Burke is from the Jim Schwartz coaching tree which means that he likes to use the front 4 to put pressure on the quarterback and strangle the quarterback's options with very tight coverage downfield. If you like the blitz, you aren't going to be too thrilled with his schemes, but we saw him dial the blitz last year because our front four did not do a good job ... and that's having Suh and Wake.
Is Burke another Schwartz? Well, so far the answer is "no" because Schwartz took the #30th ranked Eagles defense in 2015 and made them one of the best last year. Burke has only had one year on the job, so, we'll have to see what he can do with another year. He was clearly an upgrade over Vance Joseph.
