Re: Attacking D = Reboot

Re: Attacking D = Reboot 

People might be missing the point on Sheard making the transition. Yeah, he stands up a lot and can rush the passer, not a big problem. But OLB's in the 3-4 don't rush on every down. Sometimes they have to cover a TE or RB on short routes, they have to make quick decisions about where the play is going and what area they need to protect. 4-3 DE's rush the passer, set the outside edge, and play the run. Unless you're Zone blitzing (and Jauron did not), these guys have no experience in pass coverage.

Maybe Sheard can do it. But it's as much mental as physical.

To Nas: Totally agree Mitigating factor: 49 large in cap space. There's no physical type pre-requisite for a good cover corner or free saftey. If (IF) the pro player personnel guys are sharp, we should be able to get those guys outside the draft, and maybe the LBer's we would need as well. At least a combination of draft and FA might speed the process and also help add  some veteran presence that could cut the schedule too.

We should be able to buy some talent, the rest is teaching/gelling/team kumbaya.
