    It’s a fans assumption we can’t add players. No way that true. The Titans will find a way to add on defense.

    Such a titans move. Defence needs a fresh set of eyes in the coaches room and they do this. OC is fine I get it no need to rock the boat, but this defence needs a whole change of playbook and scheme. We were weak on every aspect of defence, coordinators have been sacked for less failings and u turns in performance.

    I wanted to compare the 19' and 20' defensive rosters because I'm not really buying the "lack of personnel" argument for the 20' defensive failures. Either that, or there is a SERIOUS overestimate of the value lost.

    guys on both 19' and 20'
    Daquan Jones, Simmons (late start 19'), Jayon Brown, Evans, Landry, Butler (IR early 19'), AJ25 (hurt 20' and part of 19'), byard, Vaccaro. that's 9 starters.

    backups: Dickerson, Bates, Roberson, Long, Tye Smith (1/2 19', 1/2 20') and Hooker.
    Probably missing some.

    The actual roster differences (starters):
    19' Casey, Woodyard (not really a starter), and Ryan (constantly complained about as a liability in 19' after Aj25 and Butler went down)

    20' Desmond King (late), Clowney, and Beasley (both bums)

    The roster defensively was not all that different and I can't see Woodyard, Casey and Ryan being the difference with these numbers:

    19' - 21st in yds, 12th in pts, 24th against the pass, 12th against the run, and notably 74/204 on 3rd down

    20' - 28th in yds, 24th in pts, 29 against the pass, 19th against the run, and VERY notably 111/214 on 3rd down.

    I’d settle for an ounce of mediocrity.

    This is very true. The main difference was no Pees or Coombs.

    King is a slot guy and Butler an outside guy. Their PFF differential was pretty big in favor of Butler. I would not weaken an already poor secondary like this. Find a way to restructure some contracts, like Butler. Cutting our better players isn’t going to help us.

    I don’t think people are disagreeing that personnel played a role, it surely did. But, the drop off of “good” players is an indication that coaching dropped off as well.

    I will be shocked if we don’t restructure several contracts to get some breathing room. Plus, we won’t know the cap number for another week of so.

    The salary cap isn't real. If Jrob wants to add pieces to the defense he will be able to.

    We need to add a pass rusher in FA and then go rounds 1 - 3 best defensi e guy available. We need to upgrade this personal if we are going to have Bowen running it full time. Great players may make his trash scheme look better
