    Agreed, 3-4 not working same as the idea of giving good WRs 10 yard cushions

    Next time we shouldn't have taken a f*cking WR at #5 when guys like Jamal Adams are still on the board.

    WRs are a luxury that we cannot afford right now with our D the way it is.

    Put you best cb on the oppositions best wr for one. Jackson back to nickel he sucks covering fast wr even though hes quick himself. Fire lebeau. Not much we can do now till end of season.

    Fire our coaches. Go to a 4-3 and continue to upgrade our secondary. Not that hard.

    Even if we run a soft zone (which fails 99% of the time and makes me mad) I would like to see the CB line up vaguely near the WR on 3rd and short. It was embarrassing seeing them cruise the third down conversions.

    There were alarm bells all over the field. Run D was awful today which is unusual and worrying. Where is Casey this year?

    I don't think there are any quick solutions other than at least put Ryan on the WR1. We lack talent unfortunately but its not like this is news to anyone.

    I think we need to adapt with what we have by being more aggressive. Rush 6 etc more regularly. The prevent stuff never works.

    Everybody wants to go back to the 4-3 now. Five years ago everyone hated the 4-3 and wanted to go to the 3-4.

    If this defense practices against this pathetic offensive play calling no wonder they get burned so often. They must be like, why are these guys not running up the middle against our stacked front like in practice?

    But seriously time for new coordinator which unfortunately barring a complete collapse is an off season thing...
