For the the league last run defense as of last season and looking like this one as well...there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. Too bad it is from a freight train that would be Larry Johnson of Kansas City next week at Arrowhead! Ditka ripped Raider management apart for bad draft choices and bad signings. Sad to say but it is true. Normally I don't agree with criticism of teams I cheer for but I had to laugh as to how true they were. Tonight they were the Sliver and Slack. The lone positives were Russell, Fargas, Miller and Asomounga.

True story, two years later its the same stuff. Different coach, differ qb, different rb's, different everything except Davis. Same results.

I'm watching the game again and Rob Ryan is horrible.

Horrible play calling on defense... he needs to go. The whole defense was garbage.

Why was Hall playing zone when he's not a zone corner? :hi:

tr actually likes Ryan. :rock:

I do like Ryan. Because he's a good DC. The personnel is horrendous. Not his fault, but I suppose he should "adapt" to what dude is giving him...it's just hard when you have zero run stoppers.

Ryan has good personnel.

Why didn't he blitz vs Denver?

Why didn't Hall play man to man vs. Denver?

Ryan sucks, Hall sucks. Why pay 70 million for a man we've never seen play our system? We wont win till Al retires, or passes away.

Good personnel? He has an absolutely awesome secondary and Burgess.

Burgess is a one trick pony. outside of pass rushing, he brings nothing.

Well, if you agree with the rest of what I said, you're agreeing...it's not Ryan's fault the D sucks.

Awesome secondary, Burgerss, and good LB's (Thomas Howard and Kirk Morrison).

He needs to get the job done. Our defense has been horrible these last couple of years.
