    HAha!!

    I was actually thinking that!

    I agree about the multiple fronts as well. I think we have ton of mix-and match parts here. Watching our D could be a lot of fun!

    I think we're on the same page here ... and you mentioned something else that I agree with, Newman is better in a man scheme. I bet we see a whole lot of man this year ...

    I agree here ... most likely he'll move up to the line out of the 4-3 making it a transition to the 5-2 ...

    Depending on the situation, we may see Roy moved up to the line as well. I love the angles in which we can blitz from - everywhere.

    The 5-2 is a great COLLEGE defense, mostly against option teams. OU and Nebraska used to run the 5-2 because of this. It is not, however, a good defense against a team with Peyton Manning or Donovan McNabb.

    I really like the 5-2 in certain situations... I think against a team running a west coast offense it would be a liability though...

    It's actually more of a High School defense ...

    Slow down there, Slappy. I'm not saying we run it as our base. Rather as a situational defense ... more of a transition from the 4-3 as Ravi has stated ... and this isn't going to be your typical high school 5-2 ... it can even become a 5-3-3 with Roy moving up to the box ... it's about the pass rush and getting your best 11 players on the field as BZ has stated.

    We're going to get these guys on the field. IMO Ellis is worried about a whole bunch of nothing ... he'll have a role to play, he just doesn't know it yet.

    whoa hold those horses there dippy I said I liked it in certain situations not that it should be run as a base defense...but I think it should not be used at all against a team that runs a west coast offense or any other that can easily audible into a horizontal passing game...

    where you got that I wanted to run it as a base I have no idea
