I have never seen a team with such “good” edge rushers simply run themselves out of the play so often. Both Smith and hunter just seem to get way too far up the field on every passing play. That leaves no one there to watch the quarterback
Noticed that too. Happens way to often

It just seems like in this defense you are asking people to do things they just are not capable of either that’s on roster construction or Ed’s defensive philosophy. All year, except for game 1, it has just seemed like too much square peg into a round hole.

Fatalism has already set in
I’m old enough to know how this story ends. Never good but I still watch just in case. Miracles do happen but have been waiting for a long time for a miracle to happen

A good coach adjusts his scheme to his talent. Ed is not a good coach.

That’s exactly what it is. It’s his system no matter who you have out there instead of playing to your strengths.

Now can they hold them without getting 3 or more?

On first down, they throw incomplete.

We don't call timeout and they keep throwing. Our defense is so bad we didn't trust them to hold them there. They'd have been punting from their end zone with around 30 seconds left.

Sometimes I think us gopherholers could coach in the NFL

Ok now that all the anger is out take a breath. It’s a 3 point game at the half. Yes the defense needs to play better but so does the offense.

Still a game to be won
the offense is playing great outside of that stupid 3rd and 2 call. They'd have 28 at the half if we had even a pulse of a defense.

They have no prayer of getting off the field. This has to be the worst defense of a team that won double digit games of all time.
