Davis to be More Aggressive w/ Cardinals Defense?

It looks as if new Cards D-coordinator Bill Davis may employ more blitzing in his new defense. Today’s Arizona Republic reports on Davis and what he is doing so far in practices:

Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt would prefer an attacking, blitzing defense on the order of the Steelers, his old team. Whisenhunt, however, isn’t ready to say he wants Davis to adopt the playbook of Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau, whom Whisenhunt admires. Davis isn’t willing to slap a nameplate on this defense just yet, either.

His staff’s goal in the off-season was to expand the playbook, evaluate how the players handled it, then trim away what didn’t work. That job remains incomplete. The main goal in 2009 is to keep the other team from scoring, said Davis, who wasn’t being flip. The Cardinals finished 28th in points allowed last season.
