Quotes

#Quote
1On Coach Don Coryell: Air Coryell forced changes in defensive alignments throughout the NFL with defenders coming or going out in passing situations. They started substituting nickel and dime backs, situational pass rushers, faster defense linemen, taking out safeties that couldn't run and putting in an extra corner. No question, Don profoundly affected both sides of the ball.
