Re: Connor Barwin?
As far as the 4-man front is concerned, there's not really any change, except that we went to it straight off the bat in the fourth quarter against the Broncos.
We see the 4-man front (including fronts with an edge guy taking his hand off the dirt) when the Texans go to a nickle or a dime package.
The occasions may include:
- When the offense is in a 3-WR set.
- On second and very long.
- On third or fourth and long.
- In prevent defense or soft defense at the end of the half or in the fourth quarter.
- When we show a 46 look, but drop back into a regular 4-man front.
Basically, we anticipate a pass.
