These are the kind of players I love. One thing I've noticed with Bradley is these guys are coming in a wave to the ball. You rarely saw that last year. They are swarming ball carriers and playing with high effort.

For Solly... I hope he keeps it going. He's a great person that you like to root for finding a home with the Raiders. You love to see it.

Yes, I’ve mentioned this when watching with friends. This defense is swarming and there’s usually 3-4 guys at the ball. This how we get balls loose, or don’t give up an extra yard or 5 to give up easy first downs. Bradley is definitely getting the most out these guys. Great to see.

Nice to have a DC with a vision. First time we can feel confident with a DC identifying and adding players to his scheme. Will be fun to watch develop over the next few years. 

If they find a war daddy on the iDline to push the pocket, the fun will really begin. QBs are still able to step up a good deal to avoid that edge pressure.

Isn't it nice to have a defensive coordinator that we knew about before he got here?

I feel like the interior has been getting a lot of pressure to push the pocket. I felt like in the Dolphins game the reason why there wasn't crazy sack production is because the dolphins were holding the entire game and I don't even think I saw one holding call except for on like one running play I think.  Right now I think Solomon Thomas is leading the team in sacks and third in pressures(not to mention Quinton Jefferson and Darius philon) so there's a push.

Sorry if this was posted but I love it innovative from the supposed “Dinosaur “ Keep it up coach 

I think I remember someone saying last week around this time Gruden is only doing this because he can’t run the ball. Except for the part where we did run the ball this week
