I guess that's where we disagree. There's no doubt in my mind JDR had a huge impact in our defense learning how to play.
Our defense has gone through how many bad defensive coordinators? There's something to be said there on how the players developed or didnt in general. I believe a coach can most definetly have an impact on player development. Jim Harbaugh taught Alex smith how to approach a defense. Singletary just threw him out there and said throw it deep.
