The NFL's # 1 Defense Thread

Everybody blames the offense, and I don't disagree, but our defense hasn't played up to expectations this year, either. In 4 close losses, the defense has failed to make plays when needed to provide wins. Our pass rush isn't there, coverage isn't there, and the D-line isn't keeping players away from Willis so he can make plays. With slightly better defensive play, I'd say we're easily at least a 3-4 win team right now and well in the mix for the division.

Nonsense. Our defense has been put in terrible situations due to turnovers. They've kept us in all those close games, for our offense to screw it up.

Sucks

What about today? Other than Carr's retarded pick (worse than any Smith's turnovers minus his retarded rookie season), this defense had a chance to win so many games this season. Too bad they haven't won one yet.

Really? The D get up over 300 passing yards to Matt Moore?? Is that the offense's fault?

Keep Mays but please get rid of every single DB......
Why do we continue to play the WRs 10-15 yards back, and then blitz? We got picked apart

I like Spencer. I feel part of the reason is Manusky and his scheme/PC. The whole 15 yards off the WR IMO is scheme

Im not 100% sure but IMO its Manuskys scheme

spencer never use to do that
Bend but don't break, but at the same time DBs play aggressive. Final outcome = give up big plays.

oh its the scheme....Carolina spread the field throughout the 4th quarter....and we played Nolan's Big Nickel. With the DBs playing well off the WRs. It is the sheme....we play prevent, and the offense picks us apart, not just us....any team that plays prevent.
What defense? I didn't see any. I saw Clements get faked out of his jock so many times I lost count. Spencer and James were also horrible. Mays is a rookie. I'll give him that. They were getting worked by two rookie receivers. They didn't need Steve Smith.
