pleased with effort at practice

The new system is night-and-day from how the Bulldogs played last year, and while things are simplified, there’s still a process of breaking the players of habits formed from reading blocks before attacking upfield.

“The jury is still out on that,” Wilson said of the learning curve. “I’ve been in this style of defense for almost 10-15 years and what we’re trying to do in retrospect is take away decision making by letting you attack. When you do (make decisions), you’re doing it on the run. It’ll take all 12 days for them to feel comfortable of working through and working around them.”
