Did anyone else pick up in the interview with captain Kirk on raiders.com where he is answering questions from fans (if i havent referenced this properly can a mod please fix):
Q: What changes have you made mentally and physically for this upcoming season? – Heriberto Ayala (Anderson, CA)
Kirk Morrison: Mentally, with a new coordinator, I have been trying to learn the terminologies and memorizing the playbook. In past years we have had the same playbook but this year it is an entire new playbook. From a physical standpoint I feel that I am a lot stronger than I have ever been.
This goes against what Cable has said about the defence being fundementally the same as it has been over the past few years, I have had a feeling that what Cable has said about the D has been smoke and mirrors.
A COMPLETELY NEW DEFENSIVE PLAYBOOK PEOPLE!!!!!!
Also on the D being more aggressive this year:
Q: What are your thoughts on the upcoming season and if we’ll see more aggressive blitzing from the defense? – Leo Gomez (Sultana, CA)
Kirk Morrison: Right now that’s what the plan is, to get the ball out of the QB’s hands as fast a possible. It’s going to be a little different this year than years past and I am excited.
I struggle to find anyway that this offseason could have possibly gone any better than it has, i know that doesnt win games but with Coach Cable we are definately on the right track.
