things go poorly
Love seeing our boys keep hustling and getting rewarded for it. Go get 'em Stevie.
Yesterday my friend and I noticed that the CBs and the SS-type players were playing a few yards behind the only player in their zone. This often resulted in an easy completion followed by an immediate tackle. Is this often how zone coverage works?
It seems to me that if they were to play closer to the receiver, they could easily pick off or bat the pass or at least hit the guy as he's catching the ball to jar it loose. At the very least I would think it would prevent a QB from attempting to make difficult passes on a rollout.
For those more knowledgeable than me: Am I right in my assessment? Should our guys be playing closer? Is this how zone coverage is usually run or are we trying to protect our young secondary?
"Hail to the Victors" pre-season mag suggested a D-Line with Campbell at nose tackle and Martin as a defensive end where he won't continuously get double teamed. Anything that gets more pressure on the QB sounds good to me. Supposedly Campbell was showing improvement in the spring. What happened? Man, at this point, maybe the coaches should put him at nose for a quarter and see what happens.
so Im an Irish Catholic Wolverine, and while at church this AM, my ND supporting "friends" are telling me that the play clock ran out last night in the Little Giants play call, and the whole thing should have been called back....first off, did anyone watch that and see the same thing, and secondly, if true, what's up with the clock operator still having issues in EL? GO BLUE
I didn't see this posted anywhere, but since the Eagles are in town, I was wondering if BG made it to the game yesterday?
Well I see that this once again proves that no one really pays attention this early in the year...
