Why can't we get penetration?

What is wrong with our defense that we can not get to the QB?

Unfortunately the D line has been hit with a rash of injuries! HAIL from MCUSA!

Re: Why can't we get penetration?

Oh, this thread isn't about my frustrations at home (ba dum chschshcs)

*sigh....

No, I think the reason is probably that we can't bring the blitz like the good ole' days of 2005. With corner depth at a minimum we can't afford to bring the heat and leave anyone in 1 on 1 coverage. The GW defense staple was the blitz, without that we're nothing special, if not downright bad.

It's definitly something of concern, and IMO more-so than our QB situation.

and if we're keeping track... i loose points for my first sentence.

Because she has a "headache"....oh wait (boy this thread is going to be filled with such responses)

Griffin and Salave'a haven't been healthy all year and Golston and Montgomery aren't there yet

Re: Why can't we get penetration?

Ever tried KY? If you can't get Her wet that might help.

But really,I think it's due to injury.

Re: Why can't we get penetration?

Sounds like Griff and big Joe are going to be out again this week.

When it rains it pours.

Re: Why can't we get penetration?

Because we're married. That's why we can't get penetration (unless we get half of us a little tipsy, so we forget the kids are in the next room).

Carter is one-dimensional (almost pure speed rush), so without an interior push, he gets herded to the deep outside. Daniels is simply good - not great or threatening.

Frankly, I'd recommmend starting Wynn at one of the interior spots. While he isn't going to be a run-stopper on the inside, he may provide enough of a focus for the opponents to allow his linemates a little more room.

Re: Why can't we get penetration?

Must ...resist...overwhelming...urge...

Without a blitz from the DB postion it makes it hard for our guys to generate any sort of decent pass rush, especially with Griff and Sal out. Maybe Springs will be able to jump in a few times.

Don't...know...how...much...lon..ger...

That being said. I still think the key to the game as has already been demonstarted by last year's Chargers and Steelers is that Peyton can't handle constant pressure. It is time for Daniels to recall whatever motivation he had during last years Dallas game (@ FedEx) and for Andre Carter to play pissed and possessed. I think the secondary is going to have to pla....

THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID!!!

Re: Why can't we get penetration?

Because there is very little about our defense that is good right now.


And, because, she don't play around when it comes to the backdoor.

Re: Why can't we get penetration?

because that costs extra?

Maybe our D-line wasn't as good as we thought it was in the past but we made up for it with good blitzing from the LBs and the DBs.

Re: Why can't we get penetration?

GDub isn't using nearly as many blitz packages as he has in the past...the OLine doesn't have to worry about corners and safeties coming from the outside.

Perhaps it's because you're trying to fill the Grand Canyon with a #2 pencil?

What it is about Kentucky that will help? The water? The air? The lack of technology to distract her mind?
