I want Tenuta back! Sure we got burned at times but it was exciting to watch our defense rush players from all over the field. This bend but don't break crap sucks.
What I don't understand is that I thought we learned this lesson last year.I would like to see Roof out of the booth and out the sideline. Didn't he do that last year? The thing most bothersome to me is we play with zero fire or emotion.
They would have murdered each other. Two alpha malesvs pathetic every week?
Tenuta defenses were not that helter skelter...at all...go back and pick a year while he was at GT and there is 1-2 bad games like any D. Right now, EVERY GAME is a bad game for us. We ranked in the top 35 in D under JT something like 6 of 7 years IIRC. We haven't sniffed that in 8 years with Pauls DC selections. There is no doubt in my mind if JT Stayed at tech as DC, or paul allowed him to stay (not sure which) we would not be in this situation.

But honestly, I don't really care if it's him...we just need someone who attacks on defense. The keep plays in front of you approach where we wait for the other team to make a mistake is an old school philosophy that has run its course.
Nope not kidding because I saw more than just Defensive woes....We can't pass block...special teams suck.... Head Coach needs to go.... Why would you expect a 4th DC to work under Paul Johnson when the first three did not????
This. In truth, I think our biggest problem is recruiting. i do not see the talent on the field defensively. We have no speed, especially in the front seven. We are easily outflanked. Our D linemen are often pushed 5 years downfield on run plays (just isolate on them and watch, you'll see what I am talking about). With little talent on the field, there isn't much any D Coordinator could do, But this is ridiculous. I do agree that last year we seem to switch to being more aggressive and this year we seem to have gone back to bend but don't break. No matter what. I'd rather lose being aggressive, even without the talent to run a decent defense.
CPJ puts all his effort on recruiting for his "unstoppable" offense. The athletes he starts on D are mainly those who can possibly flip to A backs or B backs when needed. He is limited on the numbers he can get so he tries to live by outscoring others. The philosophy just doesn't work in this pass happy era. Last year we were lucky with the number of takeaways. This year the talent differential is plain to see, lacking more on D than on O, but light on both sides of the ball.
And you know this how? Not trying to be snarky, I've seen this posted before and haven't read anything to factually supports this contention. Does it make sense? Think about it for a minute, why would PJ neglect D recruiting? He knows his O can put up points. Would he not be equally cognizant that better D actually makes the O better?
