The numbers will eventually fall into place if you are consistently beating your man.
Watts drawing a steady flow of double teams and he still gets his numbers.
And the other thing is qb's have looked far too comfortable against us. Even if there are plays where you are a second late, they need to feel your breath on their neck..no homo...
They need to see you whipping the o linmen in front of them. They need to feel like hurried...rushed.
They can sit back there and see watt getting doubled and feel like...'ok...the only real threat is accounted for'...now let me calmly find the open man..
You want them frantic in the pocket. You want them to rush their throws. You want them throwing from awkward positions because they're trying to hurry up and get rid of it.
I'm looking at the games...we haven't been making qb's feel like that.
They calmly sit back there and find guys.
