Yep! Man, I thought Coach Nolan lost his mind when moved an often injured AA, coming off IR, to of all places, MLB!Another reminder that our coaching staff is just aces. Mike Nolan could be a DC or even a head coach again. But he's making our LBs into more of a beast squad than they already are.
It's crazy how fast we went from not having any LBers to have a pretty strong unit. Nolan has had a lot to do with that. He gets the most of his guys.
If AA can stay healthy I think he's going to be the next young defensive player to take the next step. He has everything you could ask for from a LBer physically. Everyone talks about how high his football IQ is. Hopefully this is the year he puts it all together and becomes a standout.
I hope we play a lil more Cover 2 this year too! IMO, we didn’t have the players, esp LB to run it in the past, But after watching our LBs play last year, finally, we do. All we need to do now is find another S to pair with Marcus on the back end, and we could be a pretty good Cover 2 D.Alex can handle the deep middle in Cover 2, which seems to be a defense we’ve been trying to implement under Dennis. Demario plays great underneath and at the line. Their new roles make sense when you look at it from the base defense. In other calls they are absolutely all over the place.
I have loved watching the defense the last couple of years and I have a lot of faith in our current LB corps.
I agree. 2016 we ran it a lot. Early 2017, especially the first two weeks, Vacarro proved he couldn’t be trusted in deep halves. We had to switch away from it and that’s where we found our success.I hope we play a lil more Cover 2 this year too!
