I agree and that’s part of the issue and if I’m not mistaken, he struggled late in games with leads in Baltimore. He’s a great DC. I’m a fan. We have a great D. But Rivers cannot be allowed to pick you apart with no pressure or innovation otherwise the Ekeler TD happens

That was some shitty prevent defense on that drive. Pees deserves criticism for that one.

The defense is excellent. But Pees went way too conservative leading to the long TD. You never cover a RB like Ekeler on a route with Woodyard. 
 

Saying the defense had a bad/not great day doesn’t mean they are bad. My point was we went prevent and Whisenhunt torched us. 

 

Brown is the cover LB and was out. Pees needed his cover guys for Allen, William's, and Henry. Rivers exploited the matchup.

I think the defense is slightly overrated.  However, in today's NFL where it's set up for offenses to score at will and the most points they've given up is 20 points, including games against high octane QBs such as Matt Ryan, the defense is doing its job.

This is correct. But I still contend he played too loose. No way should they have driven that quickly. We can agree to disagree on this while agreeing that we have a great D overall.

Is Succop progressing to the point, where is he healthy after week 8?  I get the feeling might cost us a game (which we can't afford to lose) with a crucial miss.

This was Simmons first freaking game...     after major knee surgery.

 

OMG, this kid is a freak. That goal-line play reminded me of Haynesworth. And, he showed up every time he was in the game.

 

I was remembering Suh's last College Bowl game where he had like 3.5 sacks and several TFLs...Simmons was looking like that at times today...
