but we're getting off task. EVERY TEAM beats that cover 2 shit nowadays. you have receivers that can go deep, its easily beatable.

okay sunshine. did you really think [He Who Shall Not Be Named] hasn't let us down the last few games (aka this season)? did you really expect him to start winning all of a sudden?

Re: Does Campbell end the 'Cover 2' excuse?

understood. so did you think the D was going to magically improve then? what was the point of waiting for either of these two things to magically improve?

The defense has very little to do with the fact that the offense put up three points last week, and Brunell has plenty to do with that.

Re: Does Campbell end the 'Cover 2' excuse?

and we all hoped we were wrong about no.8.. aside from the second game vs. Dallas, we weren't.

he probably threw his arm out.

oh its not, but it definitely WAS a glaring problem. WLB is another problem right now. our front four is playing decent football. its what happens after an RB gets past them.

I must admit I admire your faith in Brunell because I had it at one time too, but I guess all of us know what happened to it.

With JC taking the reins should we see more of those throws against that coverage?
That dump off crap is a bunch of bullshit. Not to be too technical but with this type of covergae you can throw deep curl routes and deep dig or crossing routes in the 15-25 yard range. But you MUST have a TE who can run right down the middle in between the safties. The TE will occupy the middle backer and one of the safties 9-10 times. As long as your TE can get off the line and get in the 2ndary quickly, then the deep crossing and curl routes open up underneath the TE running down the field. This is why KC had a strong passing game with average WR's. The TE makes it all go against this type of coverage. I use to play HS football and most of the defenses we played used this type of covergae.

Re: Does Campbell end the 'Cover 2' excuse?


Sunday is so far away!!!!

I was just thinking about this on the way home today. I've always thought before a game, If I'm a defensive co-ordinator, how can I beat the redskins. When Brunell was in the game, you think ... well shoot... we'll make him beat us if he can. Put pressure on him, and then key the dump off.

Now with Campbell in, you've got to think they'll take a similar strategy. Pressure the QB, force the dump off, and key that guy. Letting the underneath stuff slide, and cover tight mid-range. The only problem is... suppose Campbell takes the heat well, or our o-line plays inspired.

Campbell will be able to launch the ball over the safeties. With our speedy WR's it could be deadly.

All of this is pure speculation, and I can only assume Saunders will come out firing. Campbell may be confused by some defenses, throw a few picks, but ultimatly I'm thinking Saunders wants to take shots downfield.
If we lose, I'm expecting to lose Brett Favre style, and partially cut out this conservative nonsense for a game. It'll be exciting, that you can count on.

Godspeed JC.

While this is true.... a 15-25 yd dig is one of the longest plays to develop. Curls work, and we do tend to use them as well, but with the corners easing back in the flats, it gets dangerous when you've got a noodle arm at QB. So therefore, CB's anticipate the flat pass, and jump the hell out of it. That's basically what our offense couldn't overcome.

The route that beats the cover 2, is the WR post & a TE skinny post. Both great plays for a QB who can place a ball well (and is tall enough to see the field). We'll see what happends. I'm excited.

The Colts had no problem lighting up the Cover 2 on a regular basis. The middle of the field is nice and vulnerable.
