Matt Bowen Has Good Things To Say About George Edwards

For several weeks, Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator George Edwards has received a lot of criticism from this fan base for the team's defensive shortcomings to date this year. Despite Buffalo's 4-2 record and the defense's propensity for making big plays, the unit still gives up more yards per game than just one other team - ironically, the New England Patriots.

Matt Bowen, a former Bills and Washington Redskins safety who now writes for the National Football Post, had some encouraging words about Edwards in breaking down this weekend's game for the Washington Examiner. (The whole piece is a must-read, by the way.)

"They don't have the big names and they might not have the best talent - I'd take Washington's secondary over them any day - but they can sit on some routes and [defensive coordinator] George Edwards has done a good job calling the game plan," opines Bowen. "I go back to that last interception they had against Michael Vick. They set a trap for an out route and pulled it off. They're doing creative things on defense. They have a lot of different looks and they want to disguise. It's an unappreciated defense; they have the ability to spin a game and cause big plays."

Four of Buffalo's six games this season have come against offenses currently ranked in the NFL's Top 12. That won't happen again until November 13, when they take on the Dallas Cowboys.
