Sadly, I did not think josh knows how much he does not know about playing defense for us.

But on a positive note: I love that bb brought mayo in to coach our defense. Best bb move since he begged Dante to come back.
Mayo is going to be a force as a coach for us. And I think guys are going to love playing for him.

Is this good or does this mean the Pats offense isn't that hard =D

I still have some concerns though about why Uche was still only used in half the snaps this year at Michigan and seen only as a pass rush specialist guy.

.

I can almost guarantee that it was for the same reason that Brady struggled to get reps with at Michigan. Damn donors putting pressure on the coach..

So everybody is sold on Mayo being our next DC? I think Stephen B is gonna give him a run for his money. Possibly co-DC's or something?

baby b should run the “x” and “0” part of the defense. Mayo should be guy leading the players, firing up the players and getting them to operate as a cohesive singular unit.

I don't care if he's albert ****ing einstein, if he could learn it this quickly how are there possibly guys who had years and still couldn't do it?

He learned the basic concepts.

The defense is predicated on reading & recognizing a multitude of formations, tendencies etc. If he can't do that consistently he won't play.

Isn't he a pass rush specialist? This is a first person account - in this situation you do this, in that situation you do that... He'd not figuring out a lot of coverage stuff here. He's not learning "the whole defense" in 2 min., he's learning what he does in 2 minutes. Or, the first 2 minutes of it.

I like what I hear about the kid, and hope his play matches his current confidence. I'm sure when he makes a mistake in camp, Belichick will let it slide since he's already learned the defense and all.

DC Don Brown felt he was best as a pass rush guy, and not a run-stopper. Michigan played a couple of teams last year that were overwhelmingly run focused (OSU and UW).

But on the flip side- a lot of U-M fans feel like Brown should have been more flexible with a talent like Uche.
