Don't believe coaching was the issue on defense to be honest.
I didn't see intensity in anyone other than Suggs and Dumervil (at times).
Dumervils wasn't exactly helpful as it was drawing penalties, he needed to be smarter about that.
The bye right now could not have come at a better time. We had a D-Line with various injuries, and that really hurt us today. Ngata has some issues, Spears is dealing with his thigh injury, Canty has some, so all in all our defense has nagging injuries that hopefully they can rest and heal over the next two weeks. I do not expect them to play like that again this season. I certainly hope they don't with RB's like AP looming on our schedule. If we come roaring back after the bye and win two divisional games, hope is still alive.
As for the offense, they really have stepped up in a major way. It started at the end of the second half against Green Bay and I think is carrying on.
It's simple, let the offense run through Joe and we will win football games. The run is simply not very effective this year and once we let Joe take the reigns of the offense we will start winning. He is our best player on offense. We need to start treating him like it. I liked the offensive lines progression, they looked solid. Don't get me wrong, they had some troubles, but they were solid, and run blocking slightly improving has given me hope. I think we went into this game unhealthy on the D-Line and the bye will be beneficial to us.
