His first year, he took over a squad that was built for him and they played as good as any 49er defense I've seen in 10 years or more. The end of last year and so far this year, they look terrible.
Thought the defense played well today, considering the aldon smith situation and a couple iffy penalties.
Not sure if terrible is the right word, subpar is
No. Subpar is not even correct. They played very solid against a good ball control offense that makes few mistakes. The defense was good today. Everything else was s**t.
This. For the amount of time the defense was on the field, they held pretty well. Brown can suck it though.
I completely disagree.. The defense was and has been bad since last year. The Colts had close to if not over 100 yards rushing by halftime, there was little to no pass rush, open receivers constantly, dumb penalties left and right.. Yes, our offense played worse but the defense is a huge problem. Only hero of this game is Frank Gore and the coaching staff left him to rot after the first quarter.
