We looked over the offensive side of the football yesterday and gave each position a grade for their performance. Today we are going to go over the defensive side of the football. This will be an interesting grading, because we have played like booty for the last few games. Just like in John Pagano fashion, he will put out a couple of gems, but then you will be shaking your head wondering what he is doing in the next game. I am so sick and tired of him running the show as the defensive coordinator on this team.

Is it the talent on the roster or is it the scheme that Pagano has? What is Pagano’s scheme in the first place? Whenever he faces off against the Denver Broncos he seems to disguise a ton of blitzes against them, but when he faces off against another team, he doesn’t even want to send more than 4 after the quarterback. He hurts my soul!

Anyway, we are looking at the performance from each of the position groups on the defense. We are not looking at the potential, just the performance.
