I hope all this offseason hype doesn't faceplaint against a wall when we find out we still can't cover screen passes come week 1.

That’s an inherent weakness in the defense.  If the front is constantly trying to penetrate and get upfield you call screens and draws, the blitz beater stuff.

Yup, and lots of work to TES who our safeties or lbs might have to cover.  The jets will see a steady diet of this kind of thing.

But we don't blitz.  We send 4 guys every time so if they're penetrating, it falls on the LBs to recognize and neutralize.  No great defense routinely gives chunk yardage on screens.

It’s the same concept of how you beat it. It puts a lot of pressure on the LBs. which is why they like hybrid players.

They don’t. Chunk plays are normal. Nobody shuts down offenses yards wise anymore. That’s why there is a premium for sacks and turnovers. The Super Bowl last year was 38-35.  The Eagles defense was great. It’s unrealistic to think that any defense is going to shut down chunk plays, especially a defense as aggressive as this one. 
 

the top offenses were creating nearly 100 yards per quarter last year.  Not sure how that happens without chunk plays ?

- Jamien Sherwood is penciled in as the third linebacker in the starting lineup next to CJ Mosley and Quincy Williams. He's gotten reps both outside next to Mosley — and as Mosley's top backup inside. He played safety at Auburn and he's come a long way since being drafted in 2021. He also bulked up: Sherwood weighed 212 as a rookie and now is at 234. 

"I’ve made a great transition from not knowing anything to feeling like I know just about everything on the field," he said.
