That explains why we're a bend-but-don't-break defense.
This is the NFL - braun, brains, athletic ability and reacting on the fly are key attributes and competencies needed in order to play this game on defense.

Maybe you would rather watch the game from your spine melter 3000 and get your football voyeurism on via this style of play



BTW, I am not a huge fan of Smith and my statements are more about the developing personnel. They can be exclusive of one another.
