Re: Wade Phillips Blitz Packages
there will be tons of 6 man blitzes, but it's not going to be from adding another OLB to the play - he'd use instead a safety or corner in such a case. wade has a very simple and very effective defense, and just like last year it's going to be our standard 5 man front with cushing coming inside on base and run downs. on passing downs we'll again spend our time in nickel (or dime depending on james' ability to stay in on passing downs) with a 4 man front and lots of looks from the ILB's and safeties.
wade can get plenty creative, but it's usually much more subtle than crashing his OLB's inside (outside of a few stunts to keep teams honest).
