Default Is It LeBeau ? Or is it Troy ?

I know our Offense scratches and claws most every game... so I'll leave that gripe for another post. However, 1) when Troy is playing the Defense usually excels. When Troy is not there AND LeBeau IS there, the defense is average at best. 2) It seems every time Troy makes a big play, he took it upon HIMSELF to gamble as opposed to credit of a play call. And 3) When LeBeau made Woodley the roaming player for the earlier part of the year (and Troy was forced to follow play routes) we just stopped getting turnovers and there was a big difference in game changing plays. When Troy was put back as the roamer, he makes a big play each game and gets talk as defensive MVP. Maybe Troy P. is a better D Coordinator ? Should he be getting the credit and praise that LeBeau gets instead ? Just my thoughts...

Our defense revolves around Troy so when he doesn't play we are reserved.

NO excuse for being "reserved" just because Troy isn't playing.

Yeah we only gave up 13 points on defense but, those points came at a price of long sustained drives. Those clock eaters are game killers. Sometimes its not enough to just stop a team. You have to stop them quick.

Especially since our offense is slow and lumbering. We need all the time we can get to score points cause its gonna take us a while.

I guess the biggest difference isn't in the play calling on D, but in the execution. Troy has a killers instinct and seems to be able to make a guess at what the offense is gonna do next. That allows him to stuff the run and get sacks and interceptions.

When he's not in, we are still great on D, but we don't get those lucky guesses and quick route jumps.

You can not blame the defense for this game. We had the ball down by 3 with plenty of time and 3 timeouts and gave up a safety. The Defense got us the ball back with over 2 minutes and down by 5. The defense did their job.

The TD came on a drive where we gave them the ball on the friggin 50. This D did it's job the last 2 drives, got us the ball back.
At some point , when we lose, we have to stop blaming the D. They only gave up 13, this offense has underachieved all season long, it under achieved last year, I am sure after tonights game we will have allowed the fewest points per game in the league.
Special teams and very bad situational offensive play calling cost us this game, NOT THE D, NOT LEBEAU AND CERTAINLY NOT BECAUSE TROY WASN'T PLAYING!!!!!!!!
