I kind of got the impression that Cecil called a lot of those blitzes to see what his young guys (McCourty/Verner) could do on the outside on an island. Of course, I agree that we will see more blitzes than in previous years and hope they execute them as well as they seemed to tonight.
the tackling was superb across the board.
basic fundamentals of the game that sometimes get lost along the way...but last night the titans swarmed to the ball carrier and had quite a few tackles for losses and kept short passes across the middle to a minimum gain in the first 3 quarters of the game.
defense definitely looks like it will be much improved from last year. encouraging.
