Matt Ryan=MAVERICK Posted May 11, 2011 Share Posted May 11, 2011 Number 1...IT AIN'T THE PLAYERS!I personally believe we have a playoff caliber group on defense, along w/ an adequate amount of depth..What I believe has truly hindered this defense is the type of spacing that our corners are asked to give the receivers. They seem to be freaking 7-10 yrds off of the L.O.S on every down!!! Ever wonder why our d-linemen always seem to be a step off from getting a sack? IT'S B/C OPPOSING RECEIVERS ARE WIDE OPEN AS SOON AS THE BALL IS SNAPPED! Go back and look for yourself... If anyone here believes that Nnamdi or Revis could keep up with the opposition while playing 10 yrds off on every play, YOU ARE INSANE. Why are our corners not given the opportunity to press, and disrupt the timing of of our opponents. They could also approach the L.O.S as if they are going to press, and then bail out into zone coverage. I don't know who's behind this mind-numbing defensive scheme, whether it's Smitty or BVG, but they should be slapped for it. Why pay Dunta, an ELITE press coverage corner, so much money only to handcuff him w/ this stupid off-coverage?! Check out the Mike Williams TD from the Tampa game in Atl, and you'll see what I mean. No one who has ever played the game, would be able to stop this... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
