Defense LOL if you weren't crying

Defense LOL if you weren't crying 


It was like the Groundhog movie but much worse with few laughs unless you were anti-Dallas! I had to relive last years defense again last nite. Nothing has changed at all! Marinelli is living off spent money. So you may ask  why I say this? Well here we go......

safety play still HORRIBLE! not only can these guy not tackle they can't cover eithier minus Dixon! I mean on the one TD bomb it wasn't a safety or a corner 5 yards near this guy. Tackling was an even bigger joke! Any runningback the Chargers brought in our 2ndary made them look like F'in Barry Sanders! These guys have NO passion to even play the game especially the 1st half except the forementioned Dixon who should be a starter if he can cover. It was Ugly! Uninspired and just plain embarrashing!

Linebackers were even worse in the way they tackled! I saw a couple of good hits by a few no names but the so called core guys who'll be playing this season was a JOKE! Again I had to check the Chargers roster to see if Barry Sanders had grown young again and signed with SanDiego. These guys are paper thin and wheres this NEW physical team Garrett is harping on?????//Embarrashing!

Defensive line must of had the night off! These Charger guys were running through them as if they weren't even there. No physical play at all! The safties had to make most of the tackles when they weren't missing them because the Defensive line or Lbackers missed and whiffed all night long! Now I know some will say its the 1st preseason game but it was the 1st for Dixon too and he brought the wood. The rest brought nothing! I thought Boatright put in a great response too last nite! He and Dixon were great.

Corners....The guy with the dreadlocks over his name is probably or should be getting a visit from the Turk about now! If any of these guys are gonna make the team we are toast! Garrett better have a revolving door starting today at every spot on defense! Bring in a new guy until you find another Boatright or Dixion! They may have made a few mistakes too but they played tough and smart with the toughness.

Coaching! Marinelli doesn't inpress me at all! Garrett is still on the sidelines looking lost especially when the team is being mauled. yet we wonder why the team looks lost and confused. Look no further then the head coach! In conclusion I see NO change at all from last years defense! Players are lost out there. No physical play minus 2 or 3 players. No heart as a defensive unit. No leader! And the funny part is the're trying to say they want to run the ball more this year! Give me a Friggin break! We'll be down double digits by the 2nd quarter the way this defense looks! Romo arm is gonna fall off this year if it even last that long. Because with this defense hes gonna be throwing 40 times a game every game. Calling it as I saw it....confused

DEFENSE!

So you actually think the starters are gonna be much better? Thats the LOL,pal. You're getting the same guys you had last year minus Lee and Ware. You got the same head coach and Merrinelli is vastly overated .IMO. Its a culture out there. These guys didn't ven show the 1st half and they are supposedly playing for NFL futures. Yep-you keep drinking the koolaide and I'll keep reporting the truth. We'll see were it all lands. I doubt really if this defense last nite could stop a division 2 college team from moving the ball up and down the field.

DEFENSE!

Got any predictions on the season yet?  I don't think they will be 8-8 this year.

I wont pretend as if the defensive effort last night was a good one. But to sit here and make a post such as yours after the first preseason game, in which almost our entire secondary and d-line were not playing, is beyond stupid. 

Is the defense going to be good this year? Probably not, but we knew that. Stop acting like something drastic was supposed to change.

Is the defense going at least a step up from last year? Its still completely possible. 

Either way, anyone trying to give a definitive one way or the other after one preseason game is ridiculous.

With the level of play that we get at QB it will take another historically bad defensive effort to keep us out of the playoffs.  Having said that I am pretty sure we won't make the playoffs.

If Romo could throw a football like I hit a golf ball we would never lose.

Whats stupid is for you not to see the c ulture on this team! You had 2 maybe 3 guys out there playing to earn a job. Common sense would say if you wanna make the team you need to be busting your butt. The 1st half was pathetic and thats on Garrett!These guys were playing like they were starters taking in a walk through. I already know what the starters will bring. Not much better in IMO. We basically have the same guys on the team minus Lee and Ware. Spencer may never comeback to what he was so that just leaves the new DT. Boatright played great yet Garrless had him in last. Its a soft culture in this organization and the team shows it. It was the 1st game and like last year I said the same thing the 1st game and what happened last year,LeVar? Not drinking the koolaide! my report was on 1 game. Can they change? yes! but I haven't seen anything so far to lead me to think they will. Teams usually take on their coaches personalities . So far Dallas has Garretts in spades. Soft, Lost and confused.

DEFENSE!

Re: Defense LOL if you weren't crying 


Let's see. Do we think the starters will better then the 3rd string players? I would say yes. We were missing Claiborne, Carr and Scandrick (who only played one series). On top of that we had no Melton or Barry Church or Lawrence (who I will admit is an unknown). So would they be better with those players on the field? Nope they would be just as bad as a corner pulled off the street yesterday and d lineman who were playing their first NFL game. That was sarcasm if you couldn't tell. Do you even think before you type? You are quickly on your way to the most unintelligent poster of the year award. Congratulations.

Common sense would also tell me that overreacting after one preseason game is a little silly. Common sense would also tell me that preseason games are not played like regular season games and are generally used for evaluation purposes during many parts of the game. Common sense would tell me that a defense that was missing Carr, Claiborne, Scandrick, Crawford, Church and Melton right off the bat is not going to show you our full potential when all that remains is a bunch of very young players who don' t know their head from a hole in the ground yet.

Stop thinking there was going to be some crazy miraculous change from last year to this year. Its not like we had major additions to the defense that will change the entire make up of it. What the hell were you expecting? Did you think we were going to be good?

Re: Defense LOL if you weren't crying 


My bad Scandrick didn't play at all! And two other starters (the two mclains) didn't play either. That's 3/4 of the defense. Those players just couldn't make a difference. We are not going to be a great defense. But, if they can rank I'm the 15-20 range this year, we will have a chance to be a good team.

Yup, I totally agree: Their backups and cuts beat the crap out of our backups and cuts.
