From Coach Mora
I believe in attacking and being aggressive, and playing with a bit of a stinger. That’s what we’re going to do. Attacking doesn’t always mean blitzing. It doesn’t always mean sending extra guys. It’s a style. It’s an attitude. It’s an emphasis. It’s a passion. And it is also, at times, bringing extra people to affect the quarterback.
While I’ve learned great lessons from Mike that I’ll apply as I move forward, I think the important thing is that I’m true to my core values. My beliefs, and my passions. And that’s what I intend to do.
Our defense is going to play on their toes. They’re going to play in your face. They’re going to play with energy. They’re going to play with passion. They’re going to play with relentless effort. They’re going to be situationally smart. They’re going to make you proud. They’re going to make our fans proud.
I’m a silver-lining guy by nature.
I've thought to myself how lucky I was to make the decision not to move immediately to a head-coaching position when I was released at Atlanta because I think all the lessons that I've learned have now had a chance to absorb.
"One of the things I really admired about Mike Holmgren as a football coach — besides the X's and O's — was the way he could be a caring and compassionate head football coach with the players, and yet still remain very much a figure of authority."
