Defense is pretty good compared to what we had in the past I think they did their job not 100 percent but decent. I think this game comes down to mr stafford Pep ham and the referees calling nonsense on us but I have a feeling luck will pull through in the end like always.

Defense is a lot better this year than last. We have new guys so consistency is HUGE and we aren't playing good ball throughout the WHOLE game for both sides of the ball - defense and offense. It's like we play great for 1 quarter, MAYBE 2 quarters. Then we get tired and have to pull a comeback win out of our butts.

defense is... inconsistent! They had a very bad start, allowed two very easy TD for the Dolphins but then played pretty good in my eyes, some pressure on Tannehill, forced a turnover. The main problem in my eyes is that Offense and Defense can't get on the same page for a whole game. It's either Offense starts well and Defense slow or vice versa. Both sides have a good and a bad half but to win in the NFL especially against the good teams you have to play two good halfes on both sides of the ball. And thats what we are missing right now. It's not like we are playing like crap we are just to inconsistent and we make to many small mistakes.

Inconsistent. Some drives they looked great. Some they looked lost.

Yeah that's what it boils down too, they technically played solid for 3 quarters. We just need them to play solid for 4 lol. After the first q they got in gear and started to make some plays. They only scored 7 pts in the second half. The only problem was we had a meger 3 pts in the second half going up against a Dolphins D that IMO didn't even play that well.

They were slow out of the gate no question.  Settled down for the second quarter and right out of the locker room.  Really they did okay in the second half they just need to do a better job of coming up with ways to get the other team off the field.  They could use another play maker on defense.

Number 41,23,and 28 questionable.  We spend too much $$ on offense and not enough on DEFENSE.  To much arm tackling in secondary and not physically hit with a hard blow like # 30.

We spent almost all the free agent money this off-season on defense plus our first round pick on defense and traded our second round pick in this years draft for a defensive player.  Add in Redding last year and we spent A LOT of money on defense since Pagano and Grigson came in.

The defense is pretty much the same as it's always been.  They give up a lot of yards and can't seem to get off the field when we really need them too.  They have a couple of good stops here and there but give up some big plays here and there also.  They need the offense to score a lot of points and this offense just isn't ready to do that right now.  They also need special teams to play well and special teams didn't play very well today.  Miami brought out every kickoff to the 30 and that put more pressure on the defense.  The defense really needs a DPOY on it.

I guess you are right. Just frustrated maybe we did not get the right ones. #92 is very good but needs more time, I think we should have kept #49 because he would have been helpful later in year for pass rushing. The one we trade for is got hurt early and no use out of him.

Inconsistent. Still not sold on the FA's brought in on that side of the ball because most weren't even starters on their previous teams. Yes they got bigger on the d-line and supposedly stronger at the point of attack but I'm not seeing DIFFERENCE MAKERS. Same with the lb's brought in to fit the "aggresive" 3-4 scheme but where are the playmakers? MAYBE Toler a defensive back. Only Landry seems to have that inflict pain mentality on that side of the ball. No team fears this defense right now. I point out the Dolphins only had 20 yds rushing last week and ran when they wanted to today while also passing for over 300yds. The subpar Raiders struggled at HOME in the 1st half today against the Jags (worst team in the nfl?) yet gave us fits and probably should've the game if not for the red zone ints. The knock on Mac as the dc in San Diego was that he wasn't aggressive enough and his defense was too vanilla at times. I don't know if Chuck needs to be more active with the defense especially with the work in progress known as the offense but I dread to think what will happen when the Colts play the good teams. Houston we have a problem.....

    • I would take a good OL over good WR.   Doesn't matter how good the WR is if the QB is running for his life.  A good OL will let a QB shine.  A good QB will make WRs look good.
    • We were one of the least blitzing teams in football. Our guys would have had some good to great numbers with a slight increase in pressures. Setting an edge or containment is also an undervalued trait. With the rise in scrambling QBs I think we need to evaluate these DEs better. Lawson is more complete than the.numbers show.
    • Blue jersey with the white pants, and the road whites are the best.
    • Lets put aside the evaluation of our EDGE rushers as average(which I disagree with especially on the EDGE). The problem is that those are now gone, so what we have now is not average even in your evaluation - it's the substitutes for the average ones that are FAs now(Houston, Autry, Muhammad).   So now our options are several really :   First, try to resign those and hope the aging of Houston and Autry don't deteriorate their play even more(they don't have the potential we are looking for either way... at this point of their careers they are what they are and it's more likely they go down than up in production and play). So... maybe we kick the can down the roat with them... so what are we willing to pay for them, then?    Second option - trade for someone with good potential... or already good? Would you give up #21 for Von Miller or someone of the sort?    Third option - get someone from the FAs. IMO the average ones available will likely be improvement over what we had last year. But are they worth the money they will command?    Fourth option - just run with what we have and draft a DE high hoping he will be useful player early with potential for more down the road?    I think I like some combination of 3 and 4 the most. I don't want us to go into the draft NEEDING to draft a DE. This IMO is a recipe for disaster and for reaching on prospects(or for teams to jump us for specific player knowing we need to address the position). So what I would do is ... get one of those average-ish DEs on the market. All they cost is money... and this is money in a depressed market. Maybe they turn into bargains? Then play it by ear and if you find good value in the draft - add more pieces there.   What would be your plan for DE? I really, REALLY don't like going just no. 4. Maybe 1+4 with short term deals on Autry and Muhammad can be a good option too...   Yeah, I wouldn't mind that but then again - I still want us to try to address DE somehow... with some players that can at least be average-ish... Would you go into the draft or god forbid the next season with just Kemoko, Banogu, Lewis and Kameron Cline? What would your expectation be for that type of rotation?  Agree here, but again... you still need at least some base level of quality of pass-rusher. Otherwise Buckner will just get doubled every damn snap and even his production and disruption will be diminished.
