    Does anyone else see the lack of fire in the defense? I know we have 3 changes that I look at on paper and shouldn't make this much of a difference.

    1. Weddle starting
    2. Cason starting
    3. Merriman hurt

    My problem is everytime I look up Cromartie is 10 yards off a receiver...does anyone else notice this? We have the athletic ability to man up and were not doing it. I say fire Cottrell and promote Ron Rivera. He understands the mentality a defense should have coming from Chicago where they define defense year in and year out.

    This has got to stop. Rivers didn't blow that game today because we played well enough on offense to make it happen. But when Trent Edwards is nearly perfect, the defense isn't checking enough at the line to throw the receivers off their routes.

    Our biggest motivator is out, and we all know Norv and Cottrell aren't going to do any yelling...i don't get that. Just like Norv not going for it on 4th and 1...he just kind of motions his clip board to the field for the punt team to go out there. Get in the face of the defense tell em to step it up. Maybe Rivera will bring a fire to the defense.

    We should pull a trick out of what the Mets did this year and fire cottrell and tell him to find his own way back to SD.

    Exactly.

    Now's the time to lower my expectations. 8-8 is what I think we will end up at. Anything better would be a pleasant surprise.

    The sad thing is were wasting our precious time with LT..it just makes me sick to think that an 8-8 season comes from a team this talented...and to think that AJ still won't re-sign Merriman...yet he re-signs Castillo who has how many sacks this year?

    After a game like this I always got back to those threads on the "other" board from that Redskin fan dude that told many stories about Norv in Wash.

    Makes me sad, very sad

    I agree. Even if this team squeeks into the playoffs, anything less than a SB is below expectation. AJ needs to correct his error with the coaching staff by replacing Norv with a coach that is worthy of this team and allowing that coach to pick his staff. His meddling with assistants and giving the team to Norv will end up costing us two seasons in the short window of opportunity people always talk about.

    That's what I've been saying all year. Except for last week's game, the team is not playing like they 'want' to win. No heart.
