  1. Good I hope not. If someone else was defensive coordinator other than Quinn, I would have believed you. Only way i see that scenario materializing is if our offense lays a massive egg.
  2. You aren't worried how potent their running game will be with Kubiak as the coordinator? I think they will be a lot more competent than last year because of him.
  3. I mentioned that in another thread about the idea of using grace as that 3rd safety on passing downs since we don't have Wilcox anymore. He is practically almost Keanu size.
  4. Thanks man. Wouldn't that mean you get more explosion out of a 4 point stance since it's similar to a track get off? Why wouldn't that make Takk and Vic more explosive vs 2 point like fatboi mentioned in his post?
  5. Clueless fan here. What's a two point stance and what makes it different from a 3 point?
  6. Also took us a long time to recover from losing Ovie too. Good thing mularkey run game is back. One of the few coordinators that still value power blocking full backs and knows how to use them. It's up to Dirk to call the run plays.
  7. Was it at guard or center? I remember reading a posted article about trying him at center. What did he improve on? Was it pass pro or run blocking?
  8. Do you think that was due to him being intimidated by his lack of strength to take on the play?
  9. I was thinking thre same thing too. I think devondre is more than fast enough. Could the word you're looking for be instinctual? I think that's the only thing preventing Campbell from taking that step into that next echelon.
  10. Thanks for the clarification. I just assumed the 2 backers in 4-3 under and 3-4 were really just inner linebackers even though they are labeled Mike and will. Still got lots to learn lol. I have another question. Since Wilcox went down, could grace act as the third safety in certain packages? He looks like a safety out there.
  11. What position does he play then? Didn't he play Mike and will (the inner linebacker positions) last year? Since he isn't near the size and weight of a devondre, that means he is only suitable for the other ILB position next to debo. Am I missing something? Also what packages do you envision both playing?
  12. Even if you have unique athletes on your team like Deion Jones? Im not saying he can match up on a number 1 receiver but maybe a 3 or 4 perhaps?
  13. According to your previous explanation, it's mainly because a lineman/ linebacker will get matched up against a wide receiver right? Will that be the same weakness for a bear front? (I assume that's a 4-4 alignment)
  14. Guess I assumed because we have some of the top athletes at their position on our team that we could be one if the only teams able to run it uniquely like when Pete Carroll did with the 4-3 under. Also why would a zone blitz be more different in a 5-2 than 3-4? I want to add that my very basic and limited understanding of zone blitz is dropping a lineman into coverage while the 4th rusher blitz from a different position.
  15. Thanks for taking the time to explain this to me. So I take it that 5-2 is excellent against the I-formation and goal line packages? How will we fare against Sean peyton and his many packages with Alvin Kamara or an Andy Reid's offense? I don't see the 5-2 matching up well against those. How about using the 5-2 against the wildcat and read option that physical teams like Baltimore gashed us with last year?
  16. Aren't the 3-4 and 5-2 the alignments? How coach Quinn uses his past experiences and 4-3 under principle is really what im trying to get a feel for as to how the defense changes in 5-2 and the matchup problems it creates.
  17. Can we seriously make one? I would like to learn what makes the 5-2 special. I know fatboi mentioned how it's weak against spread offenses but considering the athletes we have, is it still a huge weakness? Is it aggressive even if secondary is playing zone? Does it require different type of corners than the standard Richard Sherman size he used to have back in the day? Was there any other team that used the 5-2 last year? Is it mainly used for stopping the run or could it be revolutionized as excellent blitz package compared to a 3-4? Forgive me. It just sounds exciting. I don't know what
  18. Gazoo when are you going to be a beat writer for the Falcons man? You were practically born for it lol. Great post man. I wish you and TDWII can go to camp together and litter the board with updates and your takes. IM DEAD SERIOUS! Anyways good post man. Im not as optimistic as you about the offense but im definitely looking forward to seeing Quinn finally take over to command a more competent defense regardless of injuries.
