Also, scheme wise you give up the interior rush when playing spread teams in order to protect the edge.....
Playing a pro style offense this week will allow the D to match hat for hat in the box and it plays to our strengths!
Mother fricking this. The year LSU had that bad arse D West Virginia racked up over 500 yards on em. Chavis can stop a Pro style offense with 11 blind kids. The past several years the spread teams that run that option bull shite have hurt the defense the most.
Our D isn't as good this year, period. We all know it and we all knew it was gonna be down before the season started. They are getting better and our offense is going to have to win us some games this year (for a change)
I think our D is good enough to slow down teams like Georgia and A&M and if our O plays as good as they have been, that's all we need.
Some of you need to realize this isn't 2011 and we're not going to be able to stop every team 95% of the time. Chavis knows what he is doing and he'll have the best guys out there. If right now that's Welter, so be it.
The D has carried the O for several years, it's their turn to carry this team... and I think they will.
