Can’t just learn your position anymore, you have to understand the whole defense and what everyone is doing.
“We’re being asked to learn more with the new defense,” Moore said. “Last year we focused on learning our positions and knowing our jobs. This year it’s know your job and everybody else’s job. That’s a really big change.”
He said that as all of the defensive players grasp the entire defensive concept, he thinks it will actually making doing each job easier.
“You’ve got to be assignment-sound,” Moore said. “The goal is to know what everyone around you is doing to make your job easier. If you think of it that way, it becomes easier. It’s like investing your money now so you become rich later. It’s a different way of thinking.”
