    Tackling has been Horrid. Don't give me that biz about Vanilla D that's an excuse. You still gotta tackle.

    It's understandable if they're trying to minimize risk of injuries. Making those dangerous tackles increases the chance of getting hurt unnecessarily.

    you just mentioned that you thought they LOOKED better last year, nothing about tackling

    so...i answered accordingly...

    tackling was definitely questionable, but the starters picked it up, and some backups played nicely too,
    don't ignore the good either

    Wayyyyyyyyyyy to early to doubt the new DC.

    Like everyone has stated were running a vanilla defense and doing a lot of rotating so they can get film on the backups.

    After the great preseason we had back in 2011, I told myself I will never let preseason play affect how I feel they will play when the real games start.

    same with observing the lions' 4-0 preseason turn into a 0-16 regular season nightmare

    That's the rub, is it really a vanilla defense and poor basic skills or is that the Rams are being cautious--that's why wait and see sucks! I knew 2011, despite 4-0 record in preseason, would be horrid regular season and posted constant complaints that Bradford was little more then a tackling dummy with the J. McDanials spread system

    Re: Defense

    going 4-0 in the preseason is usually a death sentence it seems....note to self...if 3-0...do everything you can to just lose...or forfeit...or play the 4-5th stringers

    It's the preseason. Let's wait until the regular season to judge how good or bad the defense is.
