    This is my most interesting thing to look forward to. Lovies defense was just abysmal on all fronts and I’m sure these players are excited to get into a defense that doesn’t rely on fucking soft coverage every play.
    Can’t wait to see Lavonte and Alexander blitzing more. It worked last year and then they just wouldn’t go back to it for quarters at a time.

    lavonte played at a near-MVP level in his second year to follow up a stellar rookie campaign, largely due to great instincts when attacking the line of scrimmage. the last coach eliminated all of that from his game and tried to turn him into a guy he coached 20 years ago. Lavonte still made some plays but overall it was a huge mistake. mike smith was coaching in the division when lavonte first lit up the league, he knows what the guy can do and he should be excited to inherit a sleeping giant like LD54

    I hope the new defense is aggressive, punishing, and gives away nothing easy or without a price to be paid by the opposing offensive player. You know, kind of like Schiano’s defenses were. I find it interesting that Ohio State and Schiano’s defense will probably have DE Joey Bosa, CB Eli Apple, and LB Darron Lee all get draftd in the first round. S Vonn Bell will likely go in the second. The guy wasn’t liked by the media or fans in Tampa, but he knows how to coach defenses.
