Fackrell made some key plays. In fact, the defense got the stops when they needed them with Fackrell in the game, not Matthews. 

Matthews runs himself out of every pass play trying to get the quick and easy sack.  He plays like it's all he cares about.  If it looks like he's not getting the sack, he half-asses it.  Not much help in the run game, either.

Fackrell actually looked better than 52 by comparison.

I just got through a good part of the rewind 

If you think 52 or Fackrell made a real impact JFC we set the bar pretty ****ing low 

Our pass rushers suck.  Our run defense was worse. And I’m the drunk? 

Goddamn I should drink more and maybe this schit defense will look mediocre 

The defense sucked ass until the end.  On those stops at the end, Fackrell made a couple plays.  Pretty much the only point made. 

Matthews had a sack at the end, after being a nonfactor the entire game.

I'm not risking MVS or ESB on kick-offs. I'd risk Moore, as long as I was sure he could hang onto the ball. MVS and now ESB have shown that with other guys out they can carry the load. Given this teeter-totter of a team, I don't want to be caught short on WRs.

Seriously, we can’t risk Scantling on ST now? He’s already the best gunner on the team. He should be returning kickoffs. Hell they had Cobb returning punts and that’s more dangerous than kickoffs are these days. 

Some time this year I will get my wish. He will be returning kicks and Alexander will be returning punts. If we want something besides mediocre ST play.

ST are a grease fire. If Rodgers happens to carry this team to the playoffs Zook has the ability to make everyone forget about Seattle in 14. 

Never thought the bottom might be worse than Slocum. But Mike might have found him. And kept him. 

It's another example of Mike's loyalty to a fault.   I don't know a single person who was happy about hiring Zook.    If I recall correctly, he was on the staff in some role already at the time of hiring.

He was the Asst. Special Teams coach. Do NFL HC's normally poll fans or the media IRT coaching staff changes? 

Point being we all knew it was horrible hire at the time.   It's another example of being loyal to a fault or incompetent in evaluating coaches.
