    Well, pretty simple thoughts, but, in the end, football ain't rocket science.

    STOPPING THE RUN IS JOB ONE: “Same remedy we always try to use on defense, try to stop the run and get ’em in position where we know they’re going to throw the ball, and then try to rush the passer.”

    RUN TO THE BALL: “What we always try to do and talk about it in meetings and stuff like that is make sure they’re running to the ball, everybody runs to the ball. Because we’re going to miss tackles, that happens. Hopefully we won’t miss too many tackles. If somebody misses a tackle, hopefully, we can run it down.”

    MIX UP THE PASS RUSH: “I don’t think you can do the same thing all the time, you’ve heard me say that many, many times, or they’ll catch up with you and burn your butt. We gotta make sure we switch it up and give ourselves a chance to be successful.”

    I think this season is pretty telling to see what Butler has as a coach. He is ok but his main problem is not adjusting during the game. not sure if that's Tomlins fault, butlers fault, or my fault but it should be addressed. Not saying we need to be #1 defense but our defense needs to show up and get some stops when the game really matters. (playoffs/div clinchers etc)

    THAT and he seems way too tolerant of missed tackles. No wonder they suck so bad at tackling; their coaches think it's fine.

    Run to the ball, but maintain gap integrity and keep your position so as not to fall prey to misdirection

    He didn't say that. He accepts the fact that players are human and will miss tackles. They can limit the impact of missed tackles if every player runs to the ball.

    Not good enough. If you aim low, you miss low. Aim high. Missing tackles is not acceptable. This is more Tomlin influence. "Everything is OK, don't worry."

    You are funny. I guess you would bench players that missed tackles since it's unacceptable in your world. That's a stupid stance to have.
