Are our CBs Cover 2 players?

34 posts in this topic

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.

    • I do think Kpassagnon is an interesting prospect that needs to be in the right situation to thrive. It just so happens that we have one of the best 6'7" defensive ends in the history of the NFL on a reunion tour with us in 2017 and maybe if need be, 2018 if he holds up.   Kpassagnon's attitude and work ethic is strong and tireless. His 3-cone and vert scare me for a defensive end, and that's not something you can teach. Being able to bend and explode off the snap to beat OL is not something that Peppers can show him, but maybe Peppers can show how to use athleticism to his advantage.  I can see him being just another Michael Johnson/Erik Armstead player or I could also see the environment here in Carolina benefiting him and he becomes a Carlos Dunlap kind of lanky DE that causes headaches along our DL. Kpassagnon's spider web looks amazing and awful all at the same time. I'd take him in this draft, but "where" is the big question.
