Vance Joseph wants to re-prove himself in Arizona

Vance Joseph wants to re-prove himself in Arizona

There were plenty of groans on Sunday night when the expected Super Bowl shootout between the Patriots and Rams never materialized.

Vance Joseph, meanwhile, grinned like a Cheshire cat.

a€œ(It was fun) to watch an old school football game where defense does matter,a€ the Cardinals new defensive coordinator said Thursday on the "Big Red Rage" radio show. a€œDefense is always going to matter. It doesna€™t matter how many points you score -- eventually, youa€™re going to have to play dominant defense to win the championship, and that proved it last Sunday. To watch a 13-3 game, I was in hog heaven.a€

The Cardinals have hired an innovative offensive mind to lead their team, and Kliff Kingsburya€™s ability to breathe life into last yeara€™s dormant offense will help tell the story of 2019.

But Joseph -- who was fired as head coach of the Broncos in late December a€“ will also play a critical role as he accepts the tough task of slowing down all the potent offenses that have popped up in the NFL.

a€œTo watch a record number of points being scored all year, offenses cana€™t be stopped a€“ I think thata€™s not football,a€ Joseph said. a€œI think the best teams do win, and the best teams have offense, defense and special teams. Ia€™m all in to that. Ia€™m all about team football.a€

The Cardinals are switching back to a 3-4 defense, which will feature press coverage and regular blitzes, Joseph said. Ita€™s the type of style in which the Cardinals found success prior to 2018, and one in which cornerback Patrick Peterson and outside linebacker Chandler Jones have been vocal proponents.
