    I'd say Neal has improved tremendously with these DBs since ASU. I'm not a fan of our defensive play calling still, I don't like rushing 3, dropping 8 and giving up 8+ yards. If the right person becomes available I think we should pick them up. If Bud Foster doesn't get Beamers job I'd hope we'd go after him (kinda force Pellum into retirement).

    What game were you watching? Despite losing time of possession by 10 minutes, Oregon's D held star studded USC under their averages in both total yards & yards per play... they were only 6 of 15 on 3rd down conversions. If you subtract the one punt return TD off the score as on Special Teams, the Ducks D also held them 20 points under their average. They pressured Kessler all night garnering 5 sacks and 8 tackles for loss. The very green Defensive backfield has been ravaged by injury forcing numerous reshufflings, has steadily improved as the season progressed. The overall D's effectiveness has been directly related to the DB improvement.

    If they handle their business going forward, the team will enjoy a 8th straight 10 win season. You should be happily stuffing your face with crow yet you're still calling for coaches to be fired? Whatever... don't be surprised when your offseason hopes are dashed.
