Coming out of the opener it looks like the bounce back year for Preston Brown is already underway.
The team’s mike linebacker took charge of the defense in the opener and performed admirably not only as a linebacker, but as the quarterback of the defense.
That according to head coach Rex Ryan, who was very pleased with Brown’s calls and his play.
“He did fantastic,” said Ryan. “He runs the whole show so he is literally the captain of the ship back there and he has taken to that role and you combine that with a guy who has a lot of physical talent that’s the guy we want running that defense.”
Brown is determined to make sure their defense is better than the defensive unit of the team they’re facing. He said that wasn’t the case last week. But he believes as long as all 11 guys understand the scheme they’ll continue to improve and succeed.
“The biggest thing is guys know what they’re doing,” said Brown. “I took the leadership role to make sure guys know what to do and communicate so it goes across the board. It’s been great to see.”
