  • Lou says they never ran a 2 gap system

    New DC says they have never ran a 2 gap system since he's been there. I find that to be a little alarming as we all thought this would be the easy fix for the defense.
    Can we sign this guy?

    Yeah we were kicking that whole thing around on the 5 things about Lou thread. That comment is definitely a head scratcher.

      I made a post about this under the Capn Lou thread. Being an NFL defensive coordinator is a lot more complex than choosing a "1 gap" or "2 gap" defense. If that's all there was anyone could become a great DC within 1 to 2 weeks. 1 week if they guessed right the first time, 2 weeks if they guessed wrong.

        But as we know these guys are too stubborn to change. Even if it means losing their job. My point was we all thought Coyle was running a 2 gap scheme and it didn't fit our personnel. Our thinking was an easy start to fixing the defense would be a switch to a 1 gap scheme and turn them lose and let them be aggressive. It appears it's a deeper issue. Maybe just game planning and play calling. Whatever it is I'm afraid we are in for more if the same.

          I hope not. I think a lot of the issues are with the LB unit in total. Let's see how we look next Sunday against the Titans, who played pretty well against the Bills.
