    Exactly. Sorry, we aren't the only team with injuries on the DL, even major ones. Talked about specifics in other threads. I watched other games with other teams playing udfas, late rounders, and guys signed off the street and they've got it done well. Yeah, losing Melton hurt no doubt but the coaching on D has been terrible.

    Marinelli had nothing to work with Sunday night and his DL looked way better than ours has in any game so far. Maybe that's why Hot Rod is considered one of the better DCs in the NFL and Tucker is a reject from the shithole of football that is Jacksonville.

    I find it either amazing or strange that:
    -some of these guys completely forget some of Rods teachings.

    -we have a d line coach previously from Rod do we not?

    -I see the lack of talent but seeing a lack of urgency, technique, and accountability is quite another. Erosion sure but shouldn't be this bad and to this degree.

    Even though these guys should get better, still not sure why we are not out there looking for more DL depth. What happens if another DT goes down?
    We already have a DE playing Tackle, we don't have anything on the bench now.

    BTW- I hope Wootten playing DT actually makes him better when he does get back to DE. Even though the positions are completely different, I just wonder if it will help him once he is engaged with a tackle.

    Part of Marinelli's talent was his personality and high-intensity coaching style that REALLY motivated the players. It was beyond mundane "X's" and "O's" stuff. I had forgotten that until I saw him again last Sunday night. The guy looked like he was gonna have a flippin' heart attack or stroke (even got a bench penalty for a blow-torch exchange with a ref). But he had that mob of patched together DL guys playing bigtime ball. Players would do anything for Rod. It was like he was leading them into "The Final Battle" of a war each game.

    The guy is just an amazing coach with his players. We don't seem to have anything like this now on defense.

    Yup, Mike Phair is the DL coach, and John Hoke as the defensive backs coach is the only other hold-over from last year. It is strange that both of these guys groups are performing the worst on the team, when last year they were the stars. It would seem the common denominator is Tucker.

    Is it my imagination or does the defense play increasingly worse every game this year? I am getting to the point where I believe Tucker must go. He must be fired after this season. As others have stated, other teams have suffered major injuries/losses, and are still performing well. Across the league we were thought to have deep talent on the D. Why can't Tucker get it working?

    I

    You have to believe that coaching has something to do with the poor play, because they were not up to snuff even before the injuries started coming.

    Does anyone remember reading if Tucker was Trestman's first choice for DC?

    I'm with ya. I like Egghead coaches like Trestman. I like the cool hand with a plan... BUT considering defense I agree that the motivational coaches seem to have the edge. Hot Rod, the Ryans, the Harbaughs... Too much smoke to not be fire. Intensity and willing yourself to success is more important than I realized upon reflection.

    In a professional game, I just take it for granted that players wouldn't have it in spades.

    In a professional game, I'd expect everyone on the team to know unspoken signals too. Sad.
