But thats the last thing the other team would expect. Our zones are the best in the game no one man can beat them!

guys, get with the program.

soft zone is the best defense that ever was. it's so dominating and shut-down-tastic.

How about next time we play a team, we actually have someone cover their best wide receiver.

Just a thought. Might be crazy enough to work.

I think this thread is full of sarcasm.

Mentioned in another thread, Fox and Trgovac prefer to assign corners to cover a certain side of the field rather than a certain receiver.

Mike Minter suggested a few days back that it would be better this game to abandon that philosophy and assign Chris Gamble to handle Larry Fitzgerald.

Instead, the coaches stuck with the usual practice, and so here we are :(

Hate the whole philosophy myself, leaves us too open to mismatches in my opinion.

(and that's without even broaching the "man vs zone" topic)

I really thought that the way Green Bay ran their secondary was awesome. It's ballsy, but with the right personnel it's very effective. I guess it worked a little better last year than it did this year, but if you're not familiar with it, they basically have their two corners playing about 1 yard off the receivers, and most of the time they're given no safety help over the top.

Last year they had some streak going where they hadn't allowed a touchdown catch by a WR or something. I don't exactly remember. Obviously, to be that aggressive, you'd want some killer CB's.

Mr. Scot, what do you think the chances are of something like that working here in Carolina? Possibly with a little more safety help. I'm thinking of a base defense being a Cover-2 man, so that you have the deep safety to help if the receiver gets away deep on a double move or something. And that way, your corner can jump the shorter routes. If it was implemented and ended up being effective, it should help the pass rush as well...as there wouldn't be someone wide open right off the bat for the first 5 yards of his route.

I think it would play to our strengths a little better as our D-Line is nowhere near what it was in 03, and our secondary is actually fairly good.

If you play zone you have to be aggressive and attack the ball. You don't let somebody make the catch and then just try to tackle the guy. Ever wonder why our leading interceptor was a middle linebacker?

You notice the best zone defense force turnovers. Tampa Bay, Indy, those guys attack the ball. You can't expect to stop the offense if you don't attack the ball on a zone defense.

they lined fitz over marshal so many fuging times and he flat owned him. marshal is not the next cb for us either. honestly cb is now priority #1 in the draft unless somehow freeman outa k state magicly falls to us in the 2nd. hr has all the tools, but likely will not unless all the the big 3 jrs come out.
