Post Should we blitz more?
Simple thought. We're rushing 4 more often than any team in the league and 7 men in coverage can't get the job done. DLmen are getting doubled at random and extra blockers are also throwing them off their game.

depends on a lot of factors about the opponent particularly the qb and the skill players. against tampa bay with glennon playing qb and only vincent jackson as a major offensive threat i would definitely blitz provided the front four cant generate pressure on its own

How about a 5-2 base defense? Idonije Suh Fairley in the middle and Ansah/Young on the outside? It's not like the nickel CB we almost always have on the field does anything.

the nickel cb is a lot better than idonije but maybe that could work with mosley in there. but the depth isnt there on the dl to do this consistently. they also lack lbs that are much of anything as passrushers - they really have to come free to make a play on a blitz its rare for them to beat an OLman in those situations. its funny how little people appreciated aaron berry, he was pretty damn good covering the slot. maybe ansah coming back will help bc they miss that clean up the mess DE
