't planning on teaching fundamentals until the Bye week, but due to a change of plans they will be taught early.

Thanks, Sean.

McDermott
"We're ready to get back to fundamentals and doing what we do well".

I read that, and asked myself, what is it exactly that this defense does well? I couldn't come up with an answer.



Truth hurts.


I can only think of...damn I can't think of anything.

You could tell by the way our defense tried to tackle that they have never gone over fundamentals.

Flailing recklessly toward the opponent does not equate to tackling.

We aren't athletic enough on defense. We don't have anyone who can take over on big plays. Our MLB is not 100%. Our corners play soft. Our safeties play 30 yds deep. We lack speed all across the board. And the one good athlete we do have (kuechly) gets taken off the field every other play which is ridiculous to me...Davis only plays a few snaps a series...

We are hurtin on D

I said this D was gonna struggle before the season. I hate being right 60% of the time every time
