yep. the rub is that i really think improvement as a team defender comes only from playing in schemes in game action. yeah, there's film study and drills in practice, but you have to see the speed and encounter unanticipated sets and highly motivated opponents, which only happens in real games. thus, you have to be able to play through some mistakes. with 4 or 5 veterans that don't make many mistakes on that end waiting to play, how much leeway does THT get from the coaching staff?
