    Did I have a blackout? Am I living in a parallel (sp) universe? I swear I've seen this EXACT thread before. I mean from GoT having to explain SGWB, to the holes in the defense to references to BB and the Freak...

    I'm not searching for it, but I swear I'm having a wicked case of deja vu' (and not the good kind, with 1000 beautiful women and 3 ugly ones)

    What do you mean? Explain your comment about skewed stats.

    I love Greg Williams, and I think he was a better D.C. than Schwartz, but to say the good years that our defense has had under J.S. were all because of Williams' philosophy and the bad years were all Schwartz's fault is insane. Do you think Williams could have had our defense at the top of the league either of the last two years?

    No, I'm not saying that at all. I just think the 'attitude' of our defense for the first couple of seasons under Schwartz was a reflection of Williams. I don't think Williams would have had a top defense if he were our DC last year, but I DO think we would have been much more aggressive and at least given our D a chance at changing some games. Schwartz is just too finesse for me. It works in some places, I just prefer a bad *** mean defense that will punish people.

    I think that is as much a reflection of our players as of the coaching style. Most of the guys on our defense now are so young that they don't have time to be mean, they are just trying to figure out what their assignment is for the next play. I will grant you this though, if the defense doesn't show marked improvement this year, with the recent experienced additions, then I will be the first to lay the blame at the coaching staff's feet.

    If you can idnetify the season Williams left as DC from this list then quite simply you should understand why MbSGWB is such a soul crushing disaster as DC - dehr Schwartzie is the anchor that is dragging the franchise towards the bottom of the NFL in D.

    in 2002 and 2003 the Titans managed to win DESPITE MbSGWb being DC. Truly a testemant to McMVP and EG.

    GoT: Where are you getting your stats? I'm just curious because I haven't been able to find anywhere to get team stats that are very detailed or go back very far. Thanks.

    Da Schwartz is not with us, he's ON us!

    This is one of those calls I got right. I've been saying for a few years this guy was a dud...OK, a below avg DC and still some people don't believe it!

    Amazing!

    NO DC could have put us at #1 D the last 2 years, but Gregg Williams would have put us MUCH higher up. Case in point, 2 years ago Williams had LESS to work with on Washington and there D was the ONLY reason they were in games. He took guys I'VE never even heard of and got them to produce. The flip side is, we have a lot of talent on this D and what are we getting for it?

    Not much!!!

    Give me a good reason to say Schwartz is a good DC and I have 5 to show you why he's NOT!
