    all of our losses can be laid at their feet as far as I’m concerned! They have been atrocious all year long and still just as bad as the beginning of the year. Keep losing I don’t care but nearly the whole draft should be spent on defenders! And our D coordinator should not see a year 2, screw you Vance your terrible! Terrible schemes and execution all year as they stop no one!

    I would be OK with firing him now. Honestly, ranked 30 going into the game. We let a 2 win team roll up 30. Yes, I do believe that firing a coach mid-season rarely does anything positive but there are literally only 2 spots further down the ladder we could possibly go and there isn't much difference between 30 and 32 ranked defenses.

    Maybe just maybe a fresh set of eyes improves the defense just a bit.

    Our D coordinator got taken to school today. So many screens nullified our soft zone.

    Vance Joseph inherited Reddick and this putrid group of safeties and middle linebackers. Give him a year

    I have seen enough. When you are that bad on defense it's more than personnel on the field.

    Maxx Williams is a TE, not on defense.

    We aren’t firing a coordinator mid season two years in a row despite the fact it’d be 100% deserving.

    I’m gonna have to say I don’t see that Jospeh is the problem. There were sooo many many mental break downs on D. Reddick alone had like 3. If you want to put guys not knowing where they should line up or understanding where their help is or simply how to read a screen pass and come up and make a tackle on Johnson then so be it.

    Even when guys were where they where supposed to be they just weren’t making plays. They had Winston out there looking like Barry Sanders breaking ankles on slow motion jukes. Baker is a solid player but for the 2nd game in a row he got absolutely trucked by a guy on his way into the endzone. Guys were committing stupid penalties.

    You can’t have such a severe lack of talent at each level of the defense not to mention seemingly only 1 or 2 high IQ guys and think a new DC will all of a sudden be the solution. Personally I think Johnson is doing the best he can with what he has to work with.

    Exactly. Being down good players is one thing.. being outcoached every week by your opposing coordinator is another...

    Reddick's ability to compromise the integrity of the defense makes it tough to really evaluate the scheme.

    That was the first time I have been mad at Max Williams, I will give him a pass because he has done more good than bad... but now, Peterson, Johnson and Reddick can mosey on

    The reason Joseph is the problem is that his defense is a problem. There's no excuse for the missed communicatons and penalties - it's a reflection of bad coaching.

    It is no coincidence that both the Cardinals and Santa Claus wear red & white.
