It takes a big, strong guy to play on defense.
However, you need more than brawn. You need intelligence.
You can’t let that offense run wild on game day.
Make them use their three downs, and they have to punt away.
As a defensive lineman, your sights are on the quarterback.
Penetrate that backfield, and throw him for a loss with a sack.
That gives your own offense the chance to win the game.
Play at all-star caliber, and you can make yourself a name.
