While yes, Donatell didn't scheme it well enough to disguise the deficiencies in talent (which Zimmer was much better at), it wasn't all his fault. The talent was far from superior. In reality when we go back and look at it, who had two practice squad players, a 32 year old CB as some of our highest graded players on defense. Cam Bynum who did play his way in, but we do have a safety we took in the 1st round injured. Our LB group all year never showed up besides on the tackle log. Anytime anything seemed to be in space they were beat. The defense has a whole lot of improvement to do but Ed’s defense did nothing to hide really any of our weaknesses. I’m not saying we have a top 20 defense, but I would say we could have been better than 31st. 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
