    • Kollar was a cool guy, I liked him and I'll sort of miss him. I wish him the best working with Super Mario and company. I'm good with Sanders taking over, though. We still have a lot of good pieces to our line. Schobel needs to come back in a big way, though.

            I am glad Ralph will get in. He truly deserves it.

                The C-2 is not dead, correct, but it is being used by fewer teams as a base package defense. That was the core point of the article and what I was saying. The C-2 truly is a terrible fit for the Bills, and based upon the personnel moves they made in 2008 I see that they have acknowledged it, especially with the defense they were running during the season. The C-2 encourages teams to run on you, if you can't generate a pass rush, and have lighter, quicker yet less stout players in your front 4 then teams will try to wash out your front and pound the ball. Buffalo suffered from all that in the past, they did not ever acquire the talent and furthermore they play in an environment where rushing the ball becomes a key for December games.
                As I previously said, the teams that acquire the best players for their particular defense usually end up with the better defense no matter what scheme you use. HC's come and go, some prefer the 3-4, some prefer the basic 4-3 and some like the Cover 2. Each defense has its strengths and weaknesses and offenses will attack the weaknesses and try and defend the strengths. There is no proof that one defense is better than another. When Indy and Chicago got to the SB, the Cover 2 was the rage, NE and Pittsburgh have made the 3-4 look good and the Giants have made the basic 4-3 look good although they did use a lot of Cover 2 ideas like using Tuck as a underweight pass rushing DT. I just don't see many teams dropping the Cover 2 defense but I agree that maybe Buffalo could use some better qualified players to make it work better. We need a small DE(under 270lbs. and maybe smaller) who is a pass rushing specialist because in the end the Cover 2 starts with the front 4's ability to apply pressure. If it fails to apply pressure then it exposes the back 7 to an easy attack. The Cover 2 also depends on the front 4 penetrating and breaking up running plays before they get started but your right, the Cover 2's strength is against the pass and it is more vulnerable to running plays.
                I don't think Buffalo is prepared to give up on the Cover 2 defense just yet, They made a commitment to it when they drafted Whitner, McCargo, Williams and drafted CB more suitable to the Cover 2. A switch doesn't make your defense immediately better, it just creates more holes where suitable personnel have to be found.
                I think if our financial situation has improved through the sale of games to Toronto and we are able to retain our own FA's and maybe sign a few for ourselves then we are a team on the verge of being a solid playoff contender. Our QB is entering his 3rd year when most pro QB's finally blossom
                and with a minor change here or there, it should be a very effective offense by next year. Our defense is in the same shape where an addition here or there should be enough for it to excel. This is not the time for a major overhaul of our defense which will then take another 2 or 3 years to jell. If we don't make a quantum leap next year then we may need to change HC's and it will be up to the new HC to decide if a defensive scheme change is necessary, it isn't going to happen under Jauron. He doesn't have the time left to rebuild the defense with a new scheme, he would be fired before then so he'll ride out the Cover 2 till he is either fired or he succeeds.
                And proud of it!!!

                • That about sums it up.

                  I would hate to see anything major happen to our defense minus some additions. The only reason we have been competitive the last couple of years is because of it. Our defense is a lot better then most people think, but it does need some work.

                  No big changes. No switching to 3-4 just because. Lets continue to work with what we have been building, use that continuity, and start winning some damn games.

                    • Justin Jenkins. I thought he and James Newson were going to be udfa gems back in the day.

                      • Anyone else tired about hearing Schobel being a lot worse now than he used to be? I find that people are failing to realize that hes been the only pass rusher on the team for his entire career and that teams basically just need to take him out and then they are pretty much good to drop back and pass whenever they want as long as their linemen can recognize the rare times that we actually blitz the quarterback.

                        I really want us to get another pass rushing end in the draft or free agency, but I REALLY hope that we play them at Left End rather than screw with Schobel. If anything we should look for another mid-round pass rusher, like Ellis, again this year. I don't care if they don't contribute much as rookies as long as they aren't a pilon out there like Kelsay and Denney (assuming the tackles don't fall over).

                        I know we need pass rushers, but I think it should be from the left side rather than the right. I know Everette Brown played a lot of left end in college, he mostly played the left side against Boston College but apparently he played right end for them this year and left end last year?? If we pick up a first round end I REALLY want it to be Brown or no one.

                            The Bills offered Greer a 5-year, $20 million deal.
                            He'd be stupid to take that.

                            • That's nothing unexpected. At corner I feel we're just about set. 1-2 McCoverage with Corner or Youboty as a nickel, I can live with that. We need to bring in a new starter at linebacker, though. Ellison and the delivery man are just good backups (I'd prefer DiGiorgio). Bowen is just a STer.

                                But...
                                If the Bills tried to resign Greer, then that means they feel having 3 good CBs is important.
                                So if we don't resign him, we have McGee, McKelvin, Youboty, and Corner.
                                But they might still want to sign/draft another one, right?
