Why Did Fox Move To Tampa Defenses

27 posts in this topic

Ok... would it be if I say we run a "soft zone coverage", cause we do. That would be the name

We dont zone blitz or deal with anything involving blitzing lol, we run flat sometimes, and we never press coverage at all

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

Im sorry but your flat wrong on this one. For one we have not been running the Tampa 2 at all or Cover 2 that much. We have been playing mostly in the cover 3 some cover 2 but we didn't much last year cause of liability at FS. We used lots of zone blitzes and stunts but really no Tampa 2 at all. The soft zone coverage is not Tampa 2 also and if you watch the Buc's or the Bears play D that will show you there is noting soft about it. Really we could see just as much Man to Man out of the Cover 2 as we would see zones and also not just a 4-3 base but some 3-4 mixed in. There are alot of possibility with it. Hell Meeks won a SB with it so dont be so sure Fox will try to put his stamp on it.

You sir, are wrong. We zone blitzed a very good bit this year. Particularly in in the first half of the season.

Naw not some. We ran both cover 2 and 3. Yes cover 3 more than 2. And we didnt blitz a lot, yall already know that. Rarely no linebacker blitzed when Pep(who mainly did it) dropped back. Check the N.Y game. Not gonna say never did, that would be wrong, cause we did. Not a lot

Yea I just addressed that in the message above

Just funny how I named the N.Y game, a game in the 2nd half of the season. And how Fox made his "mark" around mid season towards the end

But I'm not talking about that really. I'm talking secondary

The NY game is a bad example because we didnt have our DTs and that limited us to what we could do. Really it tied both hands behind our back if you really want to know the truth.:( I watched most of the games over last year and when we dropped Peppers or Brayton back in a zone we were blitzing our LBs. Classic zone blitz right there and we did it all season long. Really we didnt run much cover 2 if you had a chance to look over the game because of Godfrey. We did start to do it more in the second half and thats why we saw more blown coverages. We blitzed alot last season but it was at the wrong times and sometimes it looked sloppy. That dose not mean we didnt do it though. :lol:

Simply amazing people forget how much tampa 2 we've played since John Fox was here. Even when Del Rio was our DC.
