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.

    • I missed it. I'm watching the Mets game and there has been no mention of this today.  I hope I get to see it later. I like both players very much. And Mike helped us Mets fans briefly forget about 9/11 with his unforgettable home run the first game back after the tragic event. I was happy to be there to see it.    Congrats to Mike and Junior.
    • I agree with equating the substance abuse test to somewhat of an IQ test. It is also a discipline test. Those who are not too bright or disciplined will get caught.   It seems that players take amphetamines to give them an edge or greater confidence in games.  Most will not use them in the offseason because there are no games to be played. So, those who take amphetamines are likely not to test positive because they are not tested during the season. Right?     I am definitely not a proponent of legalizing marijuana, but the NFL's position on this is akin to the marijuana laws that have gotten poor and less educated folks imprisoned for possession.  If the NFL is testing for illicit drugs, then they should test for them randomly anytime in the year, not only from April to August. JMHO
    • Just watched Mike Piazza and my favorite baseball player of all time Ken Griffey Jr. get inducted into Coopers Town! Very well deserved for both men! Congrats! Great memories watching The Kid as a kid. Best baseball player I have ever seen play  
    • **UPDATE**   I set the Draft Order by reverse rankings from last year. As of note, I used the playoff results and not the final season results for setting the draft order.   As it stands here is the draft order by Team Name: 1. Punters be Winning too 2. Team IndyD4u 3. Mike Strahans Tooth Gap 4. Luck Be A Lady 5. Team Coltman 6. Indy Bluefire 7. Swoope There It Is 8. Go Pack Go 9. Phillip my Ball to 12.5 PSI 10. Team Hulce   I also edited the LM Note a slight bit.  Instead of suggesting replacing a WR for a Flex, I changed it to replacing a TE for a Flex.  This is only a suggestion and not what will happen.  Must be approved by a supermajority 7/10.  p   If there are teams that do not respond by deadline or do not wish to resume, they will be removed and spots will open up.  This means Draft order spots will open up.  Starting from #1 position down, you will be given the option to either move UP one or DOWN one spot, depending on what is open around you.     After all positions are determined, new entrants will get to select their spots from  the remaining available; in the order of reply to this topic.   Tentatively set the draft date to Sept. 3rd at 9pm.  Obviously this will change, but wanted to get it set up for now.        
    • If we get the run game going and make more of an effort to run the ball that will help some.....Otherwise I'm expecting a 20th or worse defense yards per game average
