Here he is essentially admitting that they are "not dominant." I know, but it's a little disconcerting to see him outright admitting that.On bend-but-don’t-break defense:
You want to be dominant. But if that’s off the table, you want to make sure where you’re going to be good, it’s going to be keeping teams out of the end zone. That’s one area we have done a good job. You don’t like it too when you have No. 12 on the other side of the ball … you want him back out there. We have to get off the field. When we have opportunities to do it, we have to take advantage of it.
Someone should ask him WHY. They played very well, first 1/4 of the season imo.
That's cool, but I'd like to get specifics about how Gary has improved. Get him on one of these shows with LeRoy Butler and let's see examples of his improvement on film. "Before and after" clips.On Rashan Gary:
He’s graded out well when he’s been in there. He’s had some good rushes and gotten some pressures. Like Kyler Fackrell, he’s a victim of two other guys in that room playing extremely well and getting production. He’s on a progression, he’s on a path that we feel he’s made improvement from Day 1 and we’re certainly confident that’s going to continue. … He has the ability to play (inside or outside). That’s what I see in his ability, a guy who can rush outside early or bump inside.
He did state that Gary could move inside. Size to stuff the run, speed to cover. Might need a year to get good at coverage tho.
Gary can also put his hand in the dirt, which he did in college. Kingsley Keke has been getting more reps on the Dline. Seems like Montravius has faded since the early games.
