Quick has another week to add some wrinkles to what is his D. I think he stripped some things back so I like and hope to think he has the base built…now build it up.
I think he’ll need to apply more pressure. Whenever we sent 4 there was sort of pressure…but we can’t afford Nichols that added time.
We tried to disguise blitzs with Brack and Macho but I could tell they were not going to blitz. I hope we can get more creative with these looks and make Nichols uneasy about his reads.
I saw very little of bringing Knox from the middle…not much halfback blitzing either…so I would like to think he can add some to what they have and get Nichols thinking he knows what he see’s…and surprise…INT.
George and Munroe delivered in the middle. On one of Munroe’s sacks Chick was double teamed and Munro took advantage and got the QB. We need that extra threat.
Shutting down their run game was huge. Brohm got away for a few runs but their RB’s got nothing. We had them in 2nd and long a lot so that is big.
I expect to see more looks and guys coming from different spots. Send that 5th guy with twists and stunts and make that pocket very uncomfortable.
Richie Hall was blitzing a lot…I think 60-70 percent… especially 2nd half. If was nice to see Messam stepping into some blocks and to see Brett rip those blitzes. We didn’t burn them deep but Brett had it figured out and they weren sending 6-7 often. Nobody even eard of hardick #54 I think that has taken away work from Richards. For the kids first game he looked pretty solid.
