Nothing personal, but obviously, before with Al -- rest in peace -- he had his hands in all the defense," Huff told the Bay Area News Group this week. "He had all his little things he liked to do. Now with D.A. (head coach Dennis Allen) out there, we've got all kinds of blitzes, we've got 3-4, 4-3 fronts, just a lot of variety and different things going on. So I'm going to love it."

Davis' hands-on approach isn't exactly a juicy secret out of Oakland, but it is interesting to hear Huff's excitement to work under Allen and defensive coordinator Jason Tarver. Huff bemoaned Oakland's past defensive schemes as vanilla.

"Everybody knew," Huff said. "I'm in the middle of the field. I'm in the post, we're pretty much man-to-man on the outside. It was pretty simple. We really didn't blitz much. We let our front four get after them. That's how it was, so we dealt with it."
