What was wrong with our defense in the regular season?



Was it weak line play? Injuries? Youth? The loss of Cooper?

I was underwhelmed with our defense. We gave up 7 YPC to Bama. Ole Miss torched us. State had a great day through the air.

Our linebackers were probably the strength of this defense.

Loston was our best safety. I learned that Eric Reid is a SS playing FS. Weak in coverage.

I thought they were fine pre-Bama. I just feel like post-bama, the team has been a little deflated. That seems like a pretty simple analysis, but it just may be the issue.

The team is a little fatigued but it's mainly scheme. We simply cannot give 15 yrd cushions to the WRs

OK, if true, that is a result of bad coaching. The DL disgruntled or what?

I doubt that rumor. I think the DL and secondary was vastly over-rated especially the DE's.

Mostly youth. The jalens and Loston will be awesome next year. I think it was our pass d that was the problem

Nah. They just quit playing as hard. Probably trying to stay healthy for the draft. Their biggest problem was being over-aggressive an missing tackles

I would imagine that the Bama game was a huge let down for a lot of the guys on the team in light of the MNC game. They were out for vengeance and almost got it...came up just a little short. Having already lost to Florida and a razor thin margin of error - they probably deduced that they were out of the National Title hunt...and you know, kind of went into cruise control.
