Turnovers haven't happened....that's the biggest thing killing them.

Last 4 games against Colts, Texans, ATL & Titans...big difference. Add to the fact that we are giving the ball away more + 3 & outs don't help either.

They can't get any game changing turnovers to swing the game in our favor.

Tenn is a stinker of a team and we gave up 27 points to them. Then we hold Indy to 18 and dont allow a manning TD pass? If we can hold Indy to 18 then we should be able to hold any team down. The defense is tanking.

Come on guys that's not the whole story.

The defense should be able to be a little better against a QB getting his 2nd start of the YEAR.

The D stunk it up just a bit. Even with turnovers, Chris Johnson still had a ridiculous number of yards rushing on the edges.

The Titans scored because we have them the ball 4 times. Take away those turnovers and they most likely wont score that many times and we win.

Huh???? Really? We didn't stop Chris Johnson at all. The DEEP passes to Justin Gage had nothing to do with a turnover.

Turnovers don't help but then again, you can't dimiss that even with a short field for the opposition d/t turnovers or other reasons, the defense is giving up MORE yards per game; exactly 100 yards more a game. That's ALL on the defense.

I know it's easy to blame the worse of two evils but the defense still is evil by not generating any turnovers, zero pass rush when it counts, terrible in coverage in the middle of the field, atrociously bad in short yardage, safety play, now injuries, mental mistakes, etc. And now these guys are tired with no viable bench players. Expect it to get worse.
You have to look at who we played as well. Indy and Houston have two of the best offenses in football. Chris Johnson is one of the best RB's in football. The defense could have played better, but I don't think it was terrible.

When you don't give your D any rest because you just turned the ball over it will f**k up your D.

What f**ked the D was NO PASS RUSH and containment on the edge was POOR. It was a close game before the trun-overs. The fact we were duking it out initially - you know when the defense was fresh? Ridiculous.

I'm not saying turnovers don't make a difference, but again NON-EXISTENT PASS RUSH doesn't get a free pass here.

Just doesn't.

That seattle game was also against a piss poor backup QB who still moved the ball.
