You're only looking at being aggressive in terms of how many people he sends after the qb...i consider playing press man coverage to be aggressive...& when you consider that we predominantly play press man...its ultra aggressive imo..i don't think any other team plays man as much as we do.
I'll end the conversation here Mr Tex. I have not said anything about what my idea of aggressive defense is so you're making stuff up.
As far as rushing 3 instead of 4, well whatever.
