I will really appreciate him when we stop giving up last minute drives.

Yep, needs to stop missing tackles, blowing assignments and losing contain!

I was one of the ones that hinted after year one that maybe we should look to make a change at DC, now like someone earlier said, if we change head coaches I kinda hope he gets a chance to remain DC.

To be fair, I think he has grown a lot himself as a coach the last two years.

Bring in a offensive minded guy and it may help Cam some, but the defense will suffer badly.

 

there are way too many examples to bring up that refute this

Lol what was it we used to call him? Sean McDumbass? McDerp? I honestly can't even remember.

Defense has come a loooong way since 2011. Granted we had no LBers, no DTs, Hardy wasn't the Kraken yet, and no secondary outside of Gamble.

So what ! Those are just excuses. No seriously we could have retooled the defense and they still could be playing like crap. It shows he is a talented coordinator if given the tools.

I dont know how much is him, and how much is Rivera.

This is Rivera's defense, no doubt.

 

He has feilded #1 defenses for 2 different teams as a co-ordinator. Both Chicago and San Diego.

The real winner is the team that scopes up Rivera as a DC after he gets canned here.

So many accolades for our defense is a good thing.  But I would like to wait and see how we do against some of the better offenses in the league before I am convinced.  If the saints and patriots torch us, then its much ado about nothing. 

 

Excuse me, where is NE's offense
