Re: Who the New Coaches Are (UPDATED)

Excuse the ignorance, I am the first to admit I know very little about football schemes and philosophy. (I am a big football fan, but have never played more than a turkey bowl). What is the point of having a inside and an outside linebacker coach in a 4-2-5? If there are only 2 linebackers on the f...

Re: Queta Draft Buzz

He definitely has the frame and athleticism. He is a very good passer and defender. His offensive development had been a bit slow and now he is a couple of years older. He sometimes has problems finishing in traffic and tries to finesse it when he needs to go strong. He has a good chance to get dra...

Re: Cash Gilliam

I have big concerns about running a 4-man front, but am hoping for the best. The 4-2-5 is a great defense if you have the right D-ends and great corners. If not it can get ugly fast. And finding those D-ends is the hardest part because they are in high demand, short supply and are probably the top ...
