That is correct!!
That's why you didn't hear much from J Smith or Ray Mac, they were mostly play DT eating up space, consuming blockers. That's the beauty of this defense, they can play 3-4, 4-3, 3,2, 4,1, cover 2, cover 3, man over.... great team concepts.
Fangio is brilliant, he mixed up the looks and coverages masterfully. The only big play the D gave up was a busted play from Rodgers to Jones for 49. Other than that, the D was terrific.
People around the country are starting to notice Fangio's crew.
