Point being are weak spots are not getting corrected either. Brown is garbage, Lewis is old, Parys is useless..etc etc Granted we held Sea very well, but they scored on a few fluke blown plays...we cant have that happen. And KC ran all f**king day on us and I didn't seen any adjustments being made.

Yea...lets fire him too because our defense had one bad game.
No -- but they haven't had one "bad game" either.
In fact -- they've been pretty terrible.
There's been a noticeable falloff in the play of the front seven -- and I still can't figure out why.
Our secondary wasn't all that great to begin with -- but those weaknesses were masked by a good D-Line and some great linebacker play.
But that was last year. This year? The play of that front seven hasn't been nearly as good.
Why? If I knew the answer why -- I'd be the Head Coach!
We were one of the top defenses before this week's game. Revis gave up a few big plays last year - so does that mean he is no good? This is the NFL - there are going to be some blown coverages, they are going to be some points scored. Baltimore Ravens just gave up a no name RB almost 150 yards on the ground this week. This happens to every team - every great defense.
Let's not go ahead and fire everybody. We finished near the top last year in defense and we will likely finish near the top this year. We have had some trouble in the past with super-fast RBs, just like Peyton Manning has had trouble with 3-4 defenses in general. Doesn't mean you cut him because he has failed to make the adjustments.
Lewis and Brown have always been liabilities in coverage, I have been asking for faster DB's for 2 years. Clements and Brown wont be here for very long, each for different reasons. Manusky isn't making the adjustments or personnel moves he should be. Our fastest guy on D isn't on the field, and he will be a SS. We need more speed and better replacements.
