Heavyweights too much for free fallin' G-Men

Cofield's dead on... sometimes you just have to do things differently. Different players, different calls, etc. This defense is just not the right 11 guys on the field. The missing pass rush is exposing the secondary, and the uninspiring play by the linebackers makes the line think they've got to stop the run at the line or it's a long open field run. No squad on defense trusts the other two squads today... each thinks the other two aren't doing their job so they have to compensate. What scares me is I don't know if Sheridan has the experience or confidence to make the right changes. He may be buying into the "everybody just has to get it done" aka hope is a strategy mindset. Look... Sheridan is done if this defense doesn't turn around, so he might as well do something if he's gonna go down anyway. Get Clint Sintim in there at SAM and send him, alternate Kehl at WILL with Boley until he's ready to go a whole game, and spell Pierce with Goff more often. Get Canty, Osi, Kiwi and Tuck on the line when you need to get after the QB, or Robbins and Cofield on obvious running plays at DT. The Chargers O-line is playing backups in the middle, so overwhelm them and keep Boley on LT out of the backfield. Get aggressive! And for heaven's sake, somebody step up into Strahan's "stomp you out!" leadership role and fire this defense up! Where's the passion? Where is the fire? What the heck's the worse that can happen Sheridan... you lose the game by doing something different than sticking what has earned you 3 straight losses already? What if the Chargers lay yet another 40 burger on you after you decide to keep doing what hasn't worked so far, hoping something magical happens, and you lose 4 in a row?
