The 46 Defense.....

I think it prudent to make your base defensive package effective and then work on the nuances.  First thought is to get Nak and Norman to give less than a 20 or 30 yard cushion.  After that lets work on the wrinkles.

<“I’ve seen what a feeding frenzy looks like,” Gettleman has said.  “We had a game against Philadelphia a few years back where we had 12 sacks, and we had a game against Chicago where we sacked Cutler 10 times.  I really believe in it.  Can it mask issues in the secondary?  Of course it does.”>

 

I think Dave has Chico's ear and I think you can expect a lot of pressure regardless of scheme.

OK.  Three things. 

 

Number one - I enjoyed the video, it really explained a lot.  Pie for you.

Number two - The things it explained made me want to avoid it at almost all costs (too much risk).

Number three - I couldn't help but notice that your avatar in the #5 jersey looks similar to the guy doing the video.

I kind of think that if the 46 was a viable defense, someone would have used it in the last 25 years...

I think it would be cool to mix it in in certain games for sure but I don't think it's something that would be effective enough to be your base defense in today's game.

It is used by the Jets under Ryan and by Cleveland when Rob Ryan was there. If you said used by anyone not named Ryan in the last 25 years you might have a point. Lol.

I am of the belief that the 46 is still in Rivera's head. It is the driving force behind his propensity to love his Safeties. Quicker than LBs, and tougher than CBs. Best case, they can both cover and tackle.

I truly believe he would love to run a 4DL-2LB,2CB, and 3S package. Get pressure with you front 4 and you can attack from anywhere. Keep your 2CB on the 2WR, and you use the other 5 guys to confuse and aggravate the O. That said. I am interested to see how many Safeties we keep this year. For me it will be a barometer on how close I am to guessing the Defense Rivera would like to run.

It is damn near impossible to stop those dinky dunky fugging Offenses. But one sure fire way to slow it down is to be able to apply pressure with just your front 4, and confuse the QB with your other 7. We have the potential to apply pressure. The jury is still out on how Rivera will use that back 7.

And just to keep this tangent going. Most teams don't have the personnel to run 4 and 5 WR sets effectively. The talent falls off after the first 2 or 3. If you can use your Safeties to help cover, you can use them in other ways as well. Different cover schemes. Blitz from anywhere. Don't Blitz. Anything you can do to confuse the O is a help.

Ah hellz, I think I have confused myself. More Safeties good. More CBs bad.
