I noticed the last 2 weeks that our defense is getting a little more creative to go along with our very creative offense. Last year both sides of the ball were extremely vanilla. The basic plan was to keep everything as simple as possible and let the best athletes win. That worked out usually because we had better athletes than 90% of the league, but it broke down every time we played a team with better athletes or a coach that took advantage of our scheme. I am curious if the arival of Norv, who is obviously a offensive genius, is inspireing Bates and Wanstedt. Last week against the Jets I couldn't beleave who well Bates disguised blitzes and bringing up Freeman on run support. I hope Bates and Dave keep burning the midnight oil trying to figue out how to keep up with Norv.
