After covering the offense last week, Flipmazzi turns his attention to the defense:
The craziness of Antonio Brown and the second episode of Hard Knocks
Why is Kaare Vedvik here?
We should be sick of all the regression talk circling Mike Zimmer’s defense. Youth is always where the Zim Reapers have found their edge. Anthony Barr, Xavier Rhodes, Danielle Hunter and Trae Waynes are great examples.
Anthony Harris arrived last year after glimpses of solid play in his four year career.
Stephen Weatherly gave Minnesota a needed lift in Everson Griffen’s absence.
Eric Wilson played in a bunch of games last year and the dropoff between him and Eric Kendricks is shrinking.
Mackensie Alexander, a lot of people gave up on him, but now he solidifies the cornerback group.
Zimmer’s staff develops these guys again and again and again. And if you want to bet against the unproven youth in 2019, have fun!
