Itīs no coincidence that Arizona and Houston are becoming the best defenses in the league. They stuck to the scheme and got the players to fit that scheme. It works very well over time when you find the players to replace the old ones. But you NEED PLAYMAKERS.

Ray Horton's defense (who uses LeBeaus same scheme) is hot because the Cards have Patrick Peterson, Daryl Washington, Adrian Wilson and a load of defensive playmakers.

I'd say the jury is still out on Dalton. He's looking good, but he's young and for the most part, unproven. He's not Eli, Flacco, Rivers, or Romo...yet.

I can't blame LeBeau for this - I blame the players - LeBeau made calls that should have worked - IF they players were able to execute - Its not like LeBeau didn't tell the players to rush the QB, they just weren't good enough to get there. One thing I can confirm - I wish he had called more blitzes - not nearly enough IMO yesterday.

Every time we blitzed, Palmer was hurried or sacked, but unfortunately, we rarely blitzed. Not to mention our coverage left guys open, and Lebeau didn't make any adjustments at halftime to put corners in man coverage.

Simply put: The defensive gameplan didn't account for the possibilities of Palmer actually throwing worth a shit, and it burned us. No adjustments we're made, and the offense was forced to score 31 points, only to lose.

I'm not going to get on the "sky is falling" bandwagon like a lot of you are, and i'm CERTAINLY not going to suggest firing ANYONE is the answer, but it's clear to me that the defense IS at fault for this loss. Anytime our offense puts up 31 points it should be enough.

the raiders position players average 4.33 speed, meaning that if they started a 4X100 relay team they would be olympic quality.

NO WAY is lebeau gonna man up on that with ryan mundy playing center field. he will take his chances forcing palmer to sustain drives as opposed to watching palmer take the top off our defense 5-6 times and 350+ yards.

Well, he took his chances, and the Raiders scored 34 points. I guess we needed to put Mike Wallace and Chris Rainey in coverage and hope for the best.

Like I said, i'm not on the "Fire Lebeau" bandwagon, but it's clearly HIS unit that lost this game, and in the end, he's the leader of that group of guys. Something needs to happen, and i'm hoping an praying that Polamalu and Harrison are the answer.

this loss definitely has lebeaus fingerprints all over it.

ultimately coaching defense is a 50-50 guessing game (with educated guesses coming from tons of film study and game planning)

you either defend a pass or you defend the run on any given play. the steelers seemed to guess wrong all day and looked like they were clueless whether the raiders were going to run or throw.

they looked flat footed.

i wonder if the loss of farrior directing traffic is having a bigger impact than anyone realizes?

As I said just a few minutes ago over at Steelers Xtreme: I think the only thing the defense is missing out of Farrior and Smith is the leadership. Out side of that, both guys we're slipping.

Farrior led the team in tackles, most of them the result of him getting burned for twenty yards and catching up to his man as he's slowing down for the pass. It's sad, but true none the less.

The biggest problem is the fact we we're playing without Polamalu, and the biggest reason of all is that we haven't had the starting defense on field in four games dating back to January.

When Harrison is hot, he gets to the QB. He did it last year before his injury, and Woodley is the same. When those two are on fire, the opposing QB is under pressure. I think the defense will improve as the year goes on barring any major injuries, and the same goes for the offense.
