A Look At the Defense (As of 3/18/21)

Yeah it's a really interesting 5-2 front.  I still anticipate a DB signing to help round out the 3-3-5 looks.  The whole 4-3 or 3-4 thing is very fluid these days.  Team's base defenses are played like 20% of the snaps.  More nickel and hybrid looks than anything else and we've got an athletic batch.


It's come down to being versatile enough the set your lineup according to your opponent.  It's about the matchups.  Unlike the past most old school coaches like Ron who thought he could impose his will by brut force today that only works occasionally.  That  mindset has worked pretty over the years and does work today if you get the right opponents.  But flexibility and speed all over the defense which is coveted in today's nfl is tough for any team to counter if you get enough of it on the roster.  Just my observations over the years.
