Default "defense" completely lit up

Yes our offense turned the ball over. One was run back for a TD, but the other 2 times, i didn't see the "D" stopping them.
And whats up with Troy? again? Are we not utilizing him properly? This thing of playing him 20 yards deep every play is CLEARLY not working out.

Fact. If Rogers receivers didn't drop all those balls, he would have approached the 500 yard mark in passing.
One drop was all in the clear and would have been an easy 60, 70 yd TD. These weren't your usual "the throw was just a bit off and dropped" or "it would have been a difficult catch but dropped" drops....these were perfect throws right in the hands that should have been caught.
An embarrassing finale on a national stage for our "5 star defense". We need serious, huge surgery on our secondary this off-season and i hope they've begun the thinking process already.

I heard we interviewed Jeff Fisher on the radio IN Dallas. Defensive Coordinator? Arians out? Who knows.

i don't know if i'd go that far, i'm not sure. But we need to figure out a way to stop the short slants and open middle. Its getting dire. The good QB's such as Brees, Brady, and Rogers are all making us look downright foolish.
The only reason Flacco couldn't do it is because he doesn't have a cool head like those guys and gets rattled easy.

Who knows, it could be all behind closed doors type ordeal but they were saying we indeed met with him. Very interesting.

And that's why I would go that far in saying it might be time for a new DC. The league is completely changing and I don't know if his old school genius is going to get the job done anymore. Maybe it's just personnel, though. Something just isn't right with the defense anymore.

I've thought this ever since XLIII. Watching us pummel Zona and then let them back into and even take the lead on us. Watching 2009 with teams like the Raiders coming back and beating us in the 4th quarter.

I'm not saying LeBeau has to go or anything crazy like that, but there are some adjustments that could/should be made.
