    7th snap - This is similar to the 5th snap. They originall show classic 3-4, however Brent shifts to a 1 tech in the center/guard gap pre-snap. I didn't get a screen shot of Brent in the shift this time.

    FWIW, when I say "Price" obviously I mean Brent. I have some glitch in my cranium software that makes me call him Price.

    Ryan really now has the tools to utilize his defensive alignments.

    Last year, he was essentially trying to prevent the collapse of a dam and really only had the tools to plug the hole with his finger. Coverages were awful because we lacked the ability to contest anything.

    We revamped the secondary by adding aggressive press corners... which gives the pass rushers the additional time to get to the QB.

    Combine that with adding Carter into the starting lineup... it gives Ryan an ILB who has the athleticism to drop into coverage, the speed to handle RBs and TEs in the flat, and the potential for a good pass rusher from the ILB spot. Bradie never really provided that. He was a thumper. Carter is a flyer. Ryan wants people flying to the ball.

    Hatchers continual improvement now gives us two defensive lineman in the starting unit that can provide a pass rush (once Ratliff is back).

    Ryan wanted more athleticism across the board. And he got it. Now, I think we'll see more exotic looks and have the horses to pull it off.



    Oh. I almost forgot. The defense can become elitezorz if we move Ratliff to DE and put in a box of fried chicken at NT.

    Was that an adjustment or part of the play call? Do you know what happened on that play (I could go back and watch but thought I'd ask first).

    I think it might be a playcall to disguise the front. Brent did a lot of quick pre-snap shift from 0 nose to 1 tech through the game. I would say he played as more 1 tech through the game than he did straight up 0 nose tech.

    FWIW, for those unfamiliar. The 1 tech generally isn't responsible for maintaining 2 gap control like a "true" nosetackle, but it does typically draw a double team simply because the guard has to help the center keep the defensive lineman from shooting through the gap into the backfield. This is the tech conventionally used by the "run stuffing" DT in a 4-3 defense (aka the Booger McFarland in Tampa as opposed to the Warren Sapp playing 3 tech on the outside shoulder of the guard ). With Brent playing so much 1 tech and Hatcher playing so much 3 tech through this game, you get a sense how Ryan (or Wade) can run a 3-4 defense that employs traditional 4-3 techniques and concepts.

    These two images should erase any doubt (not that there is much) that DWare is a beast. He's already got a half step or more and not a single other D player and some of the Oline has not moved yet. It's clear that the ball has been snapped so he's not offsides.
