Re: Sean Taylor

I think Taylor is just having an off year. Basically the defense is having an off year all together. I can't think of one player who has been steady making plays. Maybe Washington, but I saw him miss a couple of tackles yesterday.

I'm more concerned with our top 10 pick Carlos Rogers. So far he's looking like a wasted pick. I give him one more year to get his shit together.

I think that may be the problem with the tackling. Gibbs treated these guys with too much kindness in training camp, limiting their time in pads and now we've got guys who don't want to hit. I miss the swarming defense of the past two years, and without that swarm guys are pressing.

Taylor will be alright, he's still got the best speed/size ratio for a safety in the NFL. But he's having to come up in run support too often to compensate for our pourous front 7. No one on our defense is playing well, and I think they've tuned out GW to a degreee. We've got blown assignments, poor tackling, and will somebody get Carlos some stickum!

Re: Sean Taylor

its almost like the chicken and the egg. if you practice hard, and in full pads, and someone gets hurt, then people will want to know why the hell we were going full tilt in practice. but we see the results of not practicing. these guys have been playing football there whole life. missing tackles is strictly a lack of concentration

Re: Sean Taylor

if you want to tackle better, practice more. our club med offseason had consequences... that couldn't possibly explains it all, but maybe that and the huge checks (lost motivation), injuries, and age are compounding. It is pretty hard to figure out.

Re: Sean Taylor

I think he will play more inspired once I tell him that Steve Smith stole his ATV.

Probably because they're trying to overcompensate for massive deficiencies elsewhere. When you're down a few touchdowns and getting whored out by the opposing offense, going for big strips and whatnot is about all you can hope for.

Re: Sean Taylor

Along with sloppy plays from our defense, I think the opponents figured out Gregg Williams' defensive scheme. For example, we rushed EIGHT and still didn't get to Buc's QB. For the past 2 years, we had very good success when we blitzed. Now, it seems like they know where the blitzes are coming from and pick up our blitzers. Along with every player on D to step up, Gregg Williams also needs to makes some changes/adjustments to his defensive scheme.

But he sure isn't playing at a top level right now.
He reminds me a lot of Roy Williams. Big hitter, poor in coverage.

Re: Sean Taylor

I saw maybe 50 missed tackles last game. Guys are arm tackling and just laying down in front of the ball carrier. I've never seen more guys on a defense fall down at once than we did this sunday. Cadillac didnt have anyone to avoid cause they all fell down.
