Scheme Vs Personnel - The Fewell Case


I notice, in almost every thread, there seems to be this little battle being fought over BBVer's. So I thought why not create a Fan Post dedicated to this very issue.

I say, Fewell with his back against the wall was forced (by players and TC) to switch the scheme from a read a react defense to one that err's on the side of aggresion. Thus we have seen the 3 man rush revert back to wrinkle of the defense instead of being the defense... Constant pressure brought on by a 5th rusher at times has really helped the defensive line. Also, Keeping the DT's in the game and playing them has also boosted the defense. Man Press defense from Webby and ARoss prevented AR from having a career day, as opposed to the umbrella zone that allowed charlie whitehurst to throw for 350 yards against us.

The opposing view point is, injuries have finally subsided, thus we have stability in our personnel.. Which leads to everyone being on the same page. Which then leads itself to everybody executing Fewells scheme flawlessly. Causing Fewell to not ever having to change his approach to the defense.

So lets have it out. You cannot pick both. Its either one or the other... because what fun is it to pick the neutral side...
