Dolphins | Mike Nolan wants attacking defense

Miami Dolphins defensive coordinator Mike Nolan said he wants his unit to have an aggressive mentality this upcoming season, according to Jeff Darlington, of the Miami Herald. "I would like to think we're offensive - not defensive,'' Nolan said. Nolan doesn't want his players protecting their end of the football field, which requires a defensive mentality. He wants big plays and suffocating pressure from all areas of the field. "On defense, when Mike talks about being offensive, he talks about setting the pace and dictating to the offense more as opposed to the other way around,'' head coach Tony Sparano said. "So becoming offensive on defense is something that our kids are learning right now."
