Spielman: Coach Childress and our defensive staff wanted a fast flowing, attack style scheme on defense. We had some very good defensive players on the roster but they had to lose weight to play effectively in this scheme. Linebackers are required to run, hit and have good range. Because we have athletic linebackers, having them come in this preseason at their required weights has helped as far as being able to fit into this system.

And you have it! I see it improving week after week with more turnovers, fewer penalties & greater pressure on the QB.
