From what I have read as well as seen, Mike Nolan's scheme turned the Denver defense around last year shooting them up the rankings from 20+ overall to 12 I believe. But I have also hear a lot of talk that state Nolan's defense kinda regressed the 2nd half of the season. Most say this is due to the fact that offenses began to figure out what Nolan was doing in certain situations and down and distances throughout the course of the year. My question to you guys (those of you that know more on defensive scheming) is do you think that will happen again with the Dolphins this year? If so, why doesn't Nolan change it up or readjust to the offenses during the 2nd half of the year, or whenever it is that they begin to figure out what the defense is doing? Also, I know we can all agree to hate the Jets and probably even Rex Ryan, but we must give him credit where its due. His defense was the best in the league last year, and has been among the best defenses in the league when he was with the Ravens. My question is, why can't these great defensive minds, like Mike Nolan, study these elite defenses and sort of try and mimic or fuse the scheme with their own knowing that its a proven system? This is obviously assuming they don't do that of course. Any knowledgeable people's opinion on the subject will be greatly appreciated.
