Not really, defensively we haven't brought the same thing every week.....hasn't always worked but there is clear effort and you can see a defensive staff trying to figure out things.
Also, players have let the D down....they often have been out in position to make plays and failed. I got no issue with the D coaching this year.....they still are trying to work around big holes at S (which isn't easy) and have a rookie CB.
Two things good defenses have in common. Experience and strong S play. We are getting the first, but are lacking in the second. Which is why I think we go S early in next years draft. I just believe we are a strong FS from actually being pretty good.
On defense we are growing. Offense? Not so much. Which is why so many folks are frustrated. They just knew this team, with this offense, was headed places. It did not happen as planned, so they are upset.
We are 21 games in. We are better than we were in game 1. But we are no where near our ceiling.
