The Cover 2... Part Deux-- A Question
Anyone else notice that when opposing receivers catch passes against our D, they are usually WIDE open?
I know about the BEND, DON'T BREAK mentality, but... uh... offenses are picking us apart and scoring A LOT of points against us. More often than not, we are 5-10 yards away from an opposing receiver when he catches the ball. NOT GOOD.
Here's the question: Do we run the Cover-2 100% of the time? Or nearly that? I know Lovie is stubborn as hell about staying with the Cover-2. It's an old scheme that everyone knows how to pick apart.
When our offense can't put 38 points on the board against GB or a playoff team.... our porous D will be the end of us. I'm not a Defensive Coordinator, but why can't we mix in other schemes along with the Cover 2 in the same game?
I think that Lovie's stubbornness here will really cost this team in the playoffs (and maybe even against GB next week).
What do you guys think?
