What is wrong with this D?

  1. Bad coaching or scheme.

  3. Nothing is wrong. We're just as good as those teams like Seattle.

  4. It's just "preseason" and those other teams like Seattle are just better preseason teams.

    Perhaps, and I wish him the very best. I would wholeheartedly recommend him for an immediate promotion to HC to any of the other 31 other franchises. Preferably one in our division.

    Did we, or did we not go 1-1 and almost 2-0 against the packers with the worst defense in the league?

    Ric, How long did it take you to type this? You had to be laughing uncontrollably in between each key stroke. I thank you sir for such a great humor break. This thread was getting way too serious. +1 to you sir.

    I think it's important to establish criteria for this kind of eval. We can replay last yea a million times and assign blame to coaches, injuries, personnel, motivation, weather, schedule, or anything else. Last year is dead. Tucker, rightly or wrongly has an X on his chest.

    What does he need to do this year to prove he doesn't suck? What's your criteria for a DC sucking vs not sucking?
    Is it a statistical number?
    Is it the number of games the team wins?
    Is it playoff appearance devoid of stats?
    Is it Superbowl appearance with stats?
    What would redeem Tucker in your mind, or maybe, if we're trying to be objective, what in general do you expect from a D coordinator? What will prevent you from calling him names and demanding a pink slip?

    What role does Trestman play in all of this and how are you, as a fan, keeping him accountable?

    And I didn't give Lovie a inch, and batted down all the excuses people made for him. I wanted him gone 2 years after the SB when he couldn't figure out the O and the D was starting to fall apart. And yet here I am now telling people it's to early to tell.

    So take a deep breath, pull up the Packers roster from last year and start naming their key starters that were injured last year....trust me it's not a long list it shouldn't take long.

    One way to put it. I would have phrased it as "1-1 and almost 2-0 against the packers with the second best offense in the league. Held back only because of having the second worst defense in the league."
    Both are correct. Both emphasize different viewpoints. It always goes back to figures can lie. It depends on the interpretation.
