I don't get the 3-man rushes, but I don't think blitzing is necessarily a good strategy vs Rodgers. You guys were generating enough pressure with 4-man rushes. Rodgers has been lethal beating the blitz.
Yeah but you can't let Brees or AR sit back there with 10 seconds to throw either. Watch the highlights or that play to Drive for the TD again. Look how much time AR had! He had a lot of time to take his time and go through his progressions.
This team was build to get after the QB! We have a lot of DEs and they are good. We are not build for 3 man rushes and zone. The whole point of attacking the QB is to not let the CBs cover that long.
We have 5 Cbs on IR, 5! So rushing 3 and dropping 8 and having them cover a long time is pathetic. You can't expect to do that and win. If AR or Brees picks you a part when you blitz or get pressure, I can live with that. That means we played based on our identity and lost.
Why can't we blitz like you guys play in and play out? Rob Ryan does it. Capers does it. Gregg Williams did it last game. But we play this passive non sense and hope our magical 3 man rush and 8 drop back can somehow win in key situations.
If we throw the kitchen sink at QBs and they win, props to them. I can stomach that loss. We did what we do and lost. Fine, props to the winning team. But when we play bush league, and lose that bothers me. We have the personnel to attack, and we don't.
Tuck, JPP, Tolly, and Kiwi and we pick rush 3. Someone should be kicked in the balls! We have a 4 aces package where we would rush all 4 at you along with a blitz. We didn't see that.
Just a stupid DC. We gone from Tim Lewis, to Spags who was great, to Bill Sheridan, and now stupid Fewell. 1/4 DCs was good. The other 3 were miserable!
