    I think Frazier was the secondary coach in Indy, whereas he is the defensive coordinator here.
    That is a promotion.

    ^^^that is correct.
    frazier was the DB coach in Indy.
    ...Rodgers had to hold on the ball longer, giving players like Jared "I am completely insane and will literally eat your children" Allen time to sack Rodgers again.And again. And again. Actually I think Rodgers may have nightmares about Jared Allen the rest of the year.

    He likes to get to the QB.
    The Blitz will leave our corners on an island by themselves if we don't get to the QB fast enough, but I am all for it.

    There shouldn't be alot of the CB' out on an island if he sticks with the T2 Defense.

    Physical cornerbacks also are vital to an effective Tampa Two, because their job is to handle wideouts at the line of scrimmage and disrupt them in the five-yard zone. Gone is the pure clampdown corner, the guy who can be left on an island to shut down a wideout. Think: Deion Sanders. In truth, Deion would struggle in the Tampa Two, because physical play was never his strength. But Sanders was a rare talent who could cover NFL wideouts and take them out of the game. The dearth of such players, according to former Eagles' QB (and current ESPN chalkhead) Ron Jaworski, was one of the factors that led to the popularity of Tampa Two.
    Couple of links with good stuff like what I pulled if your interested in reading about it.

    Correct.
    He also held the title of Asst Head Coach position, but thats a lame ass title -- evidenced by Mike Tice last year in Jax.
