How the heck do the Chargers fix their defense?

I am tired of watching this defense sit back with the bend but don’t break approach. We don’t have a defense that can actually endure that type of play. We never had the defense to be able to do that. We allow quarterbacks to sit back in the pocket and pick this team apart.

We need to bring the heat and create some confusion for the quarterbacks. We have to start taking some risks on defense. We will get burned on some plays, but we will also make some big things happen as well. Let Melvin Ingram, Jerry Attaochu and Kyle Emanuel chase after the quarterback as often as possible and let them force some bad throws.
Mike McCoy and John Pagano are perfect for each other though since neither of them like tot take a risk. I don’t know if we will see this actually happening.
