I want a change on defense. Not in personel, but in scheme. Our defense looks alot like Wade Philips' defense except the change from a 3-4 to 4-3.
This is true that we run a lot of soft man and basic zone coverages of which we don't seem to be able to handle too well. If we had coverage safeties it would work but we don't.
Our corners suck. J-Web needs to be cut and we need to find a strategy to play to his strengths, and doubling whoever he is covering with Scott IS NOT the answer. That only seems to make things worse. I think someone also needs to wake Keith Brooking up. 1 good game this year? Thats it?
I agree here after DeLo he has no help. Webster is as streaky as a corner can get he would be much better taking over as the nickle back. We really need one more starting quality corner. Webster & Mathis or Cash as the dimeback would probably be pretty good.
Jenks has a severe case of butterfingers and thats a huge problem. I want to see Roddy get more PT this second half. He seems to know what to do to catch a pass from Vick. I also want to see Dunn more active in the passing game, not Griff.
While I would like to see more Dunn and less WR player I'd also like to see Griffith get more attention. We haven't used him much. I really do think this offense needs to concentrate on working the edges and screen passes and try and lure the corners into a false sense of security. I'd like to see more Dunn & Griffith in the flats and short comeback routes by our receivers. Then come out with some play action and go deep while hopefully catching the secondary asleep. But clearly Vick's bread & butter is the short stuff. I would also like to see Roddy get a little more time. We need to see a few more 3 receiver sets. Knapp is far too obssessed with 2-TE, 2-WR sets.
I remember the Raiders offense that got them to the Super Bowl that would be very effective here. Granted we don't need to pass to run like they did with Garner.
