    I think Bill Bradley's work on secondary and the emergence of Cromartie has really changed our defense. That being said, Cotrell has this D working very well right now. I'll gladly eat a little crow here the way this defense is playing.:abq2::abq1::abq2:

    The improvement seemed to happen when they inserted Cromartie, started blitzing, and got their head handed to them after the Vikings game. I'm just glad Cottrell adjusted, because IMO, his schemes were the problem earlier in the season. Now, he is utilizing the immense talent that AJ has put on this team.

    I'm happily ready for my share, pile it on my plate!

    I was ready to run Uncle Teddy out of town earlier in the season, but the "D" has been outstanding of late...if not for Volek's fumble in our own red zone, then we shut out the snow ponies tonite after having kept them without a TD in Denver earlier this season.

    We are getting good pressure on QBs, our secondary is playing well and I really like our chances in the postseason this year, no matter who we face!

    The guys are obviously buying into what the coaching staff is saying, results don't lie.

    That said, I'll take my helping of crow with a dash of Tabasco :yes:

    Yeah im going to need a plate

    I thought AJ hiring him was the worst thing he ever did and would doom this franchise

    Boy was i ever wrong, this defense has been amazing the past couple of months and has really become better than laster

    great job Ted

    I admit, I layed into Cottrell early on, much more than I layed into Norv. Cottrell has definitely helped turn this ship around. This defense is playing some of the best football I have seen in a long time, better than what Wade did last season. Jammer and Cro are lights out. It seems like Ted has adapted the defense so that it isn't entirely reliant on Merriman and Phillips getting pressure. Pressure can come from a variety of areas, and the secondary is playing better as a unit.

    Cotrell's done a damn good job after taking a lot of flak at the beginning of the season. He's grown into his job and he's made our defense stronger.

    What got my dick hard was when I heard the d-coaches were passing out route recognition sheets and then quizzes.

    The players were calling out the tendencies on que which is teaching at its best.

    These mother effers are getting it. :yes:

    This is the best secondary we've had in 25 years perhaps.

    I can not remember a better one in 40 years or really the teams entire history.

    Our corners have generally been for **** since 1960. We had Charlie McNeil in the early 60's then Gil Byrd in the 80's and then nada until Jammer.

    That is hideous.

    I'll eat crow about Teddy when he beats play-off caliber teams, like Jax, GB, or the Pats. Until then, no crow for me. :no:

    I second that......however, the defense has been much better and i said he needed to blitz more and when he did.....it got better along with Cro turning into a stud.

    Ill give Ted some props but ill hold off on giving too much till we beat a playoff team. KC and Denver suck!

    I started the thread, I don't have any self worth attached one way or another to this stuff, I just want my team to win. And bashing you hard by saying Ted blows once or twice seems a little exaggerated to me. This isn't personal for me.
