Blaine Bishop Talks About Gregg Williams Joining the Titans Staff

Chris Graythen

Blaine Bishop knows a thing or two about what it takes to make a successful NFL defense. He loves the addition of Gregg Williams to the Titans staff.

Blaine Bishop had a lot of success playing for Gregg Williams (and Jerry Gray) when the franchise first came to Nashville. Blaine wrote a post for Titans Online yesterday about Gregg Williams joining the Titans staff. Here are some of the highlights of what he had to say:

I would encourage Gregg to be himself, which means bringing that same edge to the defense he did when the Titans had the NFL's top defense during the 2000 season.

(To steal from Kuharsky) To which I say: That is going to be the toughest thing for Williams early on. He was brought in here to bring an edge to the defense they were desperately lacking last season, but he will be walking a fine line after all of the things that have happened over the last few years.

Bishop went on to say:

Opponents will know if they don't bring their 'A' game, they're going to get beat. The defense will play with a purpose. That's the mentality Gregg is going to bring to the table.

To which I say: That will be a nice change from last season when I am not sure they even knew they were playing defense.

And finally:

You want a fundamentally sound, aggressive football team that will play smart, study film and play fast.

To which I say: Again, that would seem like a huge change from last season. Hopefully they will be able to accomplish that.
