Pass Defense and Pass Rush
Has anyone noticed that a lot of our problems on defense stem from the fact that our pass rush just isn't getting the job done? The aggressive, blitzing scheme that has been installed is not working because we don't have a lot of players that are effective blitzers. In the last few games, many teams have been running max protect blocking schemes against us and giving their receivers time to work against our weak secondary. Until our players learn to time and disguise their blitzes to increase the element of surprise, teams are going to be very effective converting on passing downs.
