Why Did Fox Move To Tampa Defenses

27 posts in this topic

In 06 it started to get put in place. This zone coverage and just rushing mainly 4. Yea we always had a powerful front 4, but we still blitzed from time to time. And we used to play man and bump and run. Gamble and Lucas was all over the field covering opposite teams best WR. 05 was the last year we did that

Now we play 5-10 yards off and just run a zone with everybody staying in the same place

Same thing Tampa being doing for years. Then we hired Meeks who run the same system. That just shows you, like I've said, Mike runs Fox defense. There will be no changes this season

Why??? What made Fox see the best way to go that route

initially... to beat Vick... as far as changing to the cushion on the corners... Lord only knows... i just hope he lets meeks do his own thing and stay out of it...

This is foxy we're talking about. If Monte was our DC, fox would tinker with the defensive schemes three weeks into the season.

My only problem is that Fox doesn't know when to adapt or make changes when necessary. I do have a problem with just rushing 4 most of the time. But if the front 4 is that good, its ok. But we dont have the same front 4 so we gotta blitz. We dont

Far as the coverage, I dont like it all, no matter what. I liked our 05 man to man, bump and run scheme

This is the same defense we played since 2002.

you're saying we didn't play zone behind a lot of front-four pressure in 2002, 03, 05?

since 2002, yes we have mainly pressured with our front 4, but we played man coverage.

I mean seriously. We ran man defense with Terry Freaking Cousin? Reggie Howard?

    • And to think this guy made it through 7 rounds and not one team wanted him.  Thank God Gettleman was on his "A" game and signed him here. Amazing how talent can bypass so many scouts, coaches and GMs. If they did a redraft.   What round would he go to?  Round 1?  He's a solid of a Guard as any in this league.
    • you do realize that $1M pledge he made was after he had received a ton of backlash and outcry from the media for sitting during the national anthem? He did hold his promise and has made some other donations as well, but before he decided to sit at football games, he didn't do jack poo for oppressed communities and the homeless, or any other charities for that matter. He was just a narcissist prima dona who so happened to play for one of the most talented teams in the NFL headed by one of the greatest coaches in the NFL. Him prospering early on in his career made him a cocky SOB who dressed like a thug during press conferences and treated the media like dog poo.  Yes people change, but he changed for the wrong reasons. His career was in turmoil, he was a declining NFL QB trying to stay relevant, so he thought up a rouge to get back in the spotlight by sitting. After he received backlash, he thought to himself "oh crap, I need to back up my words with some action. let me make a few donations to show the world I truly care about what I stand for"  the dude could give a rats ass about any of that poo. He didn't even show up to vote, and I don't think he's ever voted in his life. And I don't care about voting for the president, but at least vote for your local officials and congressman and for your states propositions. If he truly wants to have a voice and use the stage he has to inflict some serious changes in this country, there's a way to go about it, not seek attention for the wrong reasons just to resurrect your career.  
    • I love Moton. The only thing that freaks me out about him is that he played for a small school. I do think he could've flourished for a big time program though.
