Okay, so while I have been watching football for about 13 years now (I'm 22), offense is much easier for me to understand. I'm still trying to figure out the more subtle differences between positions, i.e. strongside linebacker vs weakside, ect. Also, I was looking at our entire roster last night and I wasn't sure exactly what some postions some guys played. So that's what I want to know. While I understand what DTs do compared to LBs, I'm going to ask for it anyways. I want to know the exact responsibility of each position in this defense and which players are there.
**Defensive tackle/Nose Tackle**
Martin, Sagesse, Helmuth, Campbell
**Strongside DE/3 tech DT**
Graham, Patterson, Banks, Van Bergen. I know that according to Brian, these are both the same position essentially, one flanking one side of the NT, the other on the other side.
Herron, Evans, Roh, LaLota (according to Brian on those last 2) I still don't know what this position actually "does"
Ezeh, Brown, Mouton, Fitzgerald, Bell, Hawthorne, Jones, Demens, Smith. I have no idea which guy playes which LB spot (except that Ezeh is a MIKE). What are the differences in the linebacker spots. Which guys play which spots. I know most of these guys are OLB's playing either SAM or WILL. I don't know who is who, however.
Defensive backs are pretty straight forward. I think there is another hybrid back here, however, if anyone wants to explain what it is or who..that would be great. Any help with the defensive side of the ball is appreciated.
