Not really sure. D has athletes on D. Dont see it being a recruiting issue as much as the scheme and the continuing lack of aggressiveness. New scheme issues evident with way too many blown assignments. 2ndary tackling albeit not as weak as last few years is still not good. Botts still calling a bend not break D. CBs most often in a zone read .Did not see much man coverage. Pass rush has not been effective. Some of that may be Nova OL. Understand the theory but results do not justify continuing read and react scheme on most every down. Sure aggressive can at times allow big plays. Hell we gave up a bunch anyway.Andy keeps saying we need more sacks and TOs. We should actually run a D to get them. Relying on individual talents of DL alone is not enuf.
