What It Should Look Like

This is simple. For Todd Bowles, it hasn’t been so simple.

Instead of relying heavily on his base nickel that sees both David Harris and Darron Lee in the game at the same time, he needs to up the personnel to match more of a speed game on offense and challenge his big heavies up front to handle the run.

  1. Get Harris off the off the field in passing situations.
  2. Get Calvin Pryor in the box, in almost a LB position.
  3. Make sure a Jordan Jenkins or Lorenzo Mauldin is opposite Muhammad Wilkerson to have a speed presence on the other side.

This is the new-age defense other defensive coordinators are deploying. Use this and challenge the offense to run the ball, first and foremost.
