As a defensive coordinator, which would you prefer:

Option A:

Your defense will be on the field for 69 plays per game, but will have 33.6 minutes on the field to handle those 69 plays, a total of approx 29 second per play. That gives you enough time on most plays to substitute where needed and rotate in fresh bodies.

Option B:

Your defense will be on the field for 70 plays a game, but will have 26.4 minutes on the field to handle those 70 plays, a total of approx 22 seconds per play. On most plays, you will not have enough time to substitute and will have to go with your base personnel most plays.

Pick your poison novice defensive coordinators! A or B

Option A without a doubt.

My scheme, adjustments, specialist personnel, and depth are thrown out the window w option B.

........

That's why I love Kendricks and Alonso (assuming he's as advertised). They allow me to play multiple looks with base personnel. If I can 2 man zone a slot receiver w Kendricks and a safety rather than bring in a nickel back, I'm good with that. MK and Alonso run like DBs. That's a huge luxury.

I'd rather our offense move the chains consistently. Then I wouldn't worry about anything else TOP related.

I agree 100%.

That is why all this TOP talk is bullshit.

The defenses that are playing against us are a lot more gassed and stressed than our defense playing against them, pussy excuses from Sconces aside. In order to expose opposing defenses to that stress, we have to submit our defense to a lesser stressful situation. I'd take that trade.

This is a no brainer to me.

As our defense improves, they will have the ability to get the hell off the field on 3rd and 10 and the amount of time they spend on the field will decrease.
