This is the best pick I could find of a formation
On the left side if the WR takes 2-3 steps in and the ball is out right away there is no way the LB can be there quick enough.. It's all on the corner.. A couple steps later the LB will be in position to make a tackle.. But as for coverage if you get the ball out fast enough it's not on the LB at all IMO
Of course I could be wrong and im just seeing teams hit us with the slants really fast and then our LBs are there to make a tackle
Again, it isn't his job to run all the way out and help the CB.
Just get into the passing lane to obstruct things a bit.
Thing of beauty to watch a big man out in coverage.
In case you haven't noticed, alot of teams do this by the way.
Oh I have noticed, still just don't agree with it. You end up with you're DE covering a TE or RB, a huge mismatch at the price of little added pressure. In coverage, it only works if the QB throws something underneath and doesn't see the DE.
Anyways, everything we have said relates to the face that this is a chess match. Taking away the quick slant isn't as simple as moving the LB out a couple of steps."I hate when threads are destroyed by facts and logic."
