How Much Does The Defense Change Under Coach Wilks?

Recommended Posts

I would like to think we get better. McDerp was overrated and loved to keep teams in the game with prevent defense when we had the lead.

Captain Munnerlyn did an interview on Sirius/XM last week and they asked him this question. He said he didn't expect there to be much difference; but he did say that Wilks does like blitzing the nickel corner, something Munnerlyn was obviously excited about.

Hopefully, more man to man!

I say that understanding that Rivera and McD were a bit handicapped last year. Had to protect their young secondary and we're dealing with injuries. Couldn't leave those rookies on an island early on

I'll be happy if it means fewer LB A-gap blitzes. IMHO, when it doesn't work it leaves us wide open to attack

Secondary is going play similar to Broncos defense with the CBs playing more man. 

Linebackers should utilized more in coverage instead of blitz. 

DL stopping the run 1st, getting to the QB 2nd. 


All this will equate to an elite defense with a lot of turnovers. 

Mix of Seattle / Broncos defense

I'd like to see more of a 4-2-5 look and utilize Shaq more. With our two rangy corners and now a nickel that is one of the best in the slot, as well as bringing pressure, I think we can disguise a lot of our looks.  With LBs like Luke, TD, and Shaq, I think we can let Thompson be our wildcard rover.  God forbid we land Adams/Hooker/Melinfonwu in the draft.... game over. 

I'd like to see Wilks better utilize our strengths, not bend as much and force offenses to make mistakes, rather than waiting on them to come to us. We have the personnel, speed and athleticism to dictate more.... I feel like McD didn't maximize our potential.

Just going by players skill set and coaches interview. 

 

One reason Josh Norman was let go  was due to lack of top end speed. The reason we drafted Bradberry early on that most expected was not only instincts but the size to go with speed. 

More man means Safety will be able to roam more free.

I just pray to see less and less of the cushion we give teams in zone.  Let our DBs play up more this year...enough giving teams a 7-8 yard pass all day long.

Has nothing to do with change from McDermott to Wilks?

Off topic a bit, but man, this defense is stacked with really good players even before we add anything in the draft.

It would be nice to get Adams or Thomas, but otherwise, I wouldn't care if the only thing we added on defense was a developmental DE. 

It's time to stack the offense accordingly.

Imagine utilizing a cover 1 look, with the defense moving all around pre-snap to disguise coverage. (This is not a 3-4, just designed to show creative scheme.

                 Coleman                                    

                                   Thompson

Bradberry                                        Worley

        Addison   Kuechly  Davis  Peppers

                   Butler    Star    K.K.

 

all QBs would be worried about Addison and Peppers off the edge, Luke and TD with their double A gap look, and Shaq as your box safety.
