When Alex Smith manages to go 20/26, 211 yards, 2 TDs and 0 Ints, your passing defense isn't up to standards, either.
Yes. That shows that your passing D is amongst the worst. When Alex Smith looks like Tom Brady, it's time to [aiee]
Next to that, 2 of 9 on third downs looks pretty darn good, but overal we couldn't stop them one bit, as we gave up 22nd first downs. 13 of them by passing.
The communication looked absolutely horrendous. There where holes so big that I could've completed some passes in just about every zone coverage scheme. When we do go man, we just lack the talent in the secondary. Both at the corner and safety position.
It may take 2 drafts to fix the problems. Draft 1 was this year. Draft 2 is next year.
will address this.
I'm a very big believer of a pass rush being able to cover up for a bad secondary, but when you have Bush (trying to) play man, with the biggest help you can give him being MD Jennings... Now that's a very sad sight.
All in all, we could've seen this coming. I vividly recall stats posted about Capers' defenses exploding on to the scene in year one and gradually just getting worse every year.
Dom has worn out his welcome. I'll give him until mid-season.
That said, it's early and something can be done. Not about the blatant lack of talent, but you can scheme around it a bit and hope you can cover it up. We played some bad, bad football and only lost by 8 against, what you can very realistically call, a contender. There's still hope.
Yes. There is hope. 2013,
will once again focus on D. Cobb looks like he will develop. The Niner fans I was watching the game with were apologizing to me for Finley. Geez, when it gets that bad, I say trade Finley and keep Gregorious. With Gregorious, Jordy, and Cobb, we'll have an elite receiving staff once again in 2013 and with 2 years of
going D and a new DC, we'll be back on track to win it all in 2013.
I know Vikesrule loves to call me chicken little, but see, this is what he doesn't understand...
For Packers fans, it's SB victory or bust. Anything short of winning a SB is a lost year. Viking fans just want a winning record. We're not content with just a winning record.
You had your chance in 2009 and blew it. We had our chance in 2010 and won it all. We'll win our 2nd of the
in 2013 or 2014. Then we'll start discussing DYNASTY again.
But Dom Capers is the weak link, folks. He needs to go. He has until Week 9 to prove me wrong.
