Al Groh contends you can’t judge a defense – his defense, anyway – in the context of one horrendous collapse. No, grasshopper, you’ve to step back, take a deep breath and appreciate the ebb and flow of an entire season. Or something like that.
“Those answers only come through a review of the full body of work,” Groh said. “A full body of work is a full 12-game season, so that answer is yet to come.”
Al can be mellow because he knows the secret to defense: “All of these plays, no matter what your scheme is, obviously the play never ends until the player is tackled…” Well, except when a player scores untouched on a 25-yard run in overtime to win the game.
