The defense being unpredictable is paramount to countering the offense. One thing you always heard about Peyton Manning was his ability to read coverages. If you always do the same thing you are releasing the QB from a pre-snap read on pass coverage.
Hopefully he can earn a roster spot and help the Browns. Best wishes, Braxton!
Preaching to the choir here - Hartline is such an unbelievable upgrade at WR coach in all facets. He showed high character and great talent on the field and he brings those attributes with him as a coach. Quality coaches will recruit and mentor quality players.
The defense is going to be much improved this season from philosophy to fundamentals to execution. There is a chip of those guys' shoulders and they will make sure Silver Bullets is a proper title.
Clarett's turnaround in life is a great story and how he is impacting the future of many youth in his hometown is a great legacy he is building.
If indeed the rumor mill is bringing true news of an injury on the D-line, the Zach Harrison hype may increase a bit.
I feel like I can put him in that Cam Newton category,” K.J. Hill said.
Regardless of our view of Newton, mine of him is not that positive, as a person, Auburn does not win the 2010 BCS National Title without him. If Fields can even be mentioned in a conversation with Newton still at the end of the season, Ohio State will likely be having a very special season.
Glad to see Devin Smith having a good preseason. Hopefully he can have a great year in Dallas.
My anticipation of the upcoming season is reaching a fever pitch. I have been and still am trying to keep calm but today is just another huge step towards kickoff.
The impact of these men this season will be paramount. 12 days!
Congratulations to Justin Fields. Buckeye Nation, let's embrace him.
Fraser always seemed to be making plays on the DL. He was one of my favorite players in that time period.
Bachie and Parsons have been mentioned so I will go with Chaisson from LSU. Shore up the LB corps!
HIll's decsion to return - along with Fuller and Harrison on defense - was huge to the 2019 Buckeyes. He has great hands, route running and toughness. I believe that he will easily eclipse the reception record and have his name in the Ohio State football record book.
Several huge announcements today from the Buckeyes - starting QB and captains. Definitely looking forward to those.
I don't know about individual numbers, but I do believe that the total defensive numbers will be much improved this season. I am looking for a top 25 defense in all categories and total defense as well.
I believe UC will be a very tough game. Sure, Ohio State is much more talented, but Fickell is a great coach and they will have a chip on their shoulder. The BIG is going to be brutal, but that is what you want. One game at a time. #FTTE!
The problem with targeting is that it doesn't consider changes in the offensive player's head angle or them lowering their head and leading with it. There has to be common sense and an understanding of what is happening on that particular play to rightly make a decision accurately in any particular instance.
Mantras like these are very beneficial in life. As a coach for more than 26 years, being able to focus a group on a mantra in certain situations is concise and beneficial.
