We're going to get defensive coordinator Perry Fewell on a conference call Thursday. But today he was on Sirius Radio, and he said there will be no more staff firings.
"I have a lot of confidence in the staff that’s presently here," Fewell said. "Both secondary coaches have a Super Bowl ring. One guy (Giunta) has two Super Bowl rings. Our linebackers coach is well known and an excellent linebackers coach. So we just want to fill that defensive line (coach) position with another knowledgeable person that can help us get over the top."
Fewell also said he likes to run a "flexible" defense, which probably means we'll see a mixture of Cover-2, blitzes, and man-to-man coverages. He does tend toward aggressiveness and emphasizes takeaways, as Buffalo's 28 interceptions this year indicate.
Right now, he's learning about the talent he'll have available.
"I have to find out what the talent level allows me to do," he said. "I think we take advantage of what our talent level does. And if it is more of an attacking style, blitz style of defense, that’s what we’ll do."
