My excitement doesn't just go towards Teddy B. We mentioned this on the other thread. I think a thread just for defense is appropriate.
The fact that we will be seeing a brand new defense has me so freaking excited. I know we've all said this before, but I would come in to work Monday with just bloody eyes because I tried to hold in my anger watching any accurate QB carve up that pathetic style they called a defense.
I just keep hearing things like hybrid, Safety rotation, blitzing, aggressive, fresh.
Not this; your Right DE has to get 15 sacks. Your CBs sit on a bubble and your MLB has to be able to chase the TE straight down the middle of the field. The rest of you, just do whatever. That seemed to be all it took to shape up that tampa two. And we ran that crap for what. 6-7 straight years?
Anyone have thoughts on this. The reason I ask, I don't know much about 3-4. I think Zimmer has these formations as part of his playbooks. Like would Linval Joseph play that middle. Would Shariff play a DE in 3-4. Would Robison stand up? Or have you heard of any other formations 3-3-5.
