You are not alone in this. I was singing his praises before the season but the guy has lost a step he could not afford to lose in coverage, teams know that and are throwing against him, and his takles are weak. Willis ran to the left on a 21 yard gain during the game and I watched Brooking run to the pile instead of watching the weak side (where he happened to be). Perhaps he has also lost his ability to 'sniff out the ball'. Anyway, the guy has looked mundane to say the least, but DeMo has been a monster so he has made up for Brook so far.


Also, Willis ran for 140 and a TD. *cough* Hartwell *cough* run stopper *cough*

As far as preventing yardage out team has not been impressive in the least. We are very talent at letting teams move to the redzone with no problems. Then all of a sudden we realize... "Oh crap! They are in the red zone!" Then play stiff defense and typically hold them to a field goal.

Our secondary is devastated with injuries and any QB worth his salt will kill us (Tom Brady anyone?) and because of secondary injuries we aren't able to come up on the run like we usually do.

Thank God Vick really elevated his game and Knapp decided to actually let him pass. I was impressed on both last week. This week our defense is in the dog house.

Two things, A) most of Wilis's big runs were at Brook and away from Hartwell and B) we need someone to keep O-linemen off of Hartwell. He is having to take on blocks from OL and TE's almost every run play. And its his first three games in the system, so give him so time.

Question for all you out there who think Brooking is killing us, would moving Reese into the lineup or even Boley be an improvement at this point?

Reese? Maybe, but I doubt it. Boley.....no.

IMO Brook needs to be moved to the strongside.

I'm starting to think that outside of DeMo who is better then advertised; that our linebackers are overrated.
