Where's the D?

Another week goes by and still another game that the Bills defense cannot cause pressure on the opposing QB.  Our D-Line/LB's does a fine job stopping the run...we know this already; buy why can't we pressure the QB?  We've blitzed in previous games to cause pressure and it's turned out relatively good for us in either a sack, pressure, and even forced fumbles!

I was very disappointed in Fewell's approach to this week's game in terms of pressuring the Dolphins.  He only dialed up about 2 blitzes and Scott was able to get a sack on one of those.  If that's what it takes to pressure the QB don't you think that is something we should do more often?  2 of our 3 LB's are phenominal and are able to put pressure on the QB if they're allowed (excluding Ellison because he's a bum!)

McGee...WTF?  Why was he even allowed to give up 160 some yards to Ginn Jr?  Why wasn't he taken out earlier in the game when it was obvious he was having coverage issues?  I've noticed it for a very long time that he gives up too much of a cushion making it easy for WR's to run hooks and sprint screens.  His play today was very questionable.  His heart/mind was in the right place but swallow your pride and let the coaches put someone in who can play 100%.

Those were the 2 major issues I had with todays game.  This was supposed to a way to ease into our divisional games, instead we got embarrassed by a mediocre Dolphins team.  We've always had Pennington's number but for some reason we couldn't pressure him to save our lives.  If this is the way our Defensive Coordinator is going to continue to put together gameplans then this promising season is going to come in for a crash landing!

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
