Mike: Would you take the same type of approach if you were Pees?
Tedy: I think the first thing I’d say to my defensive front is that there will be times when they’ll only have six men in the box to stop the run because we have to worry about this passing game. I’d put some more emphasis on that with the linemen and linebackers. Then I’d concentrate on taking away that inside passing game, which is similar to what others have tried to do with re-routing slot receivers and receiving tight ends. I’d arm my linebackers and slot defenders with various calls — and also using defensive ends at times — to disrupt the passing game inside and between the numbers. Make them beat me outside. I’d also be concerned with running backs offset in the passing game.
