    Pretty much every football person says the exact same thing.

    I don't care, maybe Bradley is his best friend uncle who knows? But Dick must go. He's not creative at all. No pressure packages just the same old ****, and the 10yd cushion is pathetic on 3rd and short.

    Its amazing Carnell Lake doesn't receive any grief around here. After all, he does coach the secondary.

    10 yd cushion and lack of blitzes was wayyyy before Carnell arrived.

    It was a strip sack not an INT but this D can't tackle...

    I'm watching the Seattle game and I see gang tackles, attitude and a ton of penalties but they set the tone on D.

    We don't gang tackle and you know damn well no lead is safe with this D.

    We used to have swagger but now its a bunch of guys waiting for Troy to do something.

    And we were winning Super Bowls but I guess that doesn't fit the agenda.

So, let's start lobbing the ball all around the field in the second. The guy can design some great plays, but as an "in game play caller" he leaves a whole helluva lot to be desired.
    No... Haley is an easy punching bag because he is the OC. I'm not a fan but he isn't the problem. This D RARELY makes a play to win a game. This D continues to give up 3rd down conversions on 3rd and 7 or more.

    Miami has never scored more than 27 points this season... until they play us.
    Tannehill never played in the snow... but he looks like Marino.
    If the QB keeps the ball on a zone read... huge gain.
    Freaking Tebow.... nuff said.

    I'm sorry but even the best need to retire at some point. There is no doubt in my mind DL is one of the best that ever did it but times up. Its obvious his complex D isn't being taught at the college level and he is stunting growth.

    Iread somewhere that Teo is struggling... no thanks.

    I agree about the D. And like I said, I wouldn't shed tears if DL retired or was replaced. I think there comes a time when there needs to be a new voice heard and this is probably that time. Only person I know that has a "job for life" is the Pope.
    The D is definitely the MAJOR problem. But Haley is also a problem. In short, the D is terrible and the O is schizophrenic. Does not lend itself to a winning season.

    That makes absolutely no sense...
