As head coach, Mora's fingerprints will be all over the defense. "I intend to be very, very involved with the defense," he said. "It's my passion. It's what I love to do. It's something I believe I'm pretty good at." But it's more than just his voice that will be heard. "I've hired a tremendous defensive staff," Mora said. "We've added some outstanding coaches who have a very similar philosophy to me in terms of how you become a great defensive football team." And for the past few weeks, the staff has begun drawing up a blueprint for that defense, starting with the ground floor of the playbook. "We're starting to put the book together from the very basics," Lewis said. "It's kind of amazing, but it's very good. It's refreshing." They've sat around a table, discussing ideas and concepts with Mora and Bradley both moderating and making sure everyone has a chance to offer input. "We're sitting around a table like this; nothing gets typed or written really until everybody has a say-so," Lewis said. "It's really dynamic. It gives me a chill."
