    We have a defensive coordinator. All of that is happening.

    You guys have gotten so fixated on this issue because there isn't anyone to blame directly and you have no idea what to do about it.

    Would you be ok with getting more talent and keeping our current "DC"?

    I agree we need more talent but don't think it has to be one or the other. We need both.

    I think Vrabel is a crap DC and have no idea how Bowen was qualified to do it, but if we had better Jimmies and Joes the Xs and Os would look a lot better, regardless.

    Defense needs a complete rebuild in my opinion. That includes both the coaching staff and the talent. I think that a rebuild should start with the defensive coaching staff being purged and letting a new staff taking over. Then you let that staff help rebuilt the defensive talent.

    If Vrabel and Bowen are allowed to stay as the "DC" then a massive talent upgrade would be in order.

    I'm not an analyst and my opinions can always be wrong but I also think a decent DC could get more out of these guys.

    How much more? No clue and no way to prove it

    Sometimes they just look lost. Then there are times where they look like they don't even trust themselves to make basic plays.

    We will have to get more talent for sure, especially rushing the passer. With that being said, we agree on Vrabel and Bowen so hopefully the front office does as well and we fix that too

    Theres no excuse for professional NFL athletes to be this bad on defense. Personnel is to blame. Also scrubs on the d line dont help

    Problem is, I don’t think there is a dearth of talent on defense other than on the edge and maybe interior depth. By and large, it’s the same guys we’ve been solid with the last few years.

    But maybe players like Byard, Evans, Vacarro and Landry have just regressed and it has nothing to do with coaching.

    Still, I believe if this team could find any semblance of a pass rush then the current Jimmies and Joes would look a lot better and what we’ve been used to seeing prior to this year. The pass rush is all time bad.

    How did Laundry regress so much compared to last season, he had double digits sacks last season and not even close to matching last seasons production.

    This same defense made plenty of plays when it mattered under Pees/Coombs last year, or Atleast enough to get by. We did lose a few players but we also got much better on paper, this off-season. There’s a huge lack of leadership/ accountability on the defensive side with both players and coaches. The fact that Vrabel continues to dismiss the defensive issues and not accept responsibility just makes it worse! You would think they would be changing schemes to try to find some way to stop opposing offenses but it’s the same thing every week. The players are regressing! I’m worried that Vrabel will not ever own up to making a mistake not hiring a legitimate defensive coordinator which makes me worry things will not change this off season. Yes missing a few key players hurts, but players have constantly been out of position and miss easy tackles that falls on Vrabel and company!
