Re: we need a nickel defense
yes i know and thats what im saying, we need a true(r) nickel defense or different personnel. the 4-2-5 is our base defense which is essentially just a nickel defense with the spur as nickelback, but we've always called our different personnel nickel defense as our nickel defense as opposed to our base defense which is a nickel defense.
or if im not going to confuse everyone else including myself with that last sentence, we essentially line up the same, its just different personnel. we saw auguste and swearinger take on that nickelback role last year. this year only golightly, and i cant believe the base personnel is the only option when we've had so many problems in situations when we know the pass is coming.
