I have no idea why everyone hates Manusky. We don't have a shut down corner or a pass rush threat, yet our defense is still solid year in and year out. I love Manusky and I think if the new coach keeps the 3-4, he will stay.
but why couldn't Manusky try Clements at safety--even in preseason just to see how it works out. Clements playing 10 yards off every receiver is not good.
There had to be some corner on some good teams practice squad the team could have brought in---that would be Baalke.
why not try Bowman at OLB---i think he might be a good pass rusher with his speed.
why not try the 4-3--we had enough guys to play two DT's--with maybe lawson, willis, spikes as the LB's--maybe even try Mays as one of the lb's.
I just feel the defense was not all that good and they really tried nothing new.
I would like to draft a pass rusher, a couple of corners and go to a 4-3.
