    We are the kings of hot takes ‘round here. That being said, he’s not wrong. He’s gotta play better. He’s played like ass since, well, the Raiders game.

    I think losing Hicks is a big deal tho.

    Yeah I’m all for Mack failing but there’s something about old players spouting off that rubs me the wrong way sometimes. Like they’re looking for attention or something. Maybe because old timers are always taking shots at Steph. Ex players are the biggest hypocrites.

    Love that old Raiders (mostly) remain loyal to the franchise.

    I brought up the fact that Bear defense was already legit before Khalil went there. Some of you didn't want to hear it. Hicks is their best player. Doesn't hurt to have that kind of talent next to you. No surprise their defense has looked pedestrian since he's been missing games.

    Did I ever tell y’all that defensive ends don’t win ———- Ah fuck it!

    Really? So you’re saying without Midget Wilson the Hags would be 3-7?

    You’d be correct. QBs are important.

    I don’t see it that way. These are retired Bear players who know what it takes to win.
    Mack is the highest paid player on the team and should be leading the defense.
    He’s a dud.
    He hasn’t been a factor at all.
    HOF my ass.

    And taking it public like that is even worse.

    Having said that, it's clear that Khalil Mack's play has seriously regressed. His famous low bend around the edge seems to be gone. I wonder if he's nursing an injury. Or did that Raider game really get in his head and stay there?

    Where was Ferrell today? Jets had backups to backups playing and Darnold still had all day to throw.

    Nah the ref's controlled that game . Once they took away the sack from Crosby and called a roughing the passer that no one else seen beside the zebra's I knew the game was over at that point

    The JESTS got skrewed prior to that when they had their TD taken away by the zebras.

    Just sayin'.

    Disparity in penalties was not even close. Cmon. That being said, the officiating is not why we lost.

    I watched what Ferrell was doing on a number of pass plays.
    He doesn’t have any other moves but a straight bull rush.
    He doesn’t have violent hands either.
    He needs to develop some more moves and hand techniques.

    This is right in line with what @Armyr8rfan is saying about the DTs. Think about it, the only guys that are consistently successful rushing the passer on this team are Crosby who his position coach says never does the right thing and Mayowa who was inexplicably benched earlier and only got 9 snaps yesterday. Something isn't right with our defensive line philosophy, coaching, or both.
