scheme may affect the playaction were he gets sucked up on, but some plays he is just getting beat on in coverage.

He was bad against the chiefs, moeaki killed him. He'll be fine though, imagine how good of a defense we could be if we addressed positions of need?

Statistical analysis doesn't work in football.

Not worried about it too.
But he hasn't been the best coverage guy.

Experts and scouts always talk about speed. Manti was brought up recently about his lack of speed but I think he's a much better cover guy than Luke. It's not always about time speed. It's more field speed to me.

Manti will go early top5 to Raiders.

Manti wasnt a really great cover guy until this year, he was more of a downhill thumper the last few years, good against the run and blitzing.

disagree. There's plenty of room for it, but it's still getting there - there are just so many more variables.



As for the discussion on aggressive run defense - the reason behind that is to force more 2nd, 3rd and long situations. As for what that means, Rivera could simply be talking about playing one-gap (therefore attacking instead of flowing) or some run-based blitzes (and that awful double A-gap blitz that just gets overused).

Either way, LK does get sucked in on playaction and he's still shallow on his drops. He should get there but he's not where he could be.

this is what RR has been talking about all season......

players knowing their assignments............. hitting their run fits and landmarks.

we're just not there yet as a unit.
