But how do you all feel about the defensive game plan? I know we did well against the run and only gave up 1TD and 3 FGs but is that enough? Is trying to stop the big play and stop the run enough to help our anemic offense? Eli did virtually whatever he wanted in the passing game, imagine if he had Plaxico Burress without the gunshot wound. I know the CBs didn't look anywhere near as good as we all expected them to, but I would have liked to have seen more man-to-man coverage from our defense, especially since that's our corners' expertise.
I want a defense that not only wants to stop the run and big plays, I want a defense that wants to stop the offensive opponents from gaining 1 yard the entire game. I want a defense that blitzes like the Ravens and Steelers and scares the crap out of offenses in the league.
Instead of our defense saying "well, at least we only gave up a FG" I want them to say "we shouldn't have given up those 25 yards, we have to limit them to 10 yards next time." I feel we are being too passive on defense and lack the aggressiveness that championship defenses have. Yes, the offense is a whole lot more passive than the defense and needs serious help, but I feel we can still improve on defense as well.
How do you all feel about the defense? More importantly, how do you all think Snyder feels about the defense?
I'm not trying to imply that Blache should be fired, but we all saw what Snyder invested into this defense. If it isn't getting the turnovers and pressure that Snyder wants he will make a change, and the change isn't likely to start with the players.
