With Bowen calling the plays.
Whomever you think the best D play caller in the NFL couldn’t have taken that D group with the injuries and player that quit, with no practice and made them substantially better.
I don’t really recall any doubt talk regarding lefleur. I do recall some about art up until Mariota was benched. After that it was sporadic on what seemed like stupid calls.
I haven’t seen much negative reaction to Downing.
The defensive side is a different story. The D was trash dating back before Lebeau. The one year the D was pretty good (18’), was Pees’s first year. His second year, the D went backwards and some could attribute to some key injuries. He retired and literally no one took his place. The. After that absolute trash of a defensive season was over, Vrabel states that Bowen did most of that work. It was bad enough that had he been given the title of DC, he should have been fired. Instead, he was just promoted to having the title. The distaste for that move is absolutely justified.
Disagree. Maybe not every DC out there, but I’m confident many would have done better.
You’re point missing again. We were 11-5 with Bowen calling the plays. While he is not my favorite, why would it drop off more with the same guy involved? I assume we get some better players on D for next season so why wouldn’t the defense be better, not worse?
Oh yea... exactly. Sorry!
Honestly, I expect the D to be better. Not better enough to make a real difference though.
LOL ... then how would you know?
well, things like not last in the league on 3rd down kinda things.. but we wont be top 10 either. So we might shave a score or turn a td into a fg sometimes.
