    We miss both, a lot! Hayensworth is ridiculous... You don't become the highest paid defensive player in the league if your not pretty damn good. To say that the Titans, or any other team for that matter, wouldn't miss a talent like that is nuts.... He is only one player and although our defense isn't as good without him we sure as hell shouldn't stink this bad!

    Schwartz. I'd give anything to have him back.

    Can we give the opposition some credit?

    The QBs we have faced were very accurate and made good decisions. Rothelisberger couldn't miss an open reciever at the end of that game and scab was really on in game 2. Garrard hardly made a bad decision or throw on sunday.


    I don't know what to do with the pass rush because while kearse and KVB have obviously lost a step and are not effective any longer they do both alternate with younger faster guys who are not always getting it done either.

    Having jones hurt doesn't help but that is hardly an excuse.

    Neither? I wish Jim luck and hope he's at the helm for something positive in Detroit, but they're both gone so we should all move on and worry about this team getting better.

    Yeah, I can probably argue for both guys, but honestly? I thought we sucked defending the pass with both guys on our payroll. The critics said we'd suffer stopping the run and that's clearly not the case I think the D Line misses Albert more than anyone else, but maybe his push was what made it easier for the other 7 guys. I see some of Schwartz in Cecil, I just think teams KNOW we're not good at stopping the pass and every team leaches off the same thing.

    And until we get Finnegan and Fuller back in, I really won't hold any games past Week 3 against the secondary. They still suck, but it was clearly at an all time low yesterday with a good excuse.

    Fat Al only played maybe 60% of the snaps?

    The corners often played off the line under Schwartz which drove me crazy but I could understand not wanting to give up the big play. But I'm seeing this on 3rd-and-four.

    I had hoped we would blitz more with cecil but apparently not. Wished we had brought Greg Williams back he is doing wonders in N.O. they are bringing heat pressing corners and making things happin. Not playing 10 yards of the ball, zone coverage, with wide open wr's running around that a good high school qb could hit.

    Schwartz. Just speculating, but I think he'd call some blitzes if the 4 man front was giving the QB 5-6 seconds to throw the ball.
