Mike Pettine has been an extremely effective defensive coordinator throughout his career. With the Jets from 2009 to 2012, his Jets defenses ranked first, third, fifth and eighth. In 2013 as the Bills' defensive coordinator his unit ranked 10th.

Pettine's scheme relies heavily on press man cornerbacks and myriad blitzes. I believe, like the article below, the last two off-season have given him the players to deliver.

The Green Bay Packers never lost a football game.
They just ran out of time.
