MUST throw the ball deep down the sidelines.

So instead of short interceptions you want long interceptions?

I suppose it's the same as a punt.

Good call!

I totally agree. Took an imaginative mind to come up with that. Who did GM steal it from?

LOL! I didn't know you did that Ron!

how long do you think his gay slurs would fly in Frisco? I'm just saying..
Since we can't block, why aren't we trying QB roll outs? Could buy more time.

Hearst didn't seem to have a problem. You offend a bunch of gay people, what are they going to do? Put rainbow flags in your lawn? Scary.

They will sic Rosie on you.
I don't know if you guys are aware of it, but we are playing the Bears, a team that plays strictly a cover 2. You can't go 'deep down the sidelines on a cover 2 because there will be a safety waiting on top if you do.

The way to beat the cover 2 is down the seams (hashmarks) and behind the MLB. Urlacher is not playing so the way to beat a cover 2 is with a fast TE (to attack the middle) or a good slot WR (to attack the seams). Another good way to go against a cover 2 is to run it. Since there will be two safeties back, there should be seven defenders (in the 4-3) and seven blockers (5 oline, TE, FB) so the Gore should be on the second level by the time he's tackled.

You can't just make a sweeping generalization that we should 'throw the ball deep'. You have to know the scheme of the team you are playing and know how to beat it.

You have a point, but are you saying that no team that uses the Cover 2 has ever been beat deep, ever?

Then the following week we play a team with good safeties, so we can't go deep either. Screw it. Let's just not throw deep the entire season. I don't think you can think this way. I mean, I don't think the entire game plan should be to throw deep down the sidelines, but I don't think it's a bad idea once in a while. Even if it doesn't work, at least it gives the defense another thing to think about. I don't even remember the last time we attempted a deep pass to one of our WRs.

Plus, LBs and DBs bite on play-actions sometimes, regardless of what scheme they're using.

Aaron Rodgers is getting sacked more than our Qb and they take there shots deep down the field, that is why Greenbay is always in the game.
