Anything that helps our slow Defense play faster can’t be bad … right?
There’s an interesting take in this article.
One of the first might be paring down the number of defensive packages the team utilizes. Through four games, the team has rolled out 121 different lineup combinations.
the three teams with the fewest lineup combinations — Tampa Bay, Pittsburgh and Tennessee — all happen to be top-10 scoring defenses.
Could it be that simple? Is MP and his defense trying to do too much?
I took something else from the article too. Players are talking about not trusting each other and overthinking too much… that’s what poorly coached teams do.
This week MP has said that they need to improve consistency and he’s going to simply things to do it.
I learned in college that Repetition is key to being more reactive. Our coach would run the same plays over and over and over until he was satisfied everyone was doing their job correctly.
Look at GB. Their one of the best in the league at screen passes. This comes from repetition. It’s clear they work on it a lot.
