Breakdown of yards given up by skill position last year.

I am sure the team has all these kind of breakdowns and likely dozens more.  Lets hope that bringing in all of those free agents and our draft picks addressed some of these issues as well as a number of others like giving up playing a soft zone and giving up way too many passing third downs, failing to be stout in third and short and so forth. Plus my subjective opinion was that we were more stout in the last 4 games versus earlier in the year.  That is until late when we went back to a soft zone and gave up a number of tds and plenty of yards.

a small part of the TE thing is scheme.  It's inevitable that the middle's going to be a little more open. 

 

That said, facing Graham and Gonzalez twice is just a fact that, for another year, the team will have to endure.

if we take pressure off the LBs by shoring up the interior of the DL, we allow them the freedom to take care of the middle of the field.

 

i don't like having a couple studs in the division at a certain position being an excuse for getting abused by that position. if we play them, we have to find a way to stop them. having gonzo and graham is no excuse for being so bad statistically or otherwise against TEs. we have to counter it somehow, not shrug our shoulders fox style with a good ol' "it is what it is".
