Re: Soft defense explanations
Why are we giving the WR's so much space? The 4th and 13 was a wide-open easy catch. I can't remember many deep balls thrown on us all year long. Seems like every pass is within 15 yards. The 85 yarder was a busted coverage yes. Keith Marshall's long catch was a catch/run swing pass. I just don't see teams taking many shots downfield b/c they're scared of the pass rush. Now, I know through two games we don't have the SACKS to make teams scared. But then again you don't see teams taking 5 step drops and double moves by the WR's (correct me I'm wrong) So what's the need of DB's giving them so much space?
If I'm wrong I'm sure someone will let me know. I never went back and rewatched the UNC or Georgia game, so I'm sure I missed some things.
