Directing this response to you and TK, agree only because we do not have a good Nose. Again Phillips adjusts his defense to players he has. Yes, IF we draft Short, he will continue to play in manner we are accustomed to seeing a NT play. If we get Sy, Brandon Williams or Hankins expect to see a different & I think better scheme. Can you imagine what Smith and Watts could do if our Nose could actually tie up two to three blockers?
It would be like saying Kubiac would use exact same offense scheme if he had a QB who could scramble and had a Pastorini arm. He hasn't had one here so how do we know what he would do. We can only project.
