    Re: Viking and NFL corners

    Jamming the wr's at the line can be an advantage against a wco if you are able to throw off the timing of the short to intermediate routes and make the QB hold the ball a few seconds longer. By doing this you give the DL a bit more time to beat a blocker and get to the QB, but you usually become more vulnerable to a TE getting open in a seam if you don't get pressure fast enough. A back releasing into the flat can also hurt you because the corners are too close to the LOS.

    The packers did a brilliant job of it in a playoff game in the early 90's to beat the niners and the patriots used it against the colts for a few years in the early 00's.

    If you miss, it can really leave you vulnerable.

    I thought the reason we drafted Cedric Griffin was, he is physical on the LOS.
