WHAT?! Art Jones said....


Recommended Posts

TO BE FAIR, he can't exactly criticize them, considering he hasn't even played a snap yet. I would be much more concerned if this comment came from someone like DQ. 

 

The only guys who have played well on D so far (IMO) are Vontae, Geathers, and Henry Anderson.

A pass rush would help this squad tremendously.

I agree with you.  ZERO pass rush makes everything else terrible.  Having one may make this defense more formidable. BUT, the run defense, which has been OK to this point, wasn't good today either.  Today was a TOTAL meltdown by the defense and I have NO idea what Art (who is a really nice dude and I like BTW) is talking about.  But he IS a Pags guy so maybe he is just sticking up for his guy?

Its getting lost because of how terrible our defense is, but Vontae appears to be back to his pro bowl form. QBs are barely throwing towards him again.

Exactly. Last week, Hurns did nothing the whole game and then right when Vontae is off him, he has a 44 yard (or however long it was) TD. Vontae is amazing, but he's one player. We need to get him some MAJOR help.

Meh. The defense wasn't good, to be sure, but especially against the run, they were okay. The long run was basically half of Howard's output, and it was due to a bad angle by D'Qwell. There were a couple other sloppy fits that led to solid gains, but there were also a handful of negative carries or zero gains.

 

What I liked is that the defense seemed to be hitting much harder today than I've seen in a long time. Guys were coming to the ball almost recklessly, in the box and even in space. They missed some, too, and Anderson even got the flag on a late hit, but they all met the challenge to be physical up front. 

 

They also got smoked by Brian Hoyer.

They interviewed him on the postgame show and he said he loves the way the defense is playing / hunting..... :facepalm: 

 

He must be practicing for his next profession as a stand up comedian I guess perception from the sideline comes with rose colored glasses .

 

Image result for memes of the keystone cops  The Defense reminded me of the Keystone Cops ....

This is one of the worst defenses I've ever seen. I had more confidence in our defense after MJD torched us before the SB run. I want whatever Art Jones is smoking. 

 

I agree even the D was better who knew ?  What he is smoking is above our pay grade .

Run defense wasn't that bad if you take out the 54 yard run then Howard was at about 4 YPC.

 

Now letting Brian Hoyer throw all over them is a completely different matter.

    • From everything I've read about him, he's viewed as essentially a snake-oil salesman. He was a team chaplain, then a "character coach" for the Patriots, and now he's the Texans' VP Of Football Operations. Not to steer the discussion towards religion, but it seems as though he wields his faith as tool to manipulate, very similar to how a cult leader does. Here's an SI piece on him that does a good job illustrating how this guy works: https://www.si.com/nfl/2021/01/16/texans-chaos-deshaun-watson-unhappy-how-jack-easterby-kept-his-job   I think BoB was the face of the disfunction that we saw, but I don't know that he was the driving force behind it. There's no way you have a guy like Andre Johnson come out and say the things he's said about Easterby if there's not something there. One of the quietest, keeps to himself star WR's ever...   The problem isn't whether or not he should have input as a player. It's that he was told specifically by the owner Cal McNair that he wanted Watson's input and for him to be involved in the process, just to turn around and completely block him out of the process. Had he not expressly told Watson those things, I don't think it would be much of an issue. You can't solicit the input of your star player, then tell him to kick rocks, because this is the kind of strife that happens as a result.
    • Doesn’t that just make it seem more likely that we made the decision though? Is Phil the kind of guy that would walk away from a team that could conceivably go on a deep playoff run to coach a high school team? I have a hard time believing he’d make this decision with that specifically in mind. That job is going to be there for him in 2022. Or whenever he wants to take it full time. It’s not Saban ready to hand over the reigns at Alabama to him.    I just find it strange that Phil made the choice to walk away still having a legitimate chance to make one last postseason run. 
    • No time doesn't heal . There are a lot of fans to this day that hate the colts 35 years later . I lived up there close . Try and imagine the colts leaving indy now .????
    • Well keep in mind, they had a new OL coach too, new scheme, new calls. So it’s not surprising with the other stuff combined in there that the first half looked bleak.
