BUMP IF YOU WANT THE FALCONS TO TRASH THAT SOFT BEND DONT BREAK DEFENSE

I hate watching our Defensive Scheme. We are like ten yards back on the Wide Out and give them all this space. We have two Man Corners. WE NEED TO RUN MAN. I believe if Dunte was allowed to be himself and play press man he would have much more successful. Bump if you Agree!!

Well, instead of posting a new thread, I'll bump this one with my idea. Let me know what y'all think about this scheme...

Dunta plays one side man/press coverage with Decoud rotating to his side "in case" he gets beat deep. Grimes plays the other side a few yards off the reciever but he needs no deep help. His help comes underneath from the OLB, either Spoon, Nicholas, or (fingers crossed) Casey Matthews. Willy Mo stacks the box either for run support or to take the TE in coverage. Lofton and the other OLB take the RB and shallow middle, and our four man rush puts pressure on the QB.

No bend, No break!!

It is really a moot point as we too often bend AND break, as we witnessed against Green Bay!

I just think there is a misconception on this MB on what a bend but don't break defense actually is. Our base D is not a "bend but don't break" but our gameplan sometimes is. Typically a bend but don't break gameplan involves trying to generate a pass rush with the front 4 and dropping everyone back into a soft zone (maybe a cover 2 shell with the LBs in underneath zones). When we played GB the first time during the season we didn't pressure Rodgers with elaborate blitzes and usually only rushed 4. We made Rodgers run, and dink and dunk down the field... I will conceded to the view that in that game our gameplan was certainly "bend but don't break".

In the 2nd NO game, and the playoff game however we brought a ton of pressure on Blitz. Against NO, Brian Williams should have had about 4 **** sacks. In both those games we had an aggressive attacking gameplan. The problem with that however, is it puts a lot of pressure on the secondary to cover the QB's hot reads. If a QB reads a blitz he has a certain spot to throw it to so the WR can get a quick easy completion. The problem is that the hot read is often in the seam created by the void left behind the blitzer. In an attacking scheme the DB's have to tackle in the open field, or be in that WR's hip pocket. Otherwise a good QB will carve up a defense. In an attacking scheme there is a better chance of giving up a big play, but the passive "bend but don't break" scheme is just not exciting to watch.

Had our gameplan worked against Rodgers in the playoff game we wouldn't even be arguing about this. We tried both tatics against him. He was on fire, and we did a poor job of executing. If something works then nobody questions it; however, BVG was anything but passive this year in the gameplan. In the future I would simply like to see more spontaneousness in the play calling, or at least do a better job of hiding what our intentions before the play.

The zone coverage we play is an elite QB's dream....... See- A.Rodgers Dunta is best used when he can be physical and press the receiver at the line throwing off the routes. I dont see much changing Van Gorder loves his vanilla defense.
