    I have a feeling Gregg Williams is going to change things on the defense that will bring much better results if Jerry Gray slips up once the regular season starts.In fact i know there is no way Williams will sit there and watch things get bad and not want to change whatever is going wrong on the defense.If you ask me i think the reason the defense has been subpar is not the players themselves but the defensive playcalling by Jerry Gray.

    Playing 10 yards off the wide receivers and the bend don't break offense are a lot of the reasons we suck on defense and one of the main reasons i think Gregg Williams was called in to help out.Williams needs to get up in Gray's face and let him know his gameplan is junk.This team could look totally different on defense if the playcalling was changed.

    In fact San Francisco went through something similar and once the coaching was changed the 49ers were able to finally break through on defense.I think they were 15th one year then the next year they were 2nd and they had the same players on defense the only difference was the coaching was changed.Lots of times teams already have the players for a good defense but the defense ends up sucking mainly due to playcalling or coaching not being right.

    Its possible we might already have some of what it takes to be a good defense but the crappy playcalling and the clueless coordinator(Gray) both need to be changed.Luckily for us we already have our next defensive coordinator(Williams) ready to take over if the gameplan doesn't bring the desired results.

    Our coaching staff is lackluster, we have a lot of talent with potential on defense... I feel like I say that every year though.

    I think the defense will perform much better in game one. We are seeing some pre-season competitions and vanilla schemes.

    One series on the Bengals I did see what I think we're going to see in regular season. We had 10 in the box. Dalton checked out of a run but we had so much penetration his timing was off. That made me feel pretty good about what I THINK we're going to be doing.

    I definitely think we'll see more blitzing and tighter coverage once the season starts. I think we'll see Brown and Ayers blitzing a lot and good penetration from our D-Line.


    We've actually been getting pretty good pressure up front so far. Rarely do you see our D-Line getting stood up and the penetration stopping. We're getting a good push and we've been getting quite a few pressures. We've been getting gashed by the run game though and we're a second too late on some plays.


    I still have faith in the D. I think they're too talented.

    It's possible, but I think our secondary just isn't that good. We have decent role players, but not that one guy who can change a game. I think if we move Verner to safety and get a legit #1 corner next season we can be good again. I really like our front 7. J Mac is not a true #1 and got beat consistently by Sanu which doesn't bode well when we play actually good WR's.

    Cannot discuss play calling until the regular season. Teams do not always make logical play calls in the preseason as they want to try specific things out with specific players. Also, the playbook is watered down.

    While I agree, this year the offensive calling will be new/different with Loggains, and the D will hopefully have some influence from Williams. If there was ever a year to expect a legit change in play calling, this would be it.
