I know he is our best tackler chasing people down, but if he can either put pressure or just get to the qb then we won't have to worry about cahsing anyone down. I am just getting irritated with figuring out an opposing team to late in the game to do anything about. Especially after 10 days to prepare for them!
K, so after failing for the entire game... What happened when they still had a chance to redeem themselves with a stop on GB's final drive??? They failed miserably, and GB had a 5 minute drive to end the game... The defense sucks....
Were they loading up the box to stop the, NO. Did they have their corners play tight coverage on Green Bay's receivers, NO. Why, because their game plan in these situations are horrible. The defense did play a little better in the 2nd half but when it came time to make a big stop they couldn't do it because they were not in the right position to do so. They need to just stop playing scared and impose their will on their opponents.
