Defend the first 10 yards from the line of scrimmage, no matter the formation.
No defense works if you don't have players that can play it. They didn't "nickel and dime" us to death because we played the wrong defensive strategy. Our defense is bad because they are a bunch of newbs out there with bad instincts and bad tackling and they haven't gelled as a unit. It does not matter one iota where our DBs line up because they can not cover receivers as talented and as athletic as A&M's with their QB making perfect passes.
Stop guessing at what defense is going to work. It's our coaches job to try to figure it out.
