Our defensive scheme is bad, our offense is too inconsistent, but more importantly we are not getting any turnovers. We turn it over, but we can't create any ourselves. That spells disaster and a quick playoff exit, that is if we reach the playoffs. A great team spells no stress, you know what you have. A bad team spells no stress, you know what you have and expect to lose. A mediocre team spells stress, it can kill a fan, you never know what you are going to get. We got those two super bowl wins and have been cursed ever since.

We are young--enigmatic and streaky. IF--we make the playoffs, I expect us to go out guns a blazing in a 1st round loss to Indy. We lost the TO battle yesterday 2-1 I believe --Fumble/INT and Barrett had a nice INT off of a deflection. We were not going to beat Carolina in BOFA stadium. That's what makes our losses to jokeland by 21 and @ KC by 15 so disheartening--but as I wrote above--we are VERY young.
Lack of turnovers is a staple of a Slowik defense. Ask GB fans if you dont believe me. He took a highly ranked defense and in one year, they destroyed the record for least amount of INTs, most passing yards given up, etc.

it's hard when you play so far off the wr's and arm tackle

I know we have hired and fired DC's the last few years, and I really wanted Slowik to work out, but I'm afraid he's not the answer, and giving him another year at DC will be wasting this organization's time. We need a DC that is going to come in and attack the offenses, someone who is going to come in and allow Champ to be Champ and play in your face coverage with the secondary. Someone who is going to come in and realize when we are not getting pressure from the front four, to blitz and reak havoc with the linebackers to cause pressure. I have no confidence in Slowik and this defense. We need a serious change. He needs to be fired as soon as our season is over and we should hire Gregg Williams to run this defense.
