Why the fug was he covering Harry Douglas instead of Julio or White? That's bullshit and terrible call by Mcterrible.

We were in zone, and both Julio and White lined up on the left side of the field opposite of Gamble. It wouldn't make sense for Gamble to follow them over there when we're in a zone, but I agree there was a whole lot of things that were wrong on that play. We should've been in some type of prevent defense anyway. There's no way they were going to run the ball, and Rivera has got to know that.

It wouldn't have made sense to switch Gamble over in a zone in a NORMAL situation. When we're on the last drive by Atlanta, when they're backed up with no timeouts and having to move quickly, you tell the secondary (after the game White had up to that point) "Gamble goes to White's side, no matter what." That's basic football there. Simple as that. Bad job on McDermott's part. Hopefully he learned a lesson. Gamble would have at least made it a tougher catch, if not knock the pass down.

Two more questions spurred by this article...

1) Why do we have eight men in the box in that situation?

2) Why are we playing cover-2 zone?

Any coach that runs cover 2 late in a game needing to limit a big play needs to be fired directly after the game

You are giving away single coverage deep.

Got to play 2 / 3 Man Under in that situation.

Obvious answer here, our dline pressured ryan all game, we ran cover 2 to cover the flats so ryan couldn't dump it off giving him more space to operate for a deep play. Yea it would've been smart to run man coveragein that situation, but giving the position thefalcons were in, we played it safe and was expecting our line to pressure him again. It was a good read by ryan noticing what coverage we were running and he took a shot downfield, which worked. Ultimately it was a good playcall by al OC, and ryan chose the right guy to throw at in the situation.

There's no excuse at all not to have your best CB on White's and Julio's side

We had two defenders facing one receiver, Nakamura was in a perfect position to make a play had he only aimed to knock it away instead of going for the int. (same thing in the TD...).

If I remember correctly it even look that we adjusted on the deep resposibility to Norman on the play. I think the correct play was called, it was just not executed.

McDermott is still learning like Rivera!
