The Defense of Justin Schultz

1

"We don't want to take any of [Justin Schultz's] skills away from him, and he's starting to buy in to recognizing danger a little bit, and trying to play a little bit more defensive. But when we got down in that game, that's when you've got to let him loose."

That's Dallas Eakins responding to a question about Justin Schultz after last night's game. The question framed Schultz's play positively. Eakins both agreed with the positive and acknowledged some of the learning that the coaching staff is asking Schultz to do. It will be interesting to see how Schultz's decision-making and defensive play improve throughout the season.
