Defensive coordinator Mike Pettine has a defensive scheme that acts a lot like a chameleon, constantly changing it’s pre-snap appearance. We examined if the new scheme will make the Bills unit one of the league leaders in sacks in our Top 25 questions until camp countdown. Bills veteran DT Kyle Williams is perfectly fine with the nenw approach, knowing the perennial All-Pro quarterback in their division feasts on defenses that don’t change things up.
“I think they make things confusing,” said Williams of Pettine and his staff. “We can show blitz and get out of blitz, they can blitz outside, inside. There’s just a lot of different things that we do it out of and we do it out of multiple personnel, multiple formations.
“We can show a base look and you can blitz everybody out of it or you can bring one. There are just a lot of different ways that they can do things and with us playing Tom Brady twice a year you have to do different things to him. If you’re going to get in your defense and this is what we’re going to stay in and we’re going to play it well. No matter how well you play he’s eventually going to figure out how to spin the top on you. That’s one of the great things we’re doing now.”
Williams admits the new scheme has been a shot in the arm for the guys on his side of the ball.
“I think it’s exciting,” he said. “Anytime you have something new that you haven’t done before. Obviously it’s no secret. We haven’t had much success. At the end of the year I said, ‘I just want to win.’ You only get so long to play this game and I’ve been around for a little while. So I’m down for anything. I’m going to be me and give it everything I’ve got. I’m excited about it.”
