Screw the offense, what happened to our supposedly great defense

WTF!!!! WE started out so promising, now we are ranked 22nd in the league.

Everyone is talking about our O-Line not blocking or not moving the ball or we should switch to the spread. How about our defense stop some f**ken teams and hold them to 10 points or so, and actually give our team a chance.

I know we need some changes on Offense, but defense is where it is at to help a struggling offense and we just dont got it right now,

WTF, happened!!!!!!
it sucks, that's what happened

Injuries. And they were overrated to begin with.
Rodgers torched us, and our tackling is piss poor right now
Our supposedly great defense, needs a better than mediocre pass rush to be consistently successful. It obviously hasn't had that thus far, hence the inconsistency.
Nate Clements is out. He's one of our best tacklers in the secondary. And yes he's also one of our better cover guys although he's not perfect at that and never has been. That still doesn't take away the fact he is an upgrade over a lot of the guys we have.

But the WZers swear up and down we should cut him...

Now you see what we have without him in the secondary.
They're on the field too much. If they didn't have to spend the whole game on the field, then maybe they would be a little more effective when they are in.
When you are not getting much help from your offense and time of posession is as lopsided as it was, you can only do so much.

I wanna say that they were on the field too much...and they were. But Grant wast gashing them for 5,6,8 yards a carry in the first couple of drives. Dunno what happened there.

Manusky needs to changes some stuff up cause what he did last sunday didnt work.

Alright I've had it. Time for heads to roll... Where's the water boy clearly he's not keeping the D refreshed!

Where to start? Let's see, we couldn't tackle to save our lives. T Brown plays so far off the receiver he might as well have been in a different field. Pass rush sucked against an O-line that has done nothing but give up sacks all year. Our previous strength, against the run, has disappeared. Did I say we couldn't tackle for $hite? Game plan a failure against their offense; we looked confused. Enough?

ding dong. It goes both ways, get off the field by stopping the other team. Either by forcing them to punt or by turnovers!

It's hard to claim TOP when the D was being manhandled from the opening kickoff. The D contributed to their own TOP problems. And yes, Simpletary had our best CB returning kick offs and he got hurt.
