“I feel like we need to definitely take over the line of scrimmage,” Timmons said. “That’s what the D-line and linebackers and guys like myself [have to do]– also, get turnovers. I feel like it we get turnovers, that’ll be a big change in the game. I feel like we do those things, and give our offense a short field, it would be tremendous for us.”
He said that the young guys on defense have done a good job of adjusting and becoming an asset for the unit.READ MORE: Frick Park Bridge Collapse: 10 People Injured, 4 Sent To Hospital
“Actually, it’s going well,” Timmons said. “Our young guys are picking up the scheme well. They’re actually making more plays- you see guys like Sean Spence coming in and making a lot of plays for us. The guys are being like sponges. I’m doing a good job of talking to them, letting them know what they have to do, and they just go out there and react like myself and play ball.”
