    Preach Bro, Preach
    dead on with that, way to many 3rd and long and cant get off the field, the coordinators are hiding those DBs in zone coverage PERIOD… if they cant cover then rotate them at least, I see rotation of DBs on the regular watching college FB every Saturday.. we need to focus on 5 DL in the next class the most of all some big fatties if we going to play this 3-3-5, ?? Where is the exotic blitzing we heard about?? the only blitzing I saw was #5 coming off the edge which he didn’t even come close to getting a sack,, the defense is so Vanilla, we line up in the same package every single play,, SMH

    With schollies we win more vs the Ivies. Doubt PL will win most. IMO
    our competition is the CAA and MAC. Not unusual now to see numerous offers to our recruits from these schools. While Army and Navy may not have the same luster they are FBS. I trust the evaluations of multiple coaching staffs more than the stars from the recruiting sites.

    Good article from Groller today on post game. The highlight,other than quoting our own Chuck, was the fact that Andy exploded at team ripping into them for the game performance. Groller noted that the last time Andy raged at team after a loss to UNH,team won 8 in a row. Hope,it works as well this year :)

    I agree Just A Fan, the D staff seems to LOVE the Dbs we have out there. Githens is finally getting his shot and look at him now. I say tote Montgomery, Redmond and some other Dbs out there and se what they got. I’m sure theyre hungry. This stuff wouldnt fly with better coaches, PERFORM or else. Thats how you create competition and make kids PERFORM. It seems as though our DBs know they have a starting job no matter how bad they are and how long theyre bad! once you get a starting job, its like the supreme court, its your for life.

    LehighGuy,
    Now you understand the value of stats :-). Go back to our original conversation on this thread. I told you that you can beat up on the defense all you want. That is where the problem is. My goal was imply to get you off the limited play calling sctick.

    Easy stat for you this time.
    Lehigh is now 2-2. In their 2 losses they gave up 50+ points (actually to teams that are now a combined 6-0 and running up big scores on everyone). Get the defense straightened out and the the wins will come.

    LOL Rich,
    Just looked at JMU this year. They are 4-0 including a win over a BCS team. They are averaging 50.25 ppg and 671 yards of offense. princeton put up 573 yds on their only other opponent. Both teams may be juggernauts.
    This in no way is trying to downplay our pitiful defensive efforts, only trying to put it in perspective a little.

    TIGGERS and JMU are excellent offensive teams. Getting trashed by JMU was not fun but they are just that good. No angst. TIGGERS annoys the hell out of me as we handed them the rout. That said dont see us facing any offenses comparable to those 2. Fordham and Yale likely the best wr’ll see the rest of the way. Nor do I see any dominant Ds coming our way.
    Now for Yale.

    OK, then. So the most glaring problem IS defense. Let’s fix that, if it’s even possible to do within 2 months.

    Isn’t this improvement primarily on the back of the coaching staff? I mean, THIS coaching staff installed the new scheme and taught how it should be played. THIS coaching staff decided which players should be out on the field. THIS coaching staff called all the adjustments that needed to be made as each game played out.

    The players ‘are what they are.’ They can’t learn ‘speed’ over the coming few weeks. They can’t add appreciable strength, nor much in the way of instinct and technique. A little bit, sure.

    I agree, new people need to be tried as pass defenders. That’s for the coaches, too. Other positions? Maybe, YES. If only for a game, to get the attention of certain regulars.

    The balance of this season will largely be determined by the COACHES, I think. I’m not expecting much, unfortunately. That Yankee Stadium disaster still lingers.

    The last time our defense played this badly, we promoted the defensive coordinator to head coach. That worked great :-) Just saying.
