    Re: Do we really run a "west coast offense" and a "Cover 2" ??

    I agree.
    Question(s) is/are.....

    a.
    Will our young crop of DE's (Robison/Edwards) increase thier sack totals/QB pressures from what they did last year.
    (I think the will by the way).
    b.
    Will Winny stay healthy this year for a full season.
    c.
    Will Griff/Gordon/McCauley put up better numbers than they did last year. (I think they will).
    d.
    Will the changes/additions at DT get more pressure up the middle/collapsing the pocket which will flush the QB?
    (I'm still hesitant on this one but will be abit optimistic).


    Gimme (a) and (c) with (b) and I think we will see an improvement.
    Gimme all 4 and we will be a force.
    That's why we draft Pat Sims in the 2nd. With him and Kevin next to each other they would bring a consistant push up the middle. Truth be told...with all the speculation of who we will draft this year, Sims is the only guy I feel we MUST get. We may need to move up the 2nd to ensure we land him.

    everybody runs their own versions of these things..the only true WCO and cover 2 were run by the coaches that made them up..everybody else has just sort of thrown in hybrid systems to accomodate the players they have
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    I think we need to work on the following things for 2008:

    - Corners need to jam the receivers more on the line of scrimmage
    - We need a more complex offense that puts more emphasis on the short to medium passing game
    - We need an edge pass rusher at DE (Draft should clear that up ?)
    - Get Peterson in SPACE, rather than run him off tackle into a stacked box

    so your advocating giving u on the cover 2?
    maybe just a bit more press

    :
    I don't advocate dropping the Dungy 2 unless we fail to get De's that can get to the QB. In that defense, it's success really hinges on that upfield pressure and if it isn't there, there is no way the secondary is going to be able to do it's job. So long story short, if we are not able to get pressure from the Dline, then we need to abandon the 10 yard cushion and get more physical with the Wr's off of the line. When the QB has time to throw and the WR's have a cushion to run in, we are going to give up alot of passes and alot more 1st downs.
