Defensive Coordinator Gregg Williams

Im sure you always want to add good players on defense. Did you want to get bigger on the interior defensive line?

Im a better coach when the guys are big, fast, and tough, but Ive made a career on guys that are two inches two short, ten pounds too light, and a tenth of a second too slow. Weve made a career on making sure that those guys understand how to play too. Just because we got bigger, doesnt answer questions. Weve made tremendous strides in two years on how were building the defense around here. Now these new, bigger, faster players are going to have to play our way. Theyre going to have to buy into what were doing and I have no qualms or questions that they will.

What are your first thoughts on Cameron Jordan?

Hes a good kid. Im real happy hes here and he is one of those guys who just looks makes us look different as far as in uniform. Now he has to quickly adapt to the style of our play. His defensive coordinator in college (Clancy Pendergast) was a coach with me a long time ago in the 90s who was also a coordinator in the NFL. So I know a lot about him and how Clancy used him, so hell fit in with the many different ways that we will use him. Hes just not going to be a stereotypical defensive end. You guys will see him play end on both sides, youll see him play tackle on both sides, and youll see him stand up a little bit. Hes smart enough to do a bunch of things; he just has to get over the information overload in a real quick time, and well find out how good of an education he got at the University of California.

I know you love versatility in guys. People say that Jordan might be better in a 3-4 than a 4-3. Is there too much made of that?

Well let me say this: Who are those people? I dont care what they say.

Wow I would hate to own an All You Can Eat place anywhere near the dome - the defensive line alone would bankrupt the place!!
