    defensive problems

    I laid in bed last night wondering what was our problem on d was. This is what I came up with.

    Little - His head is other places not on the football field
    Lewis/Pickett - over-hyped and can be block with one blocker on a run in the middle allowing the blockers to the next level
    Fisher - I like this kid, and seems to have some potential
    Pisa - Has a fire burning, but has lacked any sense of direction or has not got any sort of leadership as this level.
    Chillar - Young, also is going to suffer from the lack of leadership
    Thomas - Plays with NO heart, suppose to be the field captain and shows little intensity for a middle LB.
    Fisher/Grose/Butler/Garrett - INJURIES
    Williams - Its time to admit his age. He still plays like a corner at a safety position
    Arch - because of weak front levels, Adam has to play too close to the line where is under sized and often gets taken out of the picture. We are ruining this kid.

    The bottom line, once you take Jackson out of the equation rest of the players are just playing and walking through motions. We have no one that motivates this team and shows the intensity needed to light fires. Our leadership is very poor. Williams is a good leader off the field, but on, he is just another body.

    I think it is a combination of things. First and foremost, Arch got blown up today. Could not have been a worse game. He missed the tackle on Griffin to set an ominous tone. He was carried on Crumpler's shoulder for 10 yards on Vick's flip to the 2 and he was blown out of the hole on Dunn's .... He got blindsided by a nose-breaking jolt ... on some of these he had to play close to the line because there was nowhere to go. He was man-handled and couldn't shed blockers. That was a self-ruinous performance.
