The defensive scheme got simplified so everyone could understand their responsibilities and play fast. Each of the past few weeks the team has been visibly prepared for the strengths of the opponent. Depth and speed issues have been masked as much as possible by being flexible on personnel and not putting the players out on an island. Players are more sound in the fundamentals of better protecting running lanes against mobile QB's, tackling has improved tremendously and we're getting pressure from a 4 man rush without selling out the farm and exposing the secondary. Notice too that Brewer recently has been playing "spy" on the most mobile QB's and making an impact. Cam Sutton is a stud. An amazing addition to the defensive backfield in finding and developing a Freshman in the course of an SEC campaign like that. Vereen and Sapp have made huge strides as well. What a difference this staff has made in one short year.
