And if this is the case, it could really change the value of a NT in the defense.

IMO Redskins played single gap out of necessity. We did not have strong enough DL that could play 2 gap successfully. We could not play 2 gap last year.
We went into last season with one of the worst interior D-lines ever.
We came out of training camp with freaking Kedric Goldston at 301 pounds as our starting NT. I knew that day we were not making the playoffs.

Re: New Look Defense

I don't want to see Allen playing 2 gaps in base defense.
His strength is in getting up field let the 2 other schlubs in the the base 34 2 gap.

But IF they use a 2 gap in base thankfully base defense is only played about 30 maybe 40% of the time anyway.

But I also got the feeling that we didn't have explosive enough DLs to play a 1 gap system efficiently... It was my understanding that was one reason we got exposed that much against the run.

The Redskins allowed opponents to convert 46.6% of 3rd downs, the worst rate in the league in 2016

Need to vastly improve in the nickel
