  1. Cover 2 - Yes or No

    What are everyone's thoughts on our cover 2 defence .... It seems a lot of teams using it are having problems as well. It was all the rage but the teams that can play agressive man up seem to be doing better. Wondering what the rest of you think??

    When you do not have the proper athletes (not as good) you go Zone.
    When you have good DB's you go man.

    I like the cover 2.

    I just think we need to play to our strengths and not pretend we have softies at corner. Play the press, and our problems are solved.

    Jamming at the line disrupts the timing between QB and receiver, time is a QB's enemy and friend, but against a defensive line like ours, it's an enemy. Give Allen, KWill, or Ray Edwards an extra split second, and that QB will be eating dirt.

    The defense really works off of each other, coverage assists the pass rush, the pass rush assists coverage.


    So, press coverage on defense, play-action on offense. Play to our players strengths... do it Childress. Listen to me.

    So the vikings, colts, bucs, bears draft bad CBs to fit their zone schemes? Or they all misuse their good CBs in weaker zone schemes?

    Have to agree with you completely ... that little disruption to the opposing QB's timing would make our D much more effective. Our D line would get there and it might cause some rushed errant throws. Often wondered why we don't press more often.... things that make you go hmmmmm.....

    Dislike it.


    We've always criticized our pass rush but I don't think that is our problem.
    We make it easy for a QB to process through his reads.
    Hardly any pressure at all on receivers to get open against us.
    Often all our pass rushers would need is a second more of more time.
    Instead we give players 10 yard cushions.

    I would like to see us play a little man coverage with cover 2 behind it...meaning...have Winny and Griff play man and keep Sharper and Williams/Johnson in the cover 2 shell behind them to stop the big play if Whinny or Griff were to get beat.

    Did I say anything about players being bad?

    The Bears do run Man coverage when all their players are healthy.

    Linebackers are very important in the cover two.

  10. Re: Cover 2 - Yes or No

    Well, look at the Bucs right now.
    They seem to be doing just fine, despite a fairly "meh" pass rush.
    They tore apart Seattle by using creative blitz calls, sending corners and safeties in and generally disrupting Seattle.
