Re: New insite into Smith's Defense
I think all this "what kind of defense do we run" stuff is just a bunch of blah-blah-blah for bored fans in the offseason.
It's a freak'n 4-3, period.
No, it's not a Tampa 2, which is just always playing your safeties deep. It's not a big deal, it's nothing special...... it's really pretty vanilla.
We want to generate pressure with our front four..... we want both safeties to play the run as well as the pass(i.e. no true FS, & no true SS, regardless what the depth chart says, they're safeties).
Our corners line up to their side, and they're generally in press coverage....
I think we're overthinking this whole defense thing. Second guessing our coaches and what not.
do you think the guys in New York are wondering what kind of defense they're running?? I could be wrong, but I don't think their looking for any kind of description other than 4-3.
sure, they know they're going to get after the QB, with relentless pressure. But who isn't trying to do that?? can you call that your identity??
We're a bend but don't break defense.
It's a freak'n 4-3, why do we need to define it further than that??
