I have no arguement with the defense, to surrender only 5 TD's in 5 games is outstanding.

You wanna know why the defense was SO dominating against the Lions? That huge number your offense put on the board.

The way the offense played against Detroit enabled the defense to play RELAXED in the second half and just MAKE PLAYS. I'll go even further and say that the defense was just plain HAVING FUN playing football!

But when the score is so close in the second half, defenses take fewer risks and lack agressiveness. A short lead puts added pressure on the defense to keep the team in the game, they take fewer aggresive risks on plays. It is like they are playing "not to lose" instead of "playing to win".

Not blaming the defense here, not at all. But the offense needs to be more consistent to take some of that pressure off of the defense.

Few teams have LEs as good as Kampman and it was clear that neither Wade nor Heyer could handle him on that day.

How many teams are we going to play this year that will break down our pass pro the way Kampman did? Speed rushers have done crap against us this year. They try to go around Samuels and he makes them look foolish. They get out of their lanes, and Campbell escapes.

We don't play Tennessee, we don't play Kansas City, we don't play Pittsburgh. Do you think NE is going to get a bunch of pressure against us? I doubt it. Campbell has to make it his job to not leave the pocket just because it helped against GB. Makes the throw longer and disrupts the timing of the routes.

Moss will rebound if he's healthy, no doubt about it.
Like I said, good teams catch the ball in crucial situations. Some of those balls were right in ARE and Moss' hands and they just didn't catch the ball. This has been going on all year. These are the guys that are getting paid alot of $. Plax. Burress doesn't practice all week and comes in and he is killing people.

Good teams make the adjustments and have someone stay in and help out on Kampman. I didn't see anyone helping Wade or Heyer. Why didn't we make an adjustment in that situation? If you have a rookie FA LT coming in to play RT on a top pass rusher who was killing Wade, common sense tells me Heyer might need a little help. Don't ya think? Send 4 guys out in the pattern and have a back stay in and help out. These are things our high priced coaching staff should have easily figured out.

Also all the confusion on the sidelines is just silly. How much more of this do we have to look at? We are always burning time outs in the 2nd half of games when we shouldn't be. Gibbs use to be the master at all this stuff and now he just doesn't do a damn thing. IMO Sanders needs to be on the sidelines calling the plays. I think that would help out a little bit.

Sometimes you just have to trust your guy to get the job done. Saunders playbook may be seven hundred pages thick, but like every other coach, he's limited to the amount he can put in for a game by the amount of practice time he has. If 50% of the gameplan relies on Cooley attacking the defense, then he loses 50% of the gameplan by keeping him in to help Heyer/Wade.

We were pretty successful in protecting the QB when we helped on Kampman, but then no one was getting open (either that or Campbell missed them). It's sort of a double edged sword. The best way to approach it is to mix it up like we did and help Heyer sometimes, but not to often. As long as you keep them off balance, you give yourself a chance to be successful even when you have a matchup deficiency.

Re: Is The NFC East Back?

Speaking of the NFC East, I just realized (looking on the team site) we've fallen to third place. NY looks friggin awesome right now between their wicked pass rush on D and a pretty high-powered offense. I think we're facing another '06 type season where we get swept by the bastards up north (except this year we're more than likely to be swept by Dallas too). Uggh.

Re: Is The NFC East Back?

Just thought I would refresh this thread. The NFC EAST is 14 - 5 and only 1 loss outside the division. How tough is that??

I didn't know it ever left.

The SB champs will have to go through the NFC East IMO. Maybe, just maybe....well you know. DC to Tampa

I actually think the Panthers are a quietly solid team.

Re: Is The NFC East Back?

How can the NFC be back when they never went anywhere? We consistently have three or four playoff caliber squads every year. No other division can say that. Not the AFC east, AFC North, NFC south, or AFC West. We already know how bad the NFC west is (personally, I don't even think they deserve an autonmatic playoff spot out there but that's another post).
The Giants are Super Bowl Champions, The Cowboys are the most talented team in the NFC, The Eagles defense is top five, and the Redskins are playing POSSESSED FOOTBALL... I LOVE IT!!! No other division has four teams top to bottom that can compete in any game anywhere on sunday
