Burns and Davis really regressed their sophomore years. Unsure how much influence Lake had...

i dont know how much can change when the head defensive guru is still there. This is his baby, his mess. Rearranging deck chairs on the titanic.

Good point.

Team should just have kept Carnell 'explosive play' Lake.

I hope they bring in someone with a record of developing young players. Being an ex-Steeler does not demonstrate that you can develop talent.

It wasn't the scheme or playcalling or top-level choices as much as jimmie & joes + fundamentals and player development.

The HC is involved in all of that, but position coaches have a big impact in those areas.

kudos to Tomlin for throwing someone under the bus.

Begs the question why it took a former DB coach 6 years to figure out Lake wasn't cutting it....

is that too long of a timeframe?? Bogged down in game management 101 courses most likely.

I initially liked the hire but the bottom line is that the payers did not improve over time during Lake's tenure. Leave the scheming up to the DC, for this job I want someone who will help the players continually improve tacking and ball skills.

It is a step in the right direction. I want to see more steps but like B2B says, it's like that ocean liner try to make that quick turn. Just can't do it as fast as we like.

Off season forum prediction.

I put the under at 16 for how many consecutive posts any given thread will make it before a poster criticizes Tomlin.

This is funny. In one camp we have posters bitching about nepotism and always hiring former players, in another camp we have posters who want Rod Woodson and.........just a week or so ago there was a post about Darren Perry becoming available.

Personally, I think it takes a special type of ex player to be a great coach. If you're sitting on a pile of money in retirement, after a stellar career being in the spotlight, it's gotta be nearly impossible to have the drive to put your nose to the grindstone in the mostly anonymous world of NFL position coaching. Great coaches grind. If I was Rod Woodson, hall of famer. Why the hell would I want to be at the office everyday at 6 am grinding?

I made an argument a few weeks ago that perhaps we draft dumb players. Is it really all Lake's fault?

How come Lake was able to get Haden to learn the defense so quickly? How come Mike Hilton excelled as a first year player and made very few mental errors?

Coaches can't do everything. They certainly can't shed blocks or tackle for you and that was a big problem this year. I'm not so sure the busted coverages were Lake's fault or just the players being dumb.

I think Philly is a well coached team. We all agree on that after Sunday. Yet, their secondary was completely lost during the SB. Pats receivers were running free like gazelles in the wild. The Eagles actually were WORSE than even last year's Steelers during the AFC Championship game were our secondary was breaking down left and right.

At the end of the day, players have to understand scheme, study film, and know their role in the defense (ie. when to switch off and when not to).

I'd like them to trade Mike Mitchell for Jalen Ramsey, but that ain't gonna happen either.

way under as it should be, all the window dressing in the world should never take the spotlight away from whose ultimately responsible.

Tomlins direct mess. His players, his development, his coaches, his scheme, all his.

LeBeau is most likely a no...On the other hand Capers is a lifer who loved Pittsburgh

I expect Deshea Townsend is the Steelers DB coach

B2B, a huge aspect of being a good head coach are the coaching hires you make. He absolutely sucks at that.

So I guess munchak wasn't his fault or didn't hire him. Or Mann. Or the RB coach to replace Kirby Wilson. Nah, Bell didn't gain from his coaching. . .

And if it's not Lake's responsibility to ensure the DBs are not dumb and know their responsibilities bc that is out of Lake's control, then it isn't Tomlin's fault either.

Agree with this Franco but one thing; after watching NE offense and Brady (again) carve up a legit defense, along with B2Bs point that defense in the NFL might be dead (or certainly takes a far back seat to offense), when you play the GOAT, their offensive coaching and the protection that Brady gets makes it almost impossible to keep them under 20 points. Hell, the Jags almost did it IN FOXBORO, and defensively they and Miami played NE the best all season on defense.

At the end of the day, to beat NE, you pretty much have to play perfect offensively and not scared football.

I wish Fraudlin would realize that. Pederson does. Coughlin does (he didn’t call that offense in the AFCCG). Mike better wise the hell up.

I think this move is an indication of what we are trying to do- play more press coverage. Lake's playing and coaching experience are more in zone schemes and off coverage. I cannot see him adapting to the new normal. Where this team got in trouble on those long balls was the handoff from DB playing man to Safety playing essentially a zone concept. Once or twice would be happenstance but too many teams exploited that and it never got fixed. That long ball completion that sealed the game for the Jags was the dagger in Lakes career in BG IMO.

Deshea globbed onto the Giants staff unless he's going to pull a McDaniels.

Interesting take. Because that had missed assignment written all over it.
