Pass defense seems to be going backwards. All the talk leading up to the game was that the Titans were weak at WR and Tannehill wasn’t quite 100%, and yet we couldn’t have made things any easier for him. Soft second half play by the secondary is a weekly thing and won’t keep us in games when we are always playing from behind.…The defensive side particularly frustrates me because we've spent a lot of draft capital there. I don't think the players are as bad as they play. Which is down to coaching/scheme. Biggest beef for me: they play pretty well on first and second down. Then we're in a 3rd and 6 . . . and the defense gives a 7 yard cushion. We're in 3rd and 9 . . . and the defense gives a 10 yard cushion. We're in 3rd and 12 . . . and the defense gives a 13 yard cushion. Over and over, every single game. At least it looks that way to me...
Preston has been solid all year, and I’ve been very impressed with Enagbare. I think we found a pretty good player in him. Run and pass, sets and edge and can push the pocket.Gary wasn’t even out there and Preston was very solid and clutch at big moments. Enagabare continues to show he was a steal as well.
The consistent thing I saw all night was Henry getting 4 when he needed 2...getting 6 when he needed 5. Ripping off 9 yard runs on first down. Yeah he was 28 rush for 87 yards, but the rest of what he did last night means the run D was a dud.What was score at half?
This has been going on the entire year, not only this contest. Much of the time you've got to quit forcing it downfield (especially in a game that's cold and windy) and take what's given to you. That's what TN did all day they took what we gave them. In particular the first half was ultra Vanilla, we did open the playbook a little coming out half 2 and it was noticeable for awhileThe Packers faced five third down and short situations vs. the Titans and converted four of them (two running and two throwing the ball). Yet all you focus on is the one they didn't convert. It wasn't the reason the team ended up losing the game by any means though.
I was going to vent, but I kept the list reasonableOther than that, how was the play Mrs. Lincoln?
As I mentioned in another post, at this point wins don't mean a whole lot to me. I'd actually prefer they use the next 6 games to evaluate all the players on the current roster, that they feel will be there in 2023. That means let Love get a fair amount of work in. Pretty much go down the roster and start subbing next years roster in and see how they play. This will serve 2 main purposes. First, it gives those players a lot of reps and experiences that they might not otherwise see. Second, it gives Gute and his staff more information as to what to do in the offseason.We are looking at bottom of the division here. Folks we won't beat the Eagles in Philly, then what? We're going to beat all the teams in the division or go .500? We stink right now and let one of the worst offenses (statistically) just light us up in passing. I want to believe that we can beat the Lions, and Queens at home, but the GBP are looking bad, to very bad. Fixing a thing here and a thing there will not fix this team. We may need a giant overhaul at this point.
What was embarrassing was that long shot down the sideline by Tannehill. It was a bad throw and if someone is close to the receiver it is incomplete. But no one near him.Pass defense seems to be going backwards.

So much for elite. I would settle for just solid at this point. Even solid defenses don’t have to pick their poison.
Tannehippie had probably his best game this season. He was remarkably accurate on a bunch of down and outs at the sideline. On the flip side Rodger was missing some throws he usually makes. Yeah, so you add in 3 extra catches beyond normal for Tannehill and 3 less catches for Rodgers and it really has an effect on thingsGot to give a lot of credit to Tannehill. He was very accurate with his passing.
