Run Defense

14 posts in this topic

The run defense seems to get better and better. I'm starting to think we have a pretty reliable group here! I hope I can still stay this after the Houston game though. I like what I've been seeing overall.

Well the Titans did have a bunch of their starters out.

Our defense did play well against CJ but Locker had some runs that killed us.

The run D has been pretty solid for the past month or so.

Big test in the next two (or three) weeks with Foster and Charles. I hope Conner is okay, even though Angerer plays better against the run.

That has more to do with pass defense. I do agree that Locker has a decent run or two.

Even if they had all their starters, the thing I liked best is that everyone was in the gaps they were responsible for. Hardly any blown assignments. We played disciplined football.

Granted we played very well after we figured out that CJ likes to cutback. Although if we went against a team like Washington or San Francisco, those QBs would crush us.

And we tackled pretty well, even in open space.

"CJ2K averaged 15 rushing yards during the first three weeks of the season, then 112 in his next eight games. The Houston Texans held Johnson to 50 rushing yardslast week, but they are the No. 2 defense in the NFL. There were supposed to be opportunities Sundayagainst an Indianapolis Colts team ranked 22nd against the run.

Apparently no one told the Colts, as they held Johnson to 44 yards on 19 carries -- his lowest output since Oct. 7."

Sure is better than years past. Can't wait to see the d in action next year. I think we'll be really tough. Now our pass run just needs to get back were it once was

Over the past couple of games I have definitely seen an improvement in our open field/open space tackling. Solid

Now if we can defend the Texans cut back game in similar fashion as today I think we've got a pretty decent chance.

The run defense has definetly been playing better. The next three weeks will be the true test for our run-D. Did anyone else notice on Lockers big run on the first drive, Freeney was loafing at half speed, if he had husled that would have been a five yard run at the most, couldn't believe his lack of effort on that play, very unlike Freeney.

I don't think that was freeney. I'm pretty sure that was Mathis

No it was definetly freeney, they ran the play at Mathis and freeney was just jogging down the line, he looked like he thought someone else was going to make the play, He was going half speed.

    • Where were you last season?
    • Im not really sure what I personally categorize a slow start. I think it depends on the game. A 5 minute, 10+ play drive that ends in a missed FG vs Denver isnt as concerning as a 3 and out vs New Orleans. Putting up yards and keeping up Time of Possession early are typically signs of success later in the game.     That being said, our lack of opening drive points over the last few seasons was more concerning than I originally thought. But looking at all the results after that story I posted, we put up points in our opening drive in half of our games for the rest of the year. Hopefully that is the beginning of the end for all the slow start talk.  
    • Remember Irsay and Grigsons initial conversation while interviewing Pagano?  That players would run through a wall for him.  We believe That is the main basis on which they hired him and Irsay still obviously values this skill set.  It was never said he was or was going to be Nicolaj Tesla (sp).   Skip to what Ballard said after meeting with Pagano.  He actually said Pagano was smart.  Did anybody else catch that?  He didn't have to use that word but he did.  His reputation is as a straight shooter, so maybe there is more to our coach than meets the eye.  Or his country manners are so that he is overly polite. Main thing is that he will be our coach and the 2 of them are on the same page and we have a great defensive and RB draft class ahead.  I'm excited.
    • Pagano will never win a Super Bowl in this league. He's just not built for that stuff.
    • Mmmm. This would not be my definition. The score at the end of the first quarter would be more realistic. But all pretty academic really, it's the score at the end of the forth quarter that matters!
