Some good quotes from the post game stuff...
"We're not the '85 Bears," Zimmer said. "But for the first time, it was OK. I thought we played fast."
"They were trying to spread everybody out and if you don't keep enough into block, we're going after it" (Dexter) Jackson said.
Zimmer, looking at the Packers' 47-percent success rate on third down (8-for-17), offered, "We've got to get better on third down, but we didn't have all our bullets, either."
"You've got to wrap up; NFL receivers are big," said White, who gave about 20 pounds to Jones. "It's not like college, where you pretty much hit a guy and he does down. I learned something from this game. That's the idea. Learn something every game."
It's obviously VERY unknown whether Zimmer's style will work here but I LOVE the idea behind it. When we put our corners 1 on 1 and can send blitzers it opens up chances for sacks and turnovers.
I also like the quote from Marvin White. Yes, he missed tackles but he was all over the field at least, we've had safties that wouldn't have even put themselves in the position to miss the tackle. The early one where he wiffed on Driver didn't bother me, that hit on Jones wasn't bad really... He was trying to knock the ball loose and given Deltha was right on him it would've seem that if he didn't bring him down Deltha would've.
We're going to see a completely different defense from Breshnahan's sit back 10 yards in coverage and send 4. No way to be certain it will work with this group but it's a VERY welcome change.
