C- trolling right there. You should be ashamed to have "TheChronic" in your username with sad attempts like that.

How about you go find some more videos and times for me to look at, so I can further expose your sad brand of idiocy.

CALF ROPING is NOT Tackling.

The problem with Ruud is not only with his difficulty disengaging blockers, but it is also how he engages blockers.  If Ruud engages a full back five yards beyond the line of the scrimmage how is the WILL (Geno Hayes) supposed to flow to the ball carrier that is following the full back to clean up if Ruud is obstructing him? Furthermore that is a win for the offense if the full back can block out a mike and slow down the will from tackling the ball carrier before gaining decent yardage.

Just because Ruud is a Tampa 2 mike does not excuse him from some basic fundamentals of playing mike in a 4-3 defense. 

1. Gap integrity is important, but this scheme requires players to attack gaps aggressively at the line of scrimmage.  Ruud isn't attacking his gap(s) which is why blockers are engaging him five yards down field which causes problems for his teammates

2. A mike LB has to at least win 50% of the engagements against a full back.

3. Even if Ruud is blocked, he needs to be able to shed the blocker, and try to make a play on the ball carrier.

In summary coaches are probably pleased with Ruud in defending the pipe, and zone coverage, but he simply doesn't understand positioning when it comes to run defense.

Ruud is not an impact player which is why Tanard is regarded far more highly. �This is also why Tanard is still starting, and Sabby isn't (Sabby missed more tackles than Tanard which is hard to believe). �

Depends what you mean by impact player. Jackson makes more splash plays...but i'm not so sure that Ruud's overall solid play isn't worth more in the long run at this point. I do think Jackson can be a top FS and better at his position than Ruud is...but if last season is any indication, he's not there yet.

It's also understandable that Sabby gets benched and Tanard doesn't. Tanard is better against the pass. He also has to be like 190 lbs...and we had him up at the line Lynch-style at times. The sad thing was, he was more effective up there than the 220 lb Sabby. We shouldn't expect him to be able to take on RB's in the hole consistently....so it's no surprise that he missed a bunch of tackles. It's similar to those that think we should move Ronde to safety....you REALLY want little 180 lb Ronde hitting RB's head-on like that? I don't think so.

If you haven't read the Steve White article mentioned...it also addresses some parts of your last post. I agree that Ruud isn't an ideal MLB....if he were the same speed, 15 lbs heavier, and hit like Ray Lewis I think we'd all prefer that. But he's one of the few guys on the D that is actually where he's supposed to be(AKA doing his job), so I consider him far from our biggest problem.

just watched chronics video.....HOW COULD ANYONE TRY TO EXCUSE THE PLAY AT 2:37!!!...not only did he stay 8 yards in front of the line of scrimmage like usual...but he got blasted, and if not for that, we potentially could've been in the playoffs that season.

Did you miss their center man-handling our 3-tech and NOBODY blocking our NT....instead having the guards take out Ruud and the SLB? You really expect Ruud to be able to run through a guard?

If ruud went downhill and took on the gaurd near the line of scrimmage, instead of engaging the gaurd 8 yards behind it, than it would've been an entirely different outcome.

I'm surprised you really think the 240 lb Ruud would run into the 300+ lb LG, be able to hold the gap, and make the tackle.

It's not that Rude got blocked-- it's the fact that he got TOTALLY OWNED FOR ABOUT 10 YARDS!!!

He got BLASTED OUT OF THE PLAY!!!!!

The Lineman ROAD GRADED his ass!!!!!!

He could have run like a little schoolgirl and looked better than he did on that play-- he's looked like a GOD DAMM BLOCKING SLED!  PWNED.

no...not make the tackle....fill the gap, take on the gaurd...and make the running back hesitate and have to change direction....instead of being able to run straight through to the daylight

The point is.....you're blaming Ruud for the bad play, when the Raiders obviously felt they needed to block him and the SLB with their guards INSTEAD of using those guys on our D-line. Because of that, the SDE, NT, and 3-tech ALL had a great shot at making a stop for a short loss. None of them made the play...yet you want to say that Ruud made a bad play. Ruud was out of the play because a GUARD was in the 2nd level of the field without even bothering with one of our DT's.

What do you think people mean when they say that having better DT's will help the LB's? It keeps the blockers from going to the 2nd level. Then obviously having guys that can hold their own gap helps the LB's make the play as well.

We all KNOW that Ruud isn't the toughest, most physical MLB. That does not mean he sucks. MOST MLB's can't take on offensive linemen and hold the gap....hell OUR D-LINE can't even take on offensive lineman(lets hope McCoy, Miller, and Price can).

Watch the play with 2 minutes left in the 1st quarter of the Chiefs game. It's the nickle package and Ronde Barber lined up at SAM, Geno at WILL. Ronde DOES attack the LOS and slices through untouched and gets into the backfield to tackle Tomas Jones. Same exact play Geno takes on a 300+ lb. guard in his gap and sheds the block to make a dynamic play on Jones for the assist, and you can see Ruud in the background shuffling his feet. He does not attack his gap, and instead waits for the center to block him out of the play. Ruud was just WAITING 5 yards behind the LOS for the C to block him out of the play.....and he did.....again.

Ruud looks horrible. I can't wait till he is gone.

Just because the ball fell in the shopping cart does not excuse the issue at hand. Run Defense and playing your gap aggressively.
