    Honestly though, how many times can you recall in recent memory that we have been successful in bringing the blitz? Probably count on one hand. We suck at it and running screen plays. Lol

    We havent been successful blitzing, rushing four, covering in the secondary, tackling or stopping the run consistently.

    That doesnt mean you should never blitz lol.

    Clelin Ferrell and Maxx Crosby are not gonna get it done.

    Gus Bradley isn't going to improve this defense one iota. I want his resignation on my desk in the morning. Don't make me come down there.

    Bend don’t break only works if you don’t break. If you suck playing coverage on 3rd and long and suck in the redzone anyway, blitzing and trying to make plays makes too much sense, I guess.

    I'll take an improvement to like 23rd overall in points hahaha.

    He definitely isnt gonna come in and preach speed and toughness and turn our shitty players into good players.

    Morrow actually effectively blitzed. Abram looked the part too. Kwiatkoski was very effective in Chi blitzing. But when you play soft coverage and don’t practice blitzing or make it an emphasize as compared to other teams, are you surprised if/when you get lesser results?

    Thing is, Bradley has effectively schemed defenses. I just don’t get why he is so anti-blitz?

    Job #1 has to be to fix the pass rush. That will make the entire defense a lot better.

    He may turn our stupid players into effective players though.

    He’s had effective pass rushers at most of his stops so no need to blitz. I think that number would be higher if James could stay healthy though. They were blitzing him quite a bit.

    Extremely predictable vs. multiple. Can we get something in between?

    SPARQ v. Wonderlic scores?

    G’s scheme proved we didn’t have the later.

    We just have some dumb players. I get Guenther’s scheme was rocket science but they struggled with simple zone coverages. Too much grinding and not enough thinking.

    Al Davis would love Bradley's defense, namely the emphasis on the front 4 to get to the QB without blitzing. That's the key, if you can get to the QB without blitzing, its a big advantage. Raiders better get busy on getting quality DL during the off-season.

    Al would not like Bradley's use of primarily zone coverage on the back end.

    Cover 3 zone is kinda like man for the outside CBs anyway though. IIRC Nhamdi never followed WRs around with us. He just lined up outside and covered whoever went down that boundary.
