Thread: WCO/Cover 2 needs to go
10-02-2012, 02:31 PM #61
The pass defense played better yesterday than I expected against a good passing offense like Detroit. It helped that we got a lead and could emphasize a conservative deep coverage defense. Even Cook seemed to be playing a bit of a deep zone at times. A number of dropped passes by Detroit helped, but I think the secondary should be given a fair amount of credit for their performance yesterday. As well as the DL of course
I will agree with your overall point though that the Cover/Tampa 2 defense is still a valid approach as long as you have the right talent and execution.

"....Damn, I wish they would have went into a prevent defense and kept their DB's back a big more so that the long pass wouldn't have happened...."
Kindof a catch 22 if you ask me. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

Another thing I was waiting for someone to chime in on is that they disguised those blitzes alot better that last 2 weeks. I absolutely hated all the "Mug" looks we showed all the time.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

Heck, show me the plan to add all the FA's we need that will allow it.
In the end you can't. That is why ALL teams rely on some variant of "Zone" coverage on the backend. Just not enough talent to allow otherwise. Prime example...=....Jets. keep on watching how that D struggles without their shutdown guy.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings are only teams using cover 2 defense - ESPN The Magazine - ESPN
only two teams -- the Bears and Vikings -- consider the cover 2 to be their base defense. Most teams are switching to more combination man coverages

I knew I should have put this article in my other post..........
The cover 2 remains a part of most defensive playbooks and likely will never entirely die.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.
