The Packers are awful at DE and ILB. Kenny Clark can only do so much and once you have to start modifying the defense to account for an awful dline it starts to cascade. Also, only one corner on the team is any good on a consistent basis.
The Packers have talented players but their best pass rusher is only truly elite at rushing the passer when he does it from the inside (talking about Z). I agree that having an elite corner, OLB, and safety plus another very good safety, DT, and OLB should be enough to field a decent defense but for whatever reason the parts don't seem to mesh...and they're being coaches by one of the worst DCs in recent memory.
I definitely agree the Packers lack talent on the defensive line and at inside linebacker and that was one of my main concerns entering the season. Nevertheless the unit should be capable of performing at a better level than that did against the Saints.
Fire Barry if his defense surrenders more than 17 points this next game.
And tell the next DC we demand a 2000 Baltimore Ravens level defense here or his *** is going to get kicked outta here too.
I wasn't in favor of hiring Barry either but I'm convinced the Packers will hold on to him for at least this season. The unit definitely doesn't have the talent to perform at the same level as the 2000 Ravens no matter the coordinator.
