By now you’ve likely heard of the sexy new 3-3-5 scheme Gunther Cunningham has concocted. Apparently, it uses Tank Tyler at defensive tackle, Brian Johnston and Jason Parker at defensive end, and Derrick Johnson and Pat Thomas at linebacker. What about Demorrio Williams, you ask? Ol’ Gun is essentially lining him up at Derrick Thomas‘ old falcon position, a hybrid DE/LB who’s sole purpose is to blitz off the edge and wreak havoc in the backfield.
Personally, I’m loving it. Our defensive ends struggled to rush the passer against the Bears’ weak O-line, and Demorrio has blazing speed. Maybe this is why he was inked in the first place? I also think we now have the defensive backs to do this after adding the Brandons (Carr and Flowers) and DaJuan Morgan.
What does everybody else think of Gunther’s new 3-3-5 defense?
