I hate to say it but Brown is just not getting it done. He stood out like a sore thumb with his inability to change direction and his lack of quickness. How many balls that he would have picked a few years ago have hit the ground in the secondary?
Its not helping that the corners are often playing a "trail technique" that, while forcing the receivers inside puts the corners short and on the outside- in the worst position to make a play on the ball against a short throw.
You have to have safeties who can cover ground in this defense, and we are one short. It doesn't help that certain linebackers are being neutralized. Teams are just going away from Briggs now. Payne is playing good, but not great yet. We have no blitz that works- faking the blitz is just slowing down Urlacher even more.
But hey- at least we finally have a running threat to open up the passing game.

The speed is gone on our defense as is the coaching, time for a makeover.

While the D is showing holes in certain aspects of their game, tehy are fixable and don't think they're not seeing them themselves........I think they'll get their act together and step up.
If we win the Next 3 games you can practically put us as NFC North Champs.
Detroit at home
Tenn at home
Next month will be big

I'm proud of Mike Brown. After all the injuries he's been through, it's amazing he's still able to play. If it ever gets to the point where he feels like he's hurting the team, he'll retire, trust me. Payne is playing well and that's great. The major problem with this team is the unbelievable lack of pressure from the D-line. Our D is starting to make 2007 look more like a lack of talent and effort as opposed to lack of health. Please turn it around...NOW!!!
