Defense Giving Cardinals MuchNeeded Earned Respect By WALTER BERRY AP Writer TEMPE A shift to the back er defense has brought the Phoe nix Cardinals back to NFL respectability Phoenix ranked 24th in overall defense two weeks ago changed from a 43 to a 34 alignment and held Dallas to a franchiselow 100 total yards in a 203 victory here Oct 14 Last Sunday the Cardinals bot tled up the NFC Eastleading New York Giants for 55 minutes before losing 2019 on Matt Bahrs 40 yard field goal on the games last play Giants coach Bill Parcells said Phoenix is starting to play the smashmouth brand of football the NFC is known for Thats the main Cardi nals coach Joe Bugel said Were trying to build an identity here Fans expect hardnosed football out of our division and were try ing to win some over Were play ing very very hard and our de fense is playing at a tremendously high level right Phoenix was outscored 8030 in its first three games including 527 in the second halves of two games and took a 13 record into its Oct 7 open date Bugel hired Feb 6 as the teams fourth head coach since 1585 gathered his staff in a meet Cougars ing room and decided to retool the defense We knew we had to do some thing different and be a better rush Bugel said We werent the type of team that can sit there and take people on Were a small defensive team by NFL standards and every week were going to be facing jumbo of fensive lines The only way you can be successful is to be relent less and have 11 people going for the ball We needed this infusion We dont call it a 34 We call it a backer defense Its not really a 34 because we dont play a nlose guard This stems off our 43 and we still use a lot of stuff from bur 43 But this allows us to get an extra linebacker in there more playmakers on the field The biggest beneficiary of the move is linebacker Ken Harvey who has a teamleading 59 tackles including 21 in the last two games In the new defense Harvey lines up like a defensive end and rushes the quarterback on almost every down like the Giants All Pro Lawrence Taylor Its what I did in said Harvey the Cardinals No 1 draft pick in 1988 Rushing the passer is one of my strengths This gives me an opportunity to do more and do what I Harvey had nine tackles three assists forced a fumble and had three of Phoenixs five sacks against the Giants Kens really starting to sur face Bugel said Weve fi nally got the people in the right places and theyre responding like Harvey and Eric Hill and Garth Jax at linebacker and the guys on the line like Jim Wahler Rod Saddler and Freddie Joe Nunn Theyre playing like men Hill a No 1 pick in 1989 has 16 tackles in the last two games while Jax got the first interception of his fiveyear career against the Cowboys Nunn has 2Va of his teamlead ing 4 sacks in the past two weeks while Wahler has seven tackles and sacks and Saddler seven tackles one sack and a fumble recovery I love this new defense It frees us up We dont have as much thinking to Wahler said The old way we had to play ev erybody headon and read the play before reacting Now were making things Despite last weeks loss Bugel said the Cardinals will stick with the scheme and hes anxious to see how it works Sunday against the Chicago Bears Itll be another one of those slugfests but weve proved we can go toetotoe Buge said Continued from page 8a lettermen The others are two way lineman
