Re: The People versus Kubiak and Smith - 2nd Degree Murder of Defense
Well I think it falls on the defensive staff, but there is something else that happened. The discovery of jokers. In any front, especialy 4 man, u need jokers. Jokers are lbs who can rush the passer enough that they're a threat when zone ressuring qbs. I remember reading a lot of posts about why the texans don't do what the giants or philly do as far as pressure. Well they were trying, but they didn't have lbs who could be pass ruushers tht wouulallowa linemaan to drop. Diles was having a good yr ackling, but that's not his thing. Bentley, who can really run and thompson, who was a 3-4 rush lb and Adibi can do that. So now the dc can zone blitz because those 3 can be sent and beat a side of a lineman and allow a lineman to drop to the hot read of the qb. Eventhough its a blitz, its only a 5 man blitz with 1 dl dropping out. Also D-Rob coming back and wilsn being there tightens windows for the qb.
So if u want to bblamme the dc for not using his personell better, then that's cool. Most head coachhes don't tell the coordinattors whaat to do when that's not the side they're know for. Now he may sit in on gameplan days and ask what the attack is, but he's notgoing to call plays or anything.
Be a student of the game, not a fan.
