    Phil Emery was interviewed on Carmen & Jurko this morning. Espn100 has posted the audio of the full interview.

    It is really interesting to listen to Phil. They discuss a lot of the topics disussed here: the relative value of CB vs Safety, the role of rebuilding the DLine in rebuilding a defense, etc.

    Pretty fair assessment. Three identified issues with the way the defense played. All have been mentioned to various degrees and some have been explained away more than some others, but the three factors were:
    1) Injuries (no real fault here)
    2) Didn't play well with the players they had (coaching / maybe the losing Lovie disgruntled factor also)
    3) Not good enough depth (Emery)

    We don't know to what extent each would have helped because if Emery had better backups and the coaches had a greater percentage fault, would it have fixed the issues? All three were contributors to some degree that I'm not sure can be accurately measured.

    I believe that items 1 and 3 have been addressed completely, with number two having been addressed completely or partially (don't know for sure at this point). We are definitely in better shape than we were at the end of last year, and looking back, I think better than we were last year even when everyone was healthy. I can't wait to see these guys play.
