Default Defense making adjustments

This looks promising. Hopefully we see a defense this week we're used to seeing.

no matter what adjustments they make, our defense is not going to be as good as it has been in the past 3-4 years.

People need to understand that JD Clowney is a game changer. He changes the offensive playbook entirely. We don't have that anymore, and from the looks of English in the A&M game...... we wont come close to a decent tackler much less a pass rusher. Bottom line is Deke needs to prove himself as a coach. We had a huge drop off with his line last year, yea we lost some guys, but we still had a stout NFL ready dline. Deke has been at best mediocre in his units production. I expect a huge day for the d line in the ECU game. They do run a quick spread, so if we cover like we did during the A&M game, we WILL LOSE THIS GAME.

that being said, hype and bullshit taking plays off aside, Clowney made our entire team that much harder to play.

This is not a Clowney effect, the team came out flat as hell and lacking every fundamental you can think of. The coaches AND players failed to prepare, they wont do that again.

I agree. He can clearly recruit...but can he coach.
A good coach (Lawing) can make 3-star guys look good with technique, effort and playing smart....a good recruiter can bring in good players and do nothing with them.

I haven't been impressed so far with the lack of fundamentals and technique the line has shown since Adams has arrived (no hand fightin, no swims, spins...just bull rushing guys).

Agreed.
The Clowney loss hurt, but he did not cover up all the mistakes we saw.
Some of hte worst open field tackling I have seen around the board.

Coaches failed to put our players in situations they could succeed, and our players performance reflected that...they weren't ready to play, and our coaches on defense apparently took the whole summer off.

Hope they actualy did their job in preparing for ECU this week.

We have the talent...but they need to be coached up...and if these defensive coaches can't do that, we need to find some that can coach them up.

It's not just the loss of Clowney. We had 3 guys off the DLine last year that are on NFL Teams as we speak.

Clowney--Houston
Quarles--made the 53 man roster for New England
Sutton--practice squad Washington

Granted, it doesn't have to be as good as those if our Offense comes together the way it should.

Adjust back to the D of 2011 with Allen, Holloman, Gilmore, Ingram, Taylor, Clowney, Robertson, Swearinger, with Hampton and Quarrels as backups... Man that was a nasty defense.

I think we had the wrong personnel grouping when running the 3-4. We ran it with 2 DEs and a NT. A&M had no trouble at all blocking this lineup and even had no trouble picking up the blitz, because they did not have to double team anybody. They handled all our guys with one on one blocking. If we ran that defense the way it is supposed to be run with a big NT and 2 big DTs they would have a much better chance of tying up the Oline making the blitz more effectice. It would also be a better run defense in the middle.

Did Deke take over coaching duties from Lawing this year?

Must've missed that...

Well he had three guys to go on to play in the NFL who were all upperclassmen. Lawing had the work done for him at that point.
