Grady had a sack on a 3 man rush; coverage sack. Ulbrich was being groomed to take over playcalling duties for a few weeks now. This wasn't just changing who called the D. The problem was the secondary and the new 3-4/5-2 front that forced Vic/Takk to stand up too much along with the TERRIBLE secondary player; especially once Neal went down. Quinn's system isn't the issue. It's the smaller decisions and overthinking; like scheme adjustment but it hurting Vic/Takk trying to rush upright and also valuing Morris with WRs>DBs when considering Sanu/Julio in that WR room vs Tru/Allen with all the young cats in the DB room...while we were getting destroyed due to coverage problems... That shouldn't have required half the season, a 6 game losing streak, and the Bye week to change but maybe it did when you're in the battle week to week thinking it should be working. Overthinking is what DQ did this offseason. Ulbrich is now ready to call the D and Morris is there preventing the DBs from being an outright liability. Amazingly, Vic/Takk and 4 man front doing it's job now? True, we did have a sack on a 3-man rush, but I'm thinking that soft zone was way tighter than usual. Also agree it was not just Ulbrich, Morris had things in way better order in the secondary. But the overall dynamic of this defense yesterday made it look like it was 180 degrees different from what we'd been running. Looking forward to see if this is just a one-game anomaly or the beginning of a stiffer, less-predictable defense with Ulbrich and Morris running things.
