I personally would like to see more of the scheme that was used against the patriots last year. Also, everytime I see Woodley and Harrison (when he is playing) drop into coverage it makes me crazy.
I've been saying for all of Tomlin's tenure that we were squandering our opportunity by counting on defense to win games year in and year out, because you can't always have defense like that. I have zero confidence in Tomlin to really do what it takes to win. He is a Gruden protege.
