how's this for a speed defense

Mike Pettine, our d-coordinator said that this offseason that he wanted to infuse speed into our defense. that was sorely needed as our defense was painfully slow at times, espically facing speed teams like the eagles, patriots, and even the raiders. we needed speed, and we certainly got it with several draft picks, including demario davis and josh bush. so i had an idea for a dominant, fast defense. It's also a 4-3, just like mike said he wants to put more in. So, here it is.

D-Line-Wilkerson and Maybin on the ends, and Kendrick Ellis or Marcus Dixon and Quinton Coples on the inside. think about it. Quinton coples always excelled on the inside, that's where he was at his best anyway. he can provide a huge inside rush, and Ellis was a beast in college. With Dixon, he was very good on passing downs at providing a rush. that provides a huge interior rush which would take up the center and the guards. that leaves Wilk and Maybin on the outside with the tackles. Maybin can easily speed rush a tackle and get to the qb, while Wilk is both fast and strong. that might leave the offense leaving an extra man to block one of them, like a TE. this would no doubt help with NE, leaving either Gronk or Hernandes to block. and let's say the qb has to fall in the pocket. he can't go up the middle because of Coples and either Ellis or Dixon. That qb is trapped. Sack all day.

Linebackers-On the outside, Demario Davis and Bryan Thomas, in the middle, Davis Harris. Demario Davis has the speed to cover anyone, Wr, Te, or Rb. We will need him to be our cover guy, a hybrid safety/linebacker, if you will. also, maybe he can blitz off the edge. also, he will need to stop the run. bryan thomas will be lined up over maybin don't worry. he will stop the run while maybin pass rushes. David Harris will do everything, stop the run and pass.

Secondary- Corners- Revis and Cromartie. best cover guys in the game. completely takes the wr's out of the game. Safeties- Landry and Bell. Landry-FS, Bell-SS. yes, they struggle aganist the pass, but with the pass rush, it won't be much of a problem. anyway, Antonio Allen and Josh Bush get to be mentored for a year. it all works out.

let me know what you think. JETS ALL DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
