I like the Defense, it’s somewhat vulnerable to being nickel and dimed but it forces Offenses to be methodical and sustain long drives and be mistake free . It depends on who you are playing and if you can frustrate the opposing QB into pushing the issue deep when a dump off is available .
My issue is they need to adapt , mix it up , and when you dont have a lead or you are down by any point total that will become a two score deficit late & allowing a QB to nickel and dime you into FG position and basically a win makes no sense.
This type of Defense and playing it consistently relies on you attacking early , building a lead and forcing teams to play catch up and make mistakes because the chunk plays should not be available .
When the talent could be a little better to pull it off and the refs do not fuck you on the regular it’s a stellar defensive plan . We did this well against Arizona and Greenbay only to blow it with chunk plays and the Refs doing us wrong .
Something is wrong when Cousins picks you apart , and he does it over and over again and you sit back and continue to allow it . That frail little bastard needed to have his caged rattled and get smacked down & a hurt put on him , instead he never once hit the floor . That shit can’t happen. It needs fixing fast
