He has them flying around on every down, six and seven guys hitting you, not taking a play off. And they don't just want to hit you; they want to hurt you. Every time a ballcarrier breaks the line of scrimmage, you see everyone releasing, hunting him down. We looked for a long time trying to find weaknesses, but couldn't. We went all the way back to the 1999 opener against St. Louis—nothing.
