    Funny, the Jags adjusted to losing a Pro Bowl DT (Stroud) last time we played them. Why can't we adjust?

    First of all, Stroud wasn't having the impact on the Jags defense Haynesworth was. Second, they brought in a pretty good DT to replace him. Third, he had much better talent around him.

    We'll adjust but our success will be directly tied to how well the players execute today.

    But you don't find it sad that we can't have a good defence without having absolute best DT in the league? I do.

    And Jeff, why didn't we bring in Jackson? Surely you can't blame the lack of talent acquisitions on the players...

    Drastically change up the plays and play aggressive. (I'm assuming Harper is starting opposite Finny)

    Inside LB blitzes. CB blitzes. S blitzes. 5 DL sets. Vary it up constantly. Definately have some plays with double coverage on Ocho. Going into that hybrid 3-4 looking setup we did earlier in the season. Basically attempt to make Palmer unsure of where the pressure will come from, and when Ocho will be doubled or not. Hopefully the pressure helps attack the run game as well.


    What do I think will happen...

    Traditional 4-3 zone plays over and over and over and over.


    Hope I'm wrong or somebody on D has a career day.

    I guess that's the price we pay for having the most dominating defensive tackle in football. We relied on him to much and we are paying the price for it now.:irked:

    haha. I played him during Johnsons injury to cover one of my rb's bye.

    we must win this game injuries aside. If we do not win today we have no business in the wc hunt.

    Maybe the training staff didn't rub enough Nacho Cheese on Fat Al's hammy before the game...

    Schwartz' defense is offering all the resistance of wet toilet paper....
