Once again interior pash rushing will be key for us and that means guys like Seth Payne, Gary Walker, and Robaire Smith will have to be big for us. If loosing weight gives us an extra edge to beat teams like the Colts then I'm all for it.
I've been waiting for three years to see the aggressive, pressure defense that Capers was known for in Carolina, Jacksonville, and Pittsburgh. It is really sounding like we're going to start seeing it this year.
By the way, it will be a treat for fans to get to watch such an exciting style defense play... We could be stuck watching a bunch of Cover-2 zones and other passive defenses. This is going to be a very entertaining year!!
I hope we do see more blitzes cuz i love an aggressive d. Last year I would watch the steelers and they would blitz like every time and they were aggressive. Thats how i want our d to be aggressive and just going blitz, blitz, blitz.
one thing I can see coming out of this is that a better defense will make a better offense. What I mean is that with a faster, more dominant defensive line, the OL will have better quality to practice against and will be better able to judge their improvement. Wand will have be going up against Peek, which will either make or break Wand. I'm excited.
On 610 the other day Seth Payne said the starters go against each other in training camp, but after that phase of the season is over and the schedule gets into the regular season they go against the scout team in practice each week in preparation for the Sunday game.
I knew they were intending to blitz more (I even made a poll about it). But I knew they weren't just bringing in all that speed just to sit up in a man 2 man or zone defense the whole game without bringing any pressure
lets dont forget D-Robs pass rushing ability, just ask Manning about it i'm surte he'd be glad to fill you in
When Payne was 100% in that first season, we were a tough little defense to face. Now we are going to be better.
Not to mention, we'll be scoring points on defense this year with the new agressiveness. Just think back to the year when the Oilers won those 11 in a row to finish 12-4. I was not disappointed to see our defense come out cuz it could of easily been a score waiting to happen.
Can you beleive that was 11 years ago...WOW Love him or hate him, Buddy Ryan got his defense fired up!
