    I would say it's safe to say that we are more talented this year than we have been in the rescent past. Defensively, anyway... So, I would expect to see a noticable difference in our D this year. If we don't then I hold Fisher totally resposible seeing how he's supposivley a defensive minded coach. Schwartz works for him and Fish has the final say when it comes to the D. Period...

    Like I've said many times, keeping Schwartz around is going to be the demise of Fisher. I remember when we were all watching Tank his first couple of years and just glowing with how aggressive he was, and now all of a sudden Tank sucks? I believe it is a direct reflection of Schwartz and his inability to put his players in successful opportunities. Remember the crap DBs we used to have, but still managed to get by?? now we have some very promising young DBs and every game they are just hung out to dry by our genuis Schwartz. The only difference in guys like Nathan Vasher and Michael Waddell is that Waddell was hung out to dry while Lovie Smith made sure Vasher was protected and put him in opportunistic positions.

    I hate Schwartz and it's no surprise we haven't seen any improvement or development from every defensive player drafted since he took over. I even believe that Schwartz has a lot to do with the underacheivement of Andre Woolfolk, there it is, I said it.

    I think our D has sucked due to talent more than anything else. I'm not sure I know what crap DB's we had in the past that helped up get by. We also had and awsone Dline an good CB's at the time. Compared to starting two rooks at Corner along with slow LB's and almost no help at safety. There is no way to compare last years team.... I've heard it all and don't really care. No one will ever convince me that we could've had any more than an average D last year at best, no matter who was coaching what. Does that mean we couln't have been better. NO! We certainly could've played much better and coaching certainly had something to do with it. It is my opinion that we were playing most games with less talent on our D and less play makers than most teams. That being said, this isn't a cry for Shwartz. If there isn't improvement this year he or someone needs to go.

    no matter how much talent is on D it STILL don't cost nuthin' to be aggressive and finish plays and make tackles.

    So if Swartz is gone, Who is our new D-coordinator?


    And I highly disagree with whats-his-name's comment on us having no talent last year on Defense, We had tremendous talent: Bulluck, Haynesworth, VANDEN BOSCH!, waddell could have been a good corner but was ruined by coaching, he was very fast, Thompson just needed a little work and could have been a premier Safety. You know we had some of the most talent in the league but just couldn't harness it.

    I would not go as far as you Spinnaker but I do agree.

    The D lacks heart not talent.

    Two rookie corners, slow linebackers in a divsion where the top team passes. You make it work. Cut it any way you like it is a combination of lack of talent and poor coaching. By the way Fisher was a ST guy, not a great DB.

    I would say that Dave McGinness would be the next Defense Co ordinator. Atleast from the current staff.

    I wouldn't be surprised if we tried to signed away someone from another team, depending on if Fisher is around or not.
