The unnamed coordinator received an unexpected defense from a Hall of Fame quarterback. Rams icon Kurt Warner said that critics may have taken the coach’s words out of context. He said that he didn’t mean to instigate offseason drama but was giving an insight into the defensive analysis (via New York Post).
“What I believe that coordinator was saying was we’ve got to figure out how do we stop Patrick Mahomes,” Warner explained. “So how we stop him is we try to take the first or the early reads away, and we try to force him to get away from the context and force him to try to make some of those special plays.”
