At least get a defense that can disrupt the pocket and force throws that their qb isn't comfortable with. I want to see double the amount of sacks and qb hurries and a solid 3rd down defense that gets off the field more often. I want more 3 and outs from the defense and or less than 5 or 6 play series. Can't expect Carr to get us 27 or more points every game.

Yeah I don’t know man. I still see receivers routinely making seriously contested catches, defenders all over them, fighting for the ball, getting popped pretty hard. I mean, you can’t hold on and mug them anymore like back in the ‘70s. But still, these receivers hardly ever have what I would call an easy catch.

But no doubt pass rush is key. Can’t give a QB time. If the QB isn’t nervous, or preferably scared, you’re fucked.

A lot of that is attitude on the defensive side of the ball. Haven't seen that since the early 2000's and before that the Howie Long days. This has been a fake phoney franchise marketing on successes from thirty five to forty years ago. That whole Autumn is the wind theme, Stabler, Matuszak, Sistrunk, Blanda etc. C'mon now...what a fuckin joke. That fuckin stinkin jew motherfucker really dumping this garbage on fans that weren't even born yet and their parents were in grade school. Fuckin god damn yid will do anything for a nickel to try to sell you something.

Thought you guys might like to know, I dug deeper into Burfict's player grades on PFF. Last year was a very down year for the guy, with a PFF score in the 40s. He only played in 7 games. And keep in mind last season was his first year without Guenther Cunningham, the guy who was there since Burfict was drafted. The guy who's his DC once again in OAK.

Looking back over the 3 years prior to last season, he AVERAGED a PFF score of around 77 or 78. A 76 in 2015, 83 in 2016 and 73 in 2017.

If he had a 77 this past season, it would have put him in the top 12 non-edge rushing LBs in the league.

So the guy has played at a high level very recently and over a long time period - a MUCH higher level than ANY of our other LBs.

He is instantly BY FAR our best linebacker, and back together with Guenther. Looks like our MLB problem is solved, for now.

We'll see. It's not like teams were lining up bidding for his services. He is an upgrade as our linebacking corp been shit for many years. Have to have a formidable defense for once. How many times has our defense won games for us in the last ten years where they controlled the opponents offense throughout the game. Can count that on one hand or two fingers.

Gruden must have a lil man chubby for this guy and Nathan Peterman. Carr, Peterman And Landry in a hot tub with Gruden late at night. That would be a sight to behold.

My first thought was he's bringing in a QB who has familiarity with AB.

Glennon will probably be Carr's back up with Landry Jones on practice squad and Petermen cut.

Pretty serious new look to our LB corps with both Burfict and Brandon Marshall, both on 1-yr deals.

not the best way to handle such a fucked-up unit.
