I mean, we have too much tied up in defense to be this damn bad. Every run seemed to go for several yards. Every WR was open today. Zero pressure on Cousins. We have way too much talent on defense to be so bad at everything. The lack of blitzing to this point has proven to not work, yet we keep rolling with it.
Obviously my concern is, how much of this is on Pasqualoni? I see he stands right next to Patricia all game, maybe this is Patricia’s calling? Either way, it needs to change. It’s bad
Paul P. Isn’t going anywhere as long as MP is here.
Personally I like a lot of what our Defense is doing. Our only real issue on defense is along the DL. We’re really banged up on our DL and Davis has been struggling with injury all season at LBer. Snacks groin injury is getting worse and I suspect he will miss this weeks game as a result. We just need to get healthy. I also feel our defense is lacking a true difference maker or two on it.
Slay isn’t as dominating because he’s playing on a sore hamstring. Those injuries can linger a long time.
The commentators mentioned that the Lions rarely blitz . . . why? Our pass rush is nonexistent and our current scheme keeps opposing quarterbacks calm and comfortable. Patricia is a defensive coach, I would expect more pressure this Sunday.
