Alright Coach, thanks for your input.  I won't hold you any longer.  When you see Coach Maxfield, please send him my way.

Coach, thanks for your time.  I'd like to hear your assessment of the first quarter of the season.  Who is performing well, who is under performing, and any reasons why (if you happen to know them).

  One of the biggest areas of concern for me is that only our DE's have recorded a sack this year.  6 between the two, but our DTs are almost non-factors right now and I dont know why that is.  We aren't generating nearly enough pressure.

That's surprising.  I know Franklin and Wynant are rookies and growing pains are to be expected, but Richardson is a vet.  There is definite talent there, so it is for sure troubling that they are doing so little so far.  That lack of pressure is giving the opposing QB all day to make his reads, hence all the yards and points we've been giving up. 

Are they all working hard in practice and putting in time in the film room?  This isn't a discipline thing is it?

  I wouldn't say the rookies are working like men possessed, but they aren't acting out negatively either.  Richardson works his tail off, but he's just not been getting off the blocks well.

I know you prefer a more conservative approach when it comes to blitzing, but with our DT's not getting any results out there right now, I feel like we should increase those numbers a bit to put pressure on the Quarterback. At least until we see Franklin and Richardson getting some push without utilizing the blitz.

Would increasing the percentages 25% across the board on 1st, 2nd, and 3rd downs throw too big of a wrench in your defensive scheme?

No, it wouldn't.  It's honestly only probably adding 3-4 blitz plays more per game, not a big deal.

Alright, we'll do that then.  Hopefully that means we get to the QB 3 or 4 more times a game, and that can disrupt their momentum a bit, and get into their heads.

Thanks Coach.  Talk to you later.

*****

Can I speak with Coach Tomlin please?

LT, thanks for your time.  I've already spoken to Coach Bryce about his thoughts on the first quarter of the year, but I wanted to talk to you and get your impression of what we've done the last four weeks.  What's working, what's not, that sort of thing.

Rose, can I speak with Mumbasa please? Last meeting this week, I promise.

Mumbasa, I know that your full report is forthcoming but I wanted to touch base with you on a pair of guys - Kurtis Coughlin and Michael Kilpatrick. How are they coming along?
