If conk walks, I would say RT in the first.
We have a pretty gaping hole at OLB too...
Free agent to fill that whole would be my guess.
Not true. Go back and look at our secondary’s numbers before and after the Butler injury. This defense went downhill fast!
It slipped for a couple of reasons, not just because of Butler. Pees pulled a 180 with blitzes. When Tanny took over he didnt have to be as aggressive as we were going into the 2nd half with a lead.
Pees had to change the game plan because Butler was out. Our secondary got weaker so we needed more guys to drop back to try and accommodate.
One might think that had Pees not come out and said he changed the level of agressive plays because he was sitting on the lead.
Generally when you lose a CB, you try to speed the clock up with blitzes to mitigate the lack of talent.
Or the opposite. Both strategies are used.
If Pees hadnt said what he said then I might think dropping into zone was a sign Butler was a major cog.
Also dont forget the timming of Simmons coming back also probably influenced things a bit. When you get a boost to the DLine you dont need to send 5 guys as often.
I thought we also lost Jackson for a few weeks around the same time so it was really Ryan by himself (CBs anyway) and Brock still learning the system with Sims and Hooker.
