First game i have been able to watch this year and wow my high school team could beat this team......we pay Lovie $5M a year for this garbage? Wow he sure did hit the lottery.....this charade needs to stop

If this secondary could step their level of play up we'd be okay on defense!

You can only draw up the plays but the players have to make them! At some point these players gotta make a play! Come on now! Lovie can't do it for them! Turnovers and just flat out weak play or effort is killing us each game! We need better players! That's on Lovie and staff!

This has been Lovie ball for what 5 years now? Other than a 4 game stretch last season, it's been a disaster. I was a big Lovie supporter up until our first game this year. It's time to rebuild yet again.

I wont judge IW harshly until he can run some plays outside of the shadow of his own end zone.
Other than "protect the ball when you're running on the interior, kid."

we'll see if he can do anything as the game slows down for him.

I buy that to a certain extent, however, I don't think our defensive schemes put our players in a position to succeed. I also don't see our coaches making any in-game changes and our players don't seem to improve from game to game. That is all on the coaches. Not to mention our horrific tackling.

Agree to an extent! But when you're standing right next to the receiver and you let him just catch the ball... that's not in the coaches! That's on the player! Hobbs specifically!
