Wasn't AH supposed to open things up for these guys?
Ask Blache that question and watch him blow up, like he did on Comcast (?).

Re: Defense = Disappointment

Carter's not winning his one on ones like he was last year. Golston hardly needs to be blocked. Whatever Daniels had left in terms of rushing the passer is gone. You have Haynesworth, you have Griffin, and if Orakpo doesn't come, you have Carter not really embarrassing himself out there.

I like Lorenzo Alexander. He needs more playing time, and frankly, he can play any position on the line. He has to start at this point.

Re: Defense = Disappointment

Surprisingly, Blache is blitzing less than last year...which would be great if we had last year's personnel. Having a four man rush while Phillip Daniels and Kedric Golston are on the field essentially means that either Haynesworth or Carter have to beat their matchups or there is no pressure.

When Orakpo AND Carter AND Haynesworth come, we get good pressure on the quarterback. But the DL rotation has not worked out well.

True. He used to bring the safeties and the corners. Now he thinks he is going to get to the QB with a 4 man rush. Blache is a idiot. Talks a good game but is dumb as hell. Eventhough we acquired some new toys he should have still stayed relatively close to the defenses Greg Williams used to call. The old defensive scheme was working for the most part. I am sure Greg Williams is watching the game shaking his head and laughing his ass off.

The man has repeatedly said that sacks are overrated. In my opinion, Blache is simply wrong. We don't produce pressure and so we don't produce big plays, despite having guys like Haynesworth, Orakpo, Fletcher, and others on defense. The defense bends, bends, bends, and occasionally breaks. While they don't let teams score 30 points on a consistent basis, they consistently fail to get a lot of 3 and outs and don't make the plays that they should.

Moreover, there are telltale signs of poor coaching. How many missed tackles have we seen over the past 3 weeks? That's Coaching 101. It's one thing if DBs are biting on play-action to often, it's quite another if they can't tackle. I just don't have any faith in this defense.
Great Post! I'm tired of Blache getting a pass. We need o-linemen but instead we give him more and more weapons to work with and can't get off the GD field. Our "D" made a rookie QB look like an all-pro. He needs to be held accountable and I'm tired of his BS excuses. And how F'ing smart do you have to be to play Orakpo at DE?

Re: Defense = Disappointment

Williams had a much more aggressive and, in my opinion, superior mentality. He attacked, attacked, and attacked. The best defensive coordinators have that mentality (see Rex Ryan, Lane Kiffin, Dick Lebeau). Blache does not.

Does anyone take accountability on the team?

Re: Defense = Disappointment

Blache got the same criticism in Chicago. He should not be a DC. Hey here's an idea, lets draft the best pass rushing DE in college and play him at LB! Oh and by the way, we've got AH to push the pocket and take double teams. But we'll play Orakpo outside and give a freakin cushion to the receivers so big you could get open in a wheelchair. What a joke.

Exactly. You would think that using Orakpo on the line with AH would have been the first thought. Sorry but Orakpo can't cover a bed. He needs to be on the D-line. But Blache is a stubborn old man. I do think he needs to get fired and let someone else on the D staff call plays. I dont think they would do any worse.

I don't know if we should fire Blache, but I wonder if Kirk Olivadotti is ready to be a D-coordinator. We're supposedly grooming him for bigger and better things, but he's only had a year or so as a coach.

Dude some of those beds can be pretty tricky like the ones that disappear into the walls.

True but Blache has had more than enough years coaching D and he is worse than he was before.
