Thread: WCO/Cover 2 needs to go
At this point I am giving the benefit of the doubt to the changes at LB with Henderson being out. We also lost a starting Safety and IMHO depth is not at the point where that won't go unnoticed.

And the replacement at LB was Brinkley, who most contend on here can't get deep enough in the zone on pass plays, which he did quite well yesterday, especially when he wasn't forced to cheat up on the line faking a sugar blitz.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

Long story short, my issue with has nothing to do with man to man coverage.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

If the DL is under performing, obviously it puts more stress on the secondary. QB's and WR's in this league will beat any secondary given enough time. I just don't think you can simplify the defense down to one aspect. Great defenses are good across the board and not just at nose tackle.

I just happen to believe that we have decent enough DB's in the backfield. I just think that we need to give them a bit more time and our DL should help them out a bit by getting to the QB a bit more often.
Problem is, around these parts, everyone still thinks we have the dominant DL from days gone past when we don't.
Just saying.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

I think we have upgraded this year and have the potential for adequate play this year, but you've been giving the secondary a free ride for the last several years when we were clearly one of the worst secondaries in the NFL. Always putting the blame on the DL.
I would be thrilled if by the end of the season, we look at the greatest weakness on our defense being the interior of our defensive line.
BTW: I'm not necessarily of the belief that you have to have shut down corners on your team to be an effective defense. It helps, but many times at too high of a cost. I think safety play has been the bigger issue for this team and am hopeful that Harrison will continue to develop into a long term quality starter for us.
