Slot corner D.J. Moore recognized the Bills were likely to run a smash concept with the two receivers to that side, sending the outside receiver on a slant and the inside guy on a corner route. He desperately signaled to RCB Josh Norman to switch if the receivers cross. Instead of each tracking their man on their respective patterns, if the receivers cross the corners would switch assignments and track the incoming man, putting them ahead of the play and not trailing it — something vital in these tight quarters down by the end zone.


So, to illustrate why Norman hasn't been starting despite his preseason showing, it's apparent that he is still struggling to understand situational coverages. While some here will blame coaching for him failing to recognize the obvious, notice that DJ Moore, who is a newcomer to the Panthers defense, knew exactly what was going on.

Were we out of timeouts at the end of the game?

 

Seems like there was only one play left and would be a good time to make sure our makeshift defense knew what the heck their assignments were

Ron had two time outs and didn't use one. How about be a coach and help your young guys if you see there is a problem. I guess it is more beneficial to finish the game with those two time outs then to actually use them when needed.

Rivera loves to take timeouts home with him for some reason.

Why take a timeout and give the Bills free time to decide on a play when they're the ones playing against the clock? And how are the coaches supposed to know that Norman didn't understand what Moore clearly indicated to him? It was only after the game was over that Norman claimed to have not gotten a signal while the rest of the defense was like "WTF, you were right there!"

Our defense needs to stop folding in the 2nd half. It's like we make no adjustments and others do instead

 

We also need to blitz more

The kid is raw, very raw.  But, he has shown flashes. 

 

If only there was a way...a mechanism....or a procedure.....a process to take players that have potential and turn that into performance.  Then, think of it!  If someone discovered this magical potion they could instruct or, teach if you will, this new found way of doing things and players would get better and better.

 

Oh, the possibilities!

 

But, what would we call this person or persons that could impart such knowledge?
