I dont think that he is saying anything earth-shattering. Martinez is often maligned by the UGA fanbase for running a simple defense.
I would also add that Monty Kiffin is often regarded as the best defensive coordinator in the NFL. Having great athletes who played disciplined principles and tackle well is a pretty good way to play winning defense. Not much else to it.

Nice game by the Dawgs. Congrats on the win. Now don’t screw up and lose to Florida, because that would really tick me off.
How about the Dawgs beat Florida and ya’ll get it together and beat Bama.
We’ll call it even.
1. When you are getting your ass kicked constantly, the last thing you need to do is talk about how the teams that are doing it, are doing so with a simple scheme.
