Q: First impressions being on the field?
A: Fast. Aggressive. Up-tempo. A lot of fun.
Q: What do you see from the multiple looks on defense? Is it different?
A: Extremely different. Extremely different. (Laughs) There are times where I could not even tell you what position I play because I really do not know. It is all over the place. It is definitely something that is going to put different match-ups out there on the field and put us in different positions. Have guys free and be aggressive.
Q: Do you like that? Keeping the offense guessing whether you are up or down.
A: Yeah, because obviously when you study it I know where I have to go but it is almost impossible for you to predict where I am going to be at. I have never done that before. I have pretty much played every position besides safety, I think. (Laughs)
Q: Does that give you a new level of appreciation given you have been in different defenses before?
A: Definitely. I have had a chance to play I guess you would say a hybrid 4-3, 3-4 before. This is similar with the possibilities. I know the possibilities that are there. You have somebody that can schematically scheme up something to create edges and create wide open guys. The one thing I have not done before is play this many positions. I am ready for it. It is just going to be very exciting and us as players are very excited. Every day when we come in it is an upbeat tempo. You have to be. The atmosphere is completely changed here.
