    Nice read.

    The key to Wade's defense: Simplicity and Adaptability................and picking a group of players without Temerity!

    This defense kinda reminds me of the 1993 Oilers that won 12 games...yes, Buddy Ryan and the punch.

    In the NFL you're doing well when others start copying what you're doing...

    Rep coming your way. Somone once said imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. The only thing you worry about is if the exceptional defense becomes the common defense. The offense will then tend to develop more effective ways of combating........sort of when the 3-4 was first installed. But an innovative DC will show his worth then even more.

    Good reads thanks to both Alpha and Pec0s. MSR.

    Can't wait to see how the new guy - Mercilus - fits in to the rotation; and what Wade will do with him.
