A nice piece from the trib on Sutton.

Quote:
“I've been moving around a little bit, and it's giving me a lot of opportunity,” Sutton said. “I'm trying to expand and keep building on what I learned last year. The more opportunities and reps I get, I can capitalize on them and make plays on the ball. That's what it comes down to.” (same article)

I like having a lot of packages and a wide range of personnel. But if the emphasis isnt on tackling and defensive backfield communication- it will all just be window dressing. The league is going to see a lot more RPO because of the Eagles (its an imitation league)- lets hope that this is their way of combating that.

Yeah but defense does win you the game. Just like that of offense scores you the points.

Preaching to the choir coach. Thought this was the plan all along. Now is the "talent" on the roster enough?

I liked Sutton's game more than Artie's game last year. When Haden went down, I thought Sutton stepped in and outplayed everyone else (aside from Hilton), yet they continued to pull him off the field and put sensabaugh in. Him and Hilton were our two best tacklers as well.

Looks like you're telling me Yes! Yes there is enough talent in the right places to carry out this plan. So my [two part] question becomes... Can they put it all together excelling at generating turnovers and/or getting off the field on 3rd Downs? That's my $64,000.00 question(s).

Nothing wrong with the pass rush or pass rush strategy... they were excellent last year, even with Dupree, Hargrave, & Tuitt apparently playing at less than 100% health. I'm excited to see Keion Adams added to the mix, and the addition of Joshua Frazier covers for the risk of Hargrave not playing up to his best of 2016.

I thought safety play the past two years was a huge problem... apparently, they agreed, and they did something about it.

They struggled to stop the run because:
A. missed tackles
B. failure to address ILB roster depth in august/september
C. three players in starting front 7 were playing with back or upper body injuries
D. Artie Burns

I hope C. will be better with health. A should be improved, simply because most of the personnel has improved. B. is still unaddressed unless Morgan Burnett or one of the other safeties is going to play ILB in nickel.

Giving up an inordinate number of over 40 yard plays is a huge problem that will likely revert to the mean... but I am sure hoping for some competition for Artie Burns.
