No, this is about getting to the QB, making sure Tom Terrific doesn't sit back there & play his game. With the season Watt & Antonio had in 2012, there's no excuse for not getting to the QB more often.
but if that true lb wasn't there (Andre Brown), you don't reach for him...you grab the next best thing..
Furthermore, Thomas Brady is 1 of the best qb's against the blitz and one of the best qbs in terms of working the pocket. You can't just sit back & blitz all game (didn't work out too well for us last year) and you can't sit back in coverage alone b/c he'll really kill you. It's gotta be some combo of both. I think the versatility both these guys bring will allow us to be much more flexible than we've ever been since wade arrived here.
