    If they can't, I don't see a happy ending.
    I agree SASF. Foot was lagging on several plays trying to make the tackle. He just does not have the foot speed to match some of the current RBs out there.

    That 10 yard cushion gives the LB's the time needed to rush the QB, but if they decide to dink and dunk, like many have started to, you have problems in both pass rush and pass defense. The only solution is to totally change the scheme of the Defense and/or just bite the bullet and go to the 4-3. However, we haven't drafted towards a 4-3 D, so we must stay with what we got and hope LeBeau can make adjustments in our current scheme to protect against the short passing game. Any suggestions for the Hall of Famer?
