Shouldn't we be playing more in your face man to man?

    Just seeing what the Giants are doing on defense on NFL Playbook. With their great pass rush they are playing a lot of tight man to man outside and starting to dominate and crank up the sacks.

    Shouldn't we be doing this a bit more? Seems our corners are good enough and big enough to slow guys down at the line. But it seems our guys are always 10 or 12 yards off the line. Do you think we have the personnel on the corners to do this?

    Would like to see more of this and see the whole defense more aggressive like the front seven, even if it does mean some more 5 yard slants turning into TDs.

    I'd like to see us try it. I especially think we should've against the bastarrd pats. I don't have as move faith in our CBs as you do but I would like to see it tried.

    Yep, fully agree, if we play the Pats again we have to get tight on the receivers.

    I think the concern is the safeties. I don't really trust our safeties. If one of the WRs get past our CBs will the safety be able to stop him.


    But yea I agree I'd like to see a more in your face aggressive defense.

    I've been asking for this same thing for a while. We have a front seven capable of crushing most passing pockets in the league and fast enough to chase down the scramblers. Relentless pressure pays off more and more as the game goes on. It also traps RB's behind the line, since teams need the extra blocking. Our DB's showed signs of having learned to tackle last time out, so let's go for it.

    Absolutely. I still like Weddle's brains, I'm just hoping we can pick up a safety who likes to crush bones into powder.

    Weddle reminds me so much of Polamalu. Just everywhere. Once he's competely up to speed and has more XP points he should be a starter for a long time. Now we need a Sean Taylor S to punish fools.
