Most fans know a lot more about offensive plays than defensive ones

Pretty easy to call out OC when a play doesn't work. On defense, most of us don't know what was called so it usually gets blamed on a player.

There's a feeling of "even I could call a better play" on offense, so Anae gets the bullseye on his back. The best most of us can do on defense is "why the hell was that guy so open?" Replay runs and we blame a DB for blowing coverage. Howell's off the hook.

It's a legit question. The defense is sucking pretty bad right now and if the players aren't making plays, it's Howell's job to fix it.
