Why is it that this defense looks alot like chuck cecil? Why do we always play base and mostly zone and put the safeties back so we " wont give up the big play"? I would drather give up the big play than watch these long scoring drives thats what wears out your defense. If we cannot get to the qb with four bring 5 if that doesn't work bring 6. But do not sit there and give up 350 to 450 yards passing to every good qb you face and let them leave the game with a clean jersey. I know you cannot blitz all the time but how about some of the time? Akeem Ayers that is what he does really well but we have him in coverage. Drafted zack brown because he is fast let him blitz or better yet let him man up on the TE. Sure do not ask griffin to do it. Griffin cant tackle and is not physical so we make him the strong safety. ( and pay the guy wow!) As fans do not ask us to get loud up 41 to 27 with 1:18 to go and then give us the mustang prevent defense! We are 31st in league on defense and we stay the same old course. Base 4-3 zone, pick us apart and wonder why the defense is on the field the whole game. No pressure. I thought we, based on the last few drafts, would show some hybrid looks and some 3-4. At least the first 6 games last year we brought some pressure before we went back to the old ways against the bengals at home last year and it got us beat. That base defense has opposing qb's licking their chops. Look how atlanta played SD then re-watch how we did it.
