Replying to Bigger Problem: Offensive Coordinator or Defensive Coordinator?

Both seem to want to change things when things are going well. Chud goes all read option and McD all soft prevent zone...

I think it all flows from the Head Coach though...

You're right, on all accounts...

The best defense is a good offense.

The offense is the reason the team is struggling.

The defense plays great, then gets tired/worn out from being on the field to much.

D needs a heart too. We all saw them quit in OT on Sunday. They werent even attempting to tackle. I dont blame Thomas Davis for crying and being emotional after the game, he knows his unit is pathetic. CJ knows guys arent studying and focusing. Thats why went on his lil twitter rant.

the d doesn't have heart?

You're right. It wasn't the defense that sparked the change in the game from Captain's pick six.

The defense was wore out. You'd be to spending so much of the second half on the field, cause the offense can't sustain anything.

Thanks for the comedy.

Just because I did not post here...does not mean I have I not been an avid follower...in fact, I starting viewing the Huddle in 2009.

And beyond that, I was referencing what a previous poster was saying.

ok but if you were here last year, the majority was high on the offense and low on the defense and it was based on performance. in fact, the momentum gave everyone high hope that this year, with an improved defense, and an exciting offense, people, including myself were expecting a 8-10 win season. it was obvious last year the defense, which was decimated, needed to improve in order to win games.

i'm not at all saying the defense is good enough to be a playoff team, although the points allowed would suggest otherwise, we certainly have holes, but we have an offense this year that can't consistently score even 14 points, much less a reasonable amount in the low 20's which would cover up our holes still in the defense. with an offensive line that has trouble protecting and getting push, wide receivers that are still dropping open passes and a nonexistent run game, our offense is certainly a major problem. and then the constant 3 and outs, is demoralizing to the defense.

You could see it in their faces in OT. I could literally see our defenders going "I's tired boss! I give up! I give up! I quit! Winning takes too much energy. Losing is less taxing on the body! Here Martin, see this running lane, run right thru it!"

We made Freeman who was struggling most of the day look like Brady in comeback mode. Pantherclaw, we all know our D is too tired to be concerned with winning football games. They've only had the energy to win 1 for us in 2 years. When we had Pep, Rucker, Minter and those guys, our defense won us hella games. Those were the good old days, when you could trust the Panthers D, now it feels like they're working for the other team at the end of games.

King Troll should be his username. How he has stayed here while countless others have been banned is beyond me.

Of course they were, scrubs tire out the quickest in pro sports. Its why teams in basketball that are loaded with talent COAST for 3 quarters then "turn it on" in the 4th. They know in crunch time the scrubs will be too tired to win.

Jimmy Johnson says "fatigue" makes cowards of us all in his Football Life. Well in most 4th quarters, our defense is mighty cowardly.

you're horrible at this game. everyone knows it but you. keep coddling our quarterback, hold him to your bosom, protect him from what everyone says about him. damn i sure hope he is mentally tougher than you. 14 points should be enough to win in this league right? not even "the good ole days" defense would have survived this miserable onslaught of ineptness displayed by our offense. i would hate to have seen what would happen without the spark supplied by our defense that finally got our offense kinda moving the ball to put up a whopping 14 points on a far less than average buccs defense.

You keep tryna make this about our QB. Its not. Our defense quits at the end of games. Our defense lays down for mediocre QBs. Tell me what games our defense has won for us the past 2 years sir? It shouldnt be hard right?
