I agree with you wholeheartedly about if he's waiting for the playoffs he should be fired now. We are not even a lock for the playoffs. We are in a good spot, but it could be screwed up.If he’s waiting for the playoffs he should be fired now. This is part scheme and part talent. Still issues at LB and DL depth but this was never a one year fix.
With few exceptions, I don't think the talent is even playing up to their potential. Something seems way off. We're playing some sort of bend but don't break defense to avoid big plays, yet we give up more big plays than anybody. I think it is the scheme / strategy / tactics. We do not tackle well. Seems to be a lot of hanging around until it's desperation - red zone / end of game. I don't understand it. But somehow the defense is having fun? I admit I'm the old fuddy duddy. But how can they show up every week and get pounded without any even apparent attempt to show up toe the line?
Oh well. Early this year when we had a "dominating defense," I said it wasn't dominating but opportunistic. Now I think it's just lucky.
But, we are 8 -2. Both the offense and defense seem to find ways. Holy Cow.
