Ronnie Lott Tackles The Bald Faced Truth
NFL Hall of Fame defensive back and Pac-12
Analyst Ronnie Lott
John Canzano on The Bald Faced Truth Friday afternoon to talk football
throughout the conference.
Lott, while breaking down Oregon's offensive scheme, dissected quarterback Marcus Mariota and his talent.
"He is a great athlete but he is a great player because he's smart," Lott said.
"...You see a guy like that and you realize that this guy can not only beat you because of his athletic skills, but he can also beat you because of the scheme."
Lott also spoke on the responsibilities of the Tennessee defensive backs heading into their matchup with Oregon, Saturday, September 14.
"You know that, as the safety and playing against that kind of offense, they're going to be very, very challenging. And the reason is...all of a sudden, you might and try to do more than you should."
Lott, one of the most feared defensive players in NFL history, was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2000.
He led the San Francisco 49ers to four Super Bowl titles spanning from 1981-1990.
