I would have thought our CBs are more man to man CBs but I do think they fair better in the bump and run. Thoughts........

Do you have generously paid CBs in a cover 2 D? I thought that you could get them cheaper, so I am a touch confused at why we have signed up Gamble to a what should be a man coveage CB's contract...

Well seeing as how they have never played in a Cover 2 defense for their entire tenure in Carolina, no.

we NEVER bump anyone at the line. ever. they're going to have to learn that if a Cover 2 scheme is going to be effective. Gamble can hang with receivers, but if Lucas comes up to the line to bump someone they'll probably run right past him.

all i know is that we got called for 1 pass interference call last year and that's just pathetic.

It is harder to play man to man that be a Cover 2 corner. Our guys will be able to adapt.

Perhaps this is the wrong question.

They have similar philosophy's, so instead of assuming the DC will take over the defense, he will just be calling Fox's defense?

I know it doesn't really pertain to this thread but when our defense was actually good a few years ago, was Fox more involved or less involved than he was this past season? It would be interesting to make a comparison instead of assuming Fox will make Meeks his other hand puppet.

The scheme probably won't be altered significantly.

It could be a combination of both...




We have no idea what it'll be, but I could see it being eerily similiar.

Then again, I could see variations...


None of us know.
