Expect the same for the rest of the preseason. What you haven't seen yet is the Voodoo defense, which is the real killer.
I'm always trying to see past the smoke and mirrors. I really want to see if they can play straight up, mano-a-mano and get it done. They gave up 4-5 per carry. I don't like that at all, not even in pre-season. They looked very active, flying all over the field, scrapping and making plays. I want to see what happens when they have to dig in and play honest against a quality opponent. Can they pressure with four? Can they cover for more than 3 seconds? Its still early.

I don't imagine those questions will ever be answered for you, Gregg's entire gameplan is based on smoke and mirrors, and the guys he chooses for his defense are guys that can sell the trickery. I don't think there are any "straight-up mano-a-mano" set-ups in his entire scheme. If that is the type of football you want to see, you should probably watch the Jets or the Steelers.
