Defense can't get off field on 3rd down...


Recommended Posts

I am tired of getting excited about the Run Defense, stuffing the run only to see the pass coverage fail so miserably at getting off the field on 3rd down.

What is it about our secondary and/or scheme that constantly leaves guys open?

would you rather them give up 30 points like some of the more agressive defenses today?

The obvious answer is "gigantic cushions when they're really not needed" (i.e. Jackson's first down catch on 3rd and 4 when Rogers was playing 10 yards off for no reason). With the athletic personnel we have, I fail to see how we don't bring more pressure and force QB's to make quick decisions.

The D-line played well today, an extra blitzer or 2 on third down would work wonders.
