What softens up a defense? What takes the edge off the aggressiveness?
What causes blown assignments? We have seen this before and were asking
the same questions after Donavan McNab, Troy Smith and whoever QB'd the Horror,
among others, had their way with us. You need back 7 speed, ability to
play man coverage and front 4 containment or you can not defend a running QB
that can pass decently. Poor/inconsistent LB and safety play have been
our Achilles heel for some time now.
Right now, we are not built to handle teams with great running QBs, but
realistically, few teams are.
