    Yes, and none of those other top 5 defenses ever play against poor offenses.

    Great logic...


    Henne sucks because the Jets stopped him yet he scores TD after TD against Houston.


    Same garbage I had to hear after Luck did **** against us too.

    The numbers are the numbers... We're always top 10 on D with Rex here and always will be. Yet people always try to make excuses for it.

    Wink

    the run D is awful. Pouha and Devito have been major disappointments this year. Mo Wilk is carrying the load.

    Points allowed and forced turnovers means nothing.

    It's all about yardage when evaluating a defense.

    Maybe if our Failchez and the offense was worth a dick then our D wouldn't constantly be on the field and tired. When they're constantly on the field, the Offense is going to score.
    I think the 82 yard swing pass that the guy went untouched started the 21 points in 52 second thing.

    The run D has been really puzzling. Had Jax committed more to the run yesterday we probably lose that game. Not good when Montell Owens, an undrafted scrub, is gashing you up the middle. We need to address that this offseason.

    I don't get caught up in defensive rankings. Especially yardage. Because if you were going to judge defense by yardage, the Jags had a better defense than us yesterday. So theres that.

    Our Defense has not been good this year. There are no great defenses, there are a handful of good defenses and then you can bunch the next 15 or so together.

    Defenses can take more chances with large leads.
    Do we ever have a large lead?

    Conversely, we're ranked 30th in Total Offense, 30th in Passing Offense, and 11th in Rushing Offense. We're only ahead of Arizona and Jacksonville in Total Offense.

    Damn, it's a good thing we have Murk Sanchurz to save us from our 8th ranked D and 11th ranked running game.
    By the end of the season, we'll have both a top 10 Defense and a top 10 Rushing offense.

    Many Fans will say it doesn't count, because we played easy teams at the end.

    Sanchez will be the lowest ranked QB in the NFL, with the most turnovers of any QB in the NFL.

    Many Fans will say that doesn't count, because Sanchez had nothing to work with.

    And the beat rolls on.

    Bench Sanchez.

    Amazing how things change... We are a laughing stock yet we are probably going to finish 8-8...

    And now people want to get rid of Rex even though the guy has never had a losing season with this team, and made it to two AFC championship games despite having a bottom 5 QB.

    Don't worry, SAR, Sanchez is still developing.........


    Top 10 D.

    7 games against teams over .500 allowing 29 points per game against those teams.

    2nd season in a row without a quality win. 2009 and 2010 teams beat the Pats once in the regular season.

    It's fun to twist numbers when the entire last, what, 5 or 6 games of your schedule involve the raw sewerage of the NFL, eh?

    Woody takes everybody with optimism to the bank, sodomizes you and cashes in with your MAC card.

    That's the genius of Rex, why design an offense capable of building a large lead? That's for the other guys. Give me bumbling incompetence every day of the week.

    All joking and stat-twisting aside, we all can see we suck in all phases of the game. We're 1-11 against teams that end their seasons with winning records since 2010. Not time for a parade methinks.

    People want to get rid of Rex because he's a lousy head coach. Well, the smart people at least.

    If I am dumb for wanting to keep a 4-year Head Coach who has yet to have a losing season and puts up consistent top 10 Defenses and runnign games, so be it.

    There is only one head I want on a pike this coming offseason, and I know I'm not getting it, so

    Rabble-rabble on, Sanchez is innocent, it's all that Fat Rex fellow over there!
