root down Posted September 11, 2011 Share Posted September 11, 2011 I see this problem alot in zone coverage Especially with the Falcons in 3rd and long.players drop into thier zone but they act like they are trapped by an invisible force field. A WR cuts across their face in the DB/S/lber face, and they do nothing.... then the WR catchs the ball a sec later wide open. WTHCorrect me if I'm wrong. Isn't zone coverage just a general Man. Everyone goes to an "area" as their inital assignment instead of going with a specific player. But once a threat presents itself in your area, the DB should react as if that is his "man", by getting between the WR and the QB. Then if the WR continues up field, more than say 5yds, the WR is entering the zone behind the original DB, and the Deeper DB sees this and engages to take the WR.All I see is people standing around letting receivers sit in the open and make catches.What is the Point! The way the Falcons play zone seems like making plays on the ball is not aloud. Either Coaches don't know how to explain, teach zone, or the players are incompetent. Or the scheme is being played as coached and the coaches should be fired b/c it does not ever work. This is the bain of 3rd down success against us.
