Gibbs and Orlando both played high risk, high reward D.
Yes, we would bring a DB and LB regularly. Sometimes we would get burned. But even with D’ofrio’s low Takeaway numbers last year we still have more Takeaways than any team over the last five years.
When you get the ball you get more scoring opportunities, the other team deflates, and the D stays fresher.
With the Briles O I think it is even MORE important to play Takeaway defense. Otherwise our D will be on the field for 40 minutes per game. But mid-year they will be beat down.
If we get burned, fine, but more likely we get several more takeaways giving the O more scoring opportunities.
