“From a philosophical standpoint, the number one thing that you got to do is you got to stop the run,” Grantham said. “You can’t let people run the ball on you.”
From there, as Grantham added, offenses become one-dimensional with the pass and the objective, from a defensive standpoint, is to make the quarterback’s life miserable with a pass-rush and force turnovers.
“If you do that,” Grantham said, “with the identity that we want to play with, which is fast, physical and aggressive, you’re going to be in every game.”
Also, “out of his front seven, Grantham wants physicality, size and an aggressive group that will look to create negative yardage plays.” Hey, I know of a defensive line coach out there he might want to take a look at.
