    Our D made Phillip Rivers look like a pro bowler. Sure they didn't get any breaks by our offence, but they still looked horrible, even in the first quarter.

    If Buffalo go 8 - 8 or close to relying on their defense, then maybe so.

    But until then one game proves nothing.

    JP Losman didn't even have 100 yds passing did he? that is what I call relying on the Defense.

    One game?

    The 1981 49ers won a super bowl starting an entire defensive backfield of rookies.
    Ronnie lott and eric wright at corner, carlton williamson and dwight hicks at safety.

    It doesn't take 10 years of seasoning to tackle someone.

    Gotta agree with Rolltide on this one.

    D struggles are not related to the talent on D.

    Schwartz is incapable of adapting "his" schemes to the players on the team.

    I agree too. It's the schemes and packages. You could have great defensive players but if you put them in the wrong scheme, they will be non-effective.

    Look, Buffalo has a better running game and a better qb than we do. Our d played good enough to win early. They just can't do it all. I mean 15 yds. in the first half?

    I am sure Buffalo had more offensive help today than that.
