I cannot express how excited I am about our defense over the coming years.
Lynch today looked freaking awesome. Yes, it was super obvious. But yes, it’s very exciting. He’s not even sure where to be – but the athleticism and instincts, and raw talent are all, very clearly, there.
And then you have the myth, the man, the Legend Louis Nix III. LNIII is UNSTOPPABLE. While his presence wasn’t as obvious as Lynch’s in the stats line, he MOVED the OL backward. He was often forcing QBs into quick/early/suboptimal decisions, because he was simply forcing the entire OL to collapse early. THE MAN IS A BEAST.
Add in Stephon Tuitt, another huge athlete and this will be a really, really fun unit to watch over the next 3-4 years. It is going to be a thing of beauty.
Lots of other thoughts on BG, but this was easily my favorite part. Opposing QBs, you best be shaking in your boots. You’re gonna get hit. Opposing DC’s, you better have a scheme ready, because you can’t double both of these guys. You’re gonna get beat. Opposing Olinemen? I just feel bad for you. WE GONNA BE BEAST.
