Why can't Brandon Beane get the defense right?


Recommended Posts

Honestly, it's kind of shocking how much worse his defensive acquisitions have been compared to Sean. 

 

Who are our best defenders currently on the roster? 

 

Poyer

Hyde

Tre

Milano

Jerry

 

Do you notice something?  4 of those players were acquired by McD without the McBeane.  Jerry was obviously already here.

 

Compare it to the list of hacks that Beane has acquired. I'd type out all the bums and disappointments but it'd take too long.

 

All I know is if you eliminate the 2017 fellas, our defense would be the worst in the NFL.  If you eliminate Beane's JAG brigade, eh, we'd be okay.

 

Is it time for McD to make the picks again? Beane got the QB, let's thank him for his service and let's put the King of William and Mary back in the Kirk chair.

14 more days.

Given how close Beane and McDermott work, I'm not sure any defensive players would be recruited by Beane without the seal of approval from McDermott. 

What happened did your ST's thread not do so well?

 

Lets see what happens this year. The defense stepped up when it needed in the second half and playoffs for the most part.

 

I think the first half of the year was some pains with no offseason.

 

It became one of the best second half defenses in the league.

This is a ridiculous assertion.  We've had a top defense until last year when some injuries and opt-outs hurt a lot more than any draft or FA misses did.

 

And frankly, I'm much happier that they have a top offense and a middling defense vs having a top defense and a middling offense

 

It's a much stronger and sustainable brand of football.  

 

Would you prefer that we bring another GM in to make these decisions???  Again - ridiculous

While I candidly have not seen the data on this, so don't know if it's effecting things or not, it should also be mentioned along with the defense's "regression", that that tends to happen when your offense puts up more points and plays at a faster pace. I believe we were one of the fastest paced teams last season and we were certainly one of the highest scoring offenses, so purely from a "time on field" standpoint, our defense was going to be worse... Whether that's still true prorated for pace of play and other factors, I'm not sure.

 

It's also extremely silly to pretend like Beane is the only one providing input on these selections. They're absolutely collaborating on making these decisions. Furthermore, the more recently drafted guys have also suffered injuries or (though I'm loathe to defend him), like Oliver, forced into bad roles because of other injuries... I think it's pretty likely the D looks better this year.

Just wish in 14 days a bunch of posters could be replaced by a new draft of posters also - rather than the same tired bunch of people starting threads about crap.

 

 

Yea but at least we know this guy and his schtick.

Every team had no offseason last year. It was a global pandemic, not just in Erie County.

Our per drive averages were mediocre.

The focus has been on the offense since Beane has been here. Very little has been done on the defense apart from bringing in depth. Beane did bring in some guys on the dline last year with mixed results, but that's basically all.

 

Dane Jackson, a 7th rounder, looks to be a steal. I think AJ Epenesa could be good.

 

Who exactly are you so disappointed in on the defense?
