Ė If there is one coach who is aware of the challenge, itís Denver head coach John Fox. He moved the Broncos from a 3-4 scheme to a 4-3 before the 2011 season. Last year, the Broncos ranked second in total defense, allowing just 290.8 yards per game. But Fox said itís not easy for coaches such as Kiffin and Marinelli to evaluate players on film.
ďAny time you change itís difficult,Ē Fox said Thursday morning at the scouting combine in Indy. ďBut evaluating guys Ö because youíre watching tape of them playing an entirely different position, any time there is a change, itís difficult. But how hard players will work to learn it and master it Ö thatís what the whole game is about.Ē
Fox reiterated many times the most important aspect is finding the right player to fit the scheme.
ďIt takes a lot of hard work,Ē he said. ďI donít think any of it is easy. Youíre dealing with people and making decisions on people. I think at the end of the day Ö itís how they perform and how hard they work to get better. Really, thatís the kind of people youíre looking for because their work ethic is critical.Ē
But while the base defense changed in Denver and will change in Dallas, Fox pointed out itís not as much of a change as people think.
