Cowboys defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli was defensive - zhangzk - 10-06-2019

Tampa Bay while Barry Sanders was in Detroit , and Marinelli found out the hard way how hard stopping Sanders can be. Now Marinelli has similar concerns about Giants running back Saquon Barkley heading into their meeting on Sunday.“It’s like Barry Sanders,” Marinelli said of Barkley, via the . “You may have a lot of plays where you keep him to a minimum, five-yards here and then [he] has the ability to break the long one. And you got to be on top of it, detailed the entire game. You got to be disciplined. Guys got to do their job before they release blocks.”Marinelli knows all about Sanders’ ability to break the long one. In a 1997 game when Marinelli coached against Sanders, Sanders had an 80-yard touchdown run in the first quarter and an 82-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. That’s the only game in NFL history when a player had two runs of 80 yards or longer.That’s the kind of big-play ability Marinelli sees in Barkley as well.“He’s got great vision but the decisiveness Garrett Bradbury Jersey , when it’s there for him to take it, in space, he’s always tough. He’s been tough all [last] year in space. So you got to really work as a defense,” Marinelli said.Marinelli hopes Barkley doesn’t look too much like Sanders on Sunday. One of the storylines for this weekend’s game between the Patriots and the Titans will be cornerback Malcolm Butler facing the Patriots for the first time since leaving for Tennessee as a free agent.Butler didn’t play at all on defense in his last game with the Patriots and thoughts of his Super Bowl benching were hard to avoid during Titans coach Mike Vrabel‘s press conference on Tuesday. Butler has struggled this season and got beaten badly by Amari Cooper and Allen Hurns for touchdowns on Monday night, which meant Vrabel was fielding questions about whether Butler would be pulled from the lineup.Vrabel said that he would not be demoting Butler, saying that Butler has issues with his technique that have to be corrected and that the team will work to make that happen.“When you play man coverage Noah Fant Jersey , you have to look at your man,” Vrabel said, via Paul Kuharsky of “Malcolm knows that and we talk about that, continue to practice it, continue to coach it and try to show it to him. When he does that, it’s pretty good. It’s competitive , he challenges the receivers. When you look back at the quarterback, your man has a tendency to move in another direction.”Among the questions Vrabel was asked was whether LeShaun Sims deserved a look at corner in place of Butler. Vrabel said he didn’t think that was the case because “he’s not as good as Malcolm” in the way he practices.
