That was a greta read smart people that know football would agree with Steve and the one who don;t will continue to think they are the mastermind out there. when i played ball in high school we had two of the smallest DT known to man. both was about 190-200lbs and when i got to college we had undersized DT's also and reacted havoc every game because they were to small to be blocked now i know in the NFL its a diffrence but what he is saying is speed and quickness kills and if you have a little smaller DT but is faster and quicker then it can work and we know that.

Exactly my point. If we improve on our run and overall D over the next six games, it was the scheme and White was right.

Are we going back to the scheme that gave up 299 rush yards vs. CAR and 192 rush yards vs. OAK in 2 of the last 4 games last season?



This will make Sunday all the more interesting.

So you're setting it up to where if the rush defense doesn't give up 170+ yards, then it's the scheme and if they do, it's the players.  One problem with that is the games this season where the rush defense didn't allow 170+ rushing yards:

DAL - 118
WASH - 129
PHI - 76
NE - 107

It get's a little hairy when trying to blame the scheme, unless the team is giving up 170+ consistently.  I would say if the new scheme sets a new low in rushing yards allowed, then the players are off of the hook - otherwise the players have to make plays regardless of the scheme.

So, before the game happens, let me know of your standards to which the scheme will be blamed.

It is pretty apparent the adoption went through and Steve is now kin to UFOJOE Biggs.  Now quit questioning Steve's opinions - bc it is clear he is right  ;)

How did that D fare for most of the season vs, the run? It remains to be seen which D we will get.

I just want to see "noticeable improvement." And yes, that's going to be hard to judge. I want to consistent improvement and half hope for next year. I'm not worried about coming back on here and gloating. Although, if it's REALLY a lot better, I might do that. ;)

You can always take a minute and disagree with him on his blog. But you have better things to do.

If the more comfortable system means the players are less confused and more likely to fill their run gaps correctly, that should help improve the D by itself.

Is he paying you to post his stuff everywhere?

Seriously you must be his number 1 fan lol.

And I don't think the Run D will improve, the Pass D may a little just because it is a better fit for the LB's and Corners.... However this DL is made up from people who were cut by other teams earlier this season. Until is is overhauled we will not have a consistent pass rush or rush defense.

It's like George and Tony on Seinfeld. I'm George and SW is Tony.



He's one of the few sources that I've read that explains the gap system on a laymen level. I appreciate that and his honesty.

BTW, I was also accused of being THE JoeBucsFan because I posted interesting articles from that site.

We'll see. Maybe we're in for a pleasant surprise. Either way, we need to add some play makers next year on the D Line.

Have not been impressed with any of White's writings.

He very carefully picks what he wants to say and gives only his side of the argument without any concern possible other pertinent facts.

Fail.

The only real improvement we'll see on Sunday is 'want to' from our defense.

That may just tip the scales in our favor.

Not if they want to be taken seriously.

Everyone has a perspective .. whether they know it or not.

Yes - and the better writers know the pros and cons to their perspective and include explanation or discussion of the cons to buttress their thoughts/perspective thoughtfully explaining why they are "right"
