Interested to see some thoughts on this topic. First I'd like to say that pickin up CTG as our DC has been a huge boost. Whether you like him or not he has done a much better job developing players and getting them into the right mindset being much more aggressive and physical than they were under CWM. No matter how they have played at times you know going in that we've had a decent plan and have been well prepared. I think at times we may have been too prepared like you saw against Neb resulting in the look that we may have been trying to do too much causing confusion bc we may be trying to do things that we didn't do as much of during the season as far as personnel packages. I know we do it during the season but the Neb game looked to a bigger extent. I compare it a little to the Boise game bc I felt like CMB had all that time in the summer to prepare and game plan and tendency can be to over coach or try to do some things to surprise a team and realistically you can get away from what you do best.
Now that I have rambled I wanna get to my main point. I wish CTG was a 4-3 guy. It seems like year in year out the state and country are just littered with DE's. A position that is not really in the 3-4. Yea you can take a typical DE and develop him into an OLB or DE (Really a DT) in a 34 but is that in their or our best interest. For example ray drew. Spent a year learning how to play OLB and know he is having to adjust back down to DT which is still not his true fit. We got a five star prospect who it's taking three years to get on the field. So there a chance he plays one year for us if he decides to go pro. Then you got true 43 ends like Carl Lawson and even clowney who may not fit into our defense as good as they do at auburn or s. car. I love Grantham and Bobo and Richt. I support them and stand behind them with whatever they choose to do. But hey this is a message board right. Just want to see what fellow dawgs, rusty, and gentry think about this question. Go dawgs
