Jack Del Rio Thread

In 2002, Jack Del Rio took over the league’s worst defense in Carolina and turned it into the NFL’s second-ranked unit; in 2012 he took Broncos from 20th-ranked defense to second.” - Adam Schefter

As a defensive coordinator, Jack Del Rios’ defenses finished : 2nd,2nd,3rd and 19th.

Re: Jack Del Rio Thread

Brought over from the other thread. Jack Del Rio resume:

- in 2002, joins Carolina Panthers as defensive coordinator, defense finishes ranked 2nd in yards allowed, compared to 31st in the year before. (overlaps with current Panthers GM Marty Hurney that year, who took over as GM of the Panthers in 2002 as his first GM job)

- in 2003 becomes the head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars. Defense finishes 6th in yards allowed, compared to 20th in the year before.

- in 2012 becomes the defensive coordinator of the Denver Broncos, they finish 2nd in yards allowed, compared to 20th the year before.

There were of course other stops in there. But like Rivera, a clear track record of immediate defensive improvement in the first year.

Worth noting of course that in 2015 Wade Phillips replaced him as defensive coordinator and put together an all time defense. A lot of Broncos fans would say Del Rio's defenses were not aggressive enough - too bland - rushing 4 and not blitzing enough.

If Chase Young is a part of the front 4, I don't think we'll have to blitz much. Regardless, this is leaps and bounds beyond Greg Manusky. HTTR

Great hire IMO, I love what this team is doing right now. You can't ask for a better set up as a fan. Proven winning culture from the HC/DC and you keep a young talented Offensive mind in place.

Re: Jack Del Rio Thread

Big fan of his since he was a LB at USC where he was a maniac.

Thanks for sharing the details, I wasn't sure about this move but now with the info, it doesn't look like a bad move at all.

Re: Jack Del Rio Thread

It'll be a 4-3 defense is Del Rio goes off his coaching record. Which IMO really doesn't make a huge difference , we will have the DL to get pressure though

Agree, he had some iffy defense his last stop raiders and I had heard he wasn’t aggressive (more bend don’t break). But I’m excited by the news...seems like he is a baller DC....finally have a solid pedigree at DC

Re: Jack Del Rio Thread

He and Rivera are both a rush four, blitz less type defense. It works when you have the horses up front. Ioannidis, Allen, Payne, Kerrigan, Sweat, Chase Young (plz). Quite a rotation along the front four. Settle and Payne anchor your goalline package when a run stop is needed. And you have a lot of options to go with a NASCAR pass rush on known passing situations.

Will be interesting to see where Ryan Anderson fits. He's the tweener in this setup.

Best news of all: no more dropping Sweat and Kerrigan into coverage.

Jack Del Rio Thread

This is a GREAT hire! He has taken mediocre defenses and made them into top 5 or even top 2or 3 rated very quickly. He is a disciplinarian and specializes against the run - which we need in the NFC East!

This unit has a lot of good players but has been poorly coached for years now. Gone will be the vanilla and predictable schemes of Manusky! We’ll see a lot of energized blitzes and many more sacks.

I am drooling thinking of what Jack could do with Chase Young!! We will have an elite front 4 I predict the next season.

I think the biggest criticism of Manusky has been his defenses have been the opposite of vanilla, they have been so exotic the CB's and LB's were confused and thinking too much.

I also have read what all the other posters have, that he doesn't blitz much at all.

Re: Jack Del Rio Thread

I'd suggest a 4-3 predicated on stopping the run is our priority, given 2 of the best RBs are in our division, and being able to bring pressure with the front 4 and moderate blitzing (thus keeping LBs in position to play run or pass better) suits us. What we need is an O that keeps the D off the filed foo much, keeping them fresh. Hopefully fixing the OL and passing game in general sorts that out.

I enjoy hitting as much as the next guy, used to love those bone-shaking hits Sean Taylor laid out back in the day. But this ain't Sean Taylor's NFL anymore, even big hits where the defender leads with the shoulder are getting penalized. I think the NFL is trying to regulate big hits out of the game.
