Add to that, the fact that the entire offense noticeably regressed last year. I agree that this isn't a one dimensional issue, however, there are some things people are overlooking: We're not even on our 2nd string DT's anymore Our crappy safeties are playing deeper than they normally would, which aids in sweep and pitch runs McClellin can't contain worth a ****, and at least one of those runs was due to him buying on a fake Our rookie LB's are playing better than they did in their first game Bass is playing much better than he did earlier in the season. Now, you mention that the guys that were put in weeks ago aren't progressing, but do you you really think Leonard Cohen, Major Rite and Chris Conte would progress under great coaches? Not all young guys "get it" at any point in their rookie year, but each of the rookies have shown a little bit more than the veteran holdovers we have.
