STAND UP AND MAINTAIN THE GAPS DERP GAP DISCIPLINE GUUUHHH
HERP GIVE RECEIVERS A 7-YARD CUSHION DERP.
DONT ATTACK, READ AND REACT. DON'T GIVE UP THE BIG PLAY HURR DUHH
15th Ranked Rush Defense.
24 and 34 Points given up in consecutive road games. Both losses.
Yeah, that's the problem. Opponents aren't making the mistakes our defense counts on. Denver and Oakland scored on all of their 2nd half drives.
Plus, we're giving up big plays. 70+ yarder in Denver, 40+ yarder vs. NYJ, and 60+ yarder in Oakland.
It's just not working. Something has to change. Hopefully Tomlin's 4th down attempt with the game on the line was the first salvo to LeBeau that the defense, as currently schemed and manned, isn't working.
