No. They are safeties.
Every position has multiple responsibilities.
They very well could to maximize their strength at LB.
Theirs are expanded
No they aren’t. What do you think safeties do in other teams.
My take on this is that BB will be HC and DC and on game days Mayo will call the plays.
I originally thought Mayo was just getting ready for insurance reasons. Coaches have missed a game or got injured during games before. But the more he does it the more it seems to be how it will work. This would mean BB can focus on both sides of the ball during the game still.
But during the week I have to imagine BB is the primary DC Mayo can't be ready for all that could he?
I've seen him listed at 260. I'm just reporting what I think I saw on Thursday. It wouldn't be the first time someone that size lined up in that spot by a long shot. It doesn't mean he's a DT but it does mean he's seen as more useful inside than outside in some situations and you can't say that about all our edge rushers.
Read this if you have spare time.
This is what Chung does.
This is what it seemed JoeJuan and Obi were doing on Thursday.
Big nickel package emerging as NFL's hottest defensive trend
I'm not debating this anymore. We see it differently.
OK. I remember Chandler Jones lined up on the inside vs MIA in 2014 in a 3rd and long in that NASCAR package. Maybe he was doing that?
Yup playing safety
Safeties are hybrids by definition. That’s the point.
I think what we'll see is 1-5-5 alignments and 2-4-5 alignments in passing situations where we're doing everything we can to confuse the opposing quarterback. I think we saw some alignments like that in the Super Bowl.
All based on the player and scheme fit. That is my point.
Calhoun has been playing stand up OLB here.
Why do we still call 3-4 or 4-3 the "base D" when every team these days is in sub packages most of the time?
IMO, the coaching staff is building this D with the nickel package in mind first....
OK, I would be shocked if Sam beat out King or Calhoun as a Ster.
That's exactly what I'm referring to.
I don't think I can find a single example of someone actually doing this in the thread. We all generally understand that the sub packages are dominant these days.
