Come Feburary I will be a huge Schwartz guy - same as it ever was
I haven't noticed that trend amongst posters here.
when the D gets gouged for 1200ish yards in the last three games I blame the DC
The last game was all backups anyway, that doesn't really count IMO.
I think the backups attend the same meetings as the starters. and it was backups on backups and the Titan backups were no more motivated than the starters were.
still 1200ish yards over final 3 games is not inspiring defensive play.
How many of those games included our best two D-linemen?
S-Dog believes in players ... if he thinks he does not have the personnel the team suffers. Might be his crux but I do not know many coaches who do not believe in the players ability that will be aggressive
What's your point? Has your argument against Schwartz gotten so weak that your resorting to just pointing at three games, one of which didn't count and the one that REALLY counted we won with defense.
continuation argument. See three games without FA last season ect....
So is Josh McDaniels a bad offensive coordinator because without Tom Brady their best offensive player (as Big Al is our best defensive coordinator) the team lost five less games this year?
So now were up to six games huh? If your going to nit pick individual games and not look at the body of work and how much the defense has improved over the last three years than your just reaching. Fact is you can't win ever game and you can't hold every team to 100 total yards which I guess is what you expect us to do.
I expect the DC to change his approch, even mid game or middle of a drive, if what he is currently doing is not working. Jimbelina has proven that he would rather die the death of 1000 cuts than risk allowing a big play vs getting off the field.
Greg Williams, who is not gods gift to DCs, was willing too take that risk. Usually paid off with a punt.
Constantly allowing drives to linger puts immence pressure on the Titan O and allows the opponent to flip field position and control the clock.
Again, giving up two 16 play drives to the cows only put 3 cow points on the board. Those 3 points were not as important as the hole it dug for our O and the oppertunities it denied the O
But Jimbelina bragged about only allowing the 3 points on those drives in his post game interview
