New Texans DC Anthony Weaver is bringing a level of excitement to the defense, and I've been trying to find out what he can change schematically. In part 1 of this series, I looked at what Weaver could take from mentor Rex Ryan. I focused on the strengths of the 4-3 Under, and 46 Bear defense, and looked at how it fit the Texans personnel. If you haven't checked out part 1, here is the link: https://texansunfiltered.com/articles/how-anthony-weaver-can-change-the-texans-defense-pt1
In part 2 I dive into the exotic blitz packages that Rex Ryan installed, and see how Weaver can use those same blitzes but with the Texans. Last week I wrote an article about the Texans 3rd down and long defense, and how it was MUCH better when we rushed more than 4 defenders (shocker). If Weaver can successfully employ some of these blitz packages, our defense will be much better as a result.
