    You said nickel. A nickel D has 4 down linemen, 2 backers and 5 dbs or 3 linemen, 3 backers and 5 dbs.

    Jones-Watt-Phillips-Golden
    Simmons-Collins
    Alford-Thompson-Murphy-Baker-Butler

    or

    Watt-Phillips-Golden/Allen
    Jones-Collins-Simmons
    Alford-Thompson-Murphy-Baker-Butler

    Keim has in no way ever shown he is up to this level of prevarication.

    I understand the desire to have Collins play making ability in the middle, but expect him to take over for Chandler Jones next season.

    but you can say that about any position. Yeah if guys are special it’s very different than just being ordinary

    Is this just deliberate obtuseness? I clarified in my post.

    We don't run a true nickel. We run a hybrid defense. Get off Madden

    3 linemen, 3 backers, 5 DBs against their 11 personnel.

    This is our most common defense as of last year.

    3 down linemen. 3 backers. 5 DBs

    This is their hybrid base defense.

    Is that the play where Simmons got lost and allowed that opening Touchdown?...and then was benched?

    Really?

    If Michael Bidwill wasn't intimately involved in the draft process and, no doubt, how player X or Y will be integrated into the "0" or "D" this could be true, but he is... so it isn't. IMO.

    Might be. I was just trying to find random footage online where they are against 11 personnel

    i see standard 3-4 here

    Kennard and Campbell are standing up at the line as OLBs. Simmons and Hicks are stacked behind the line as ILBs. Missing is the free safety out of the picture.

    yes?

    Based on how bad the D was at the end of the year then I'm glad one of those starters won't be playing as much.
