Are you worried about the defense’s less than stellar showing against Buffalo in the first half last week? Don’t be. Todd Grantham wants you to chill. He’s on the mother.
“Any time you have split-safety coverage and you’re rushing four guys, there are six gaps for four guys, so it’s critical that you collapse those pockets,” defensive coordinator Todd Grantham said. “When you collapse the pocket outside in, you constrict that area. But if you create a seam in there, a guy can get out and make some yards, because you’ve got vertical separation between the rush going one way and the receivers moving down the field.
“We’ve addressed it with the players as far as what they need to do, and we will continue to work to make sure that doesn’t happen.”
