THANK YOU! This play drives me nuts...it works almost 100% of the time. Fangio loves to play his outside CB's a mile off so it's simple 8-10+ yard catches on us every time. I don't understand it. We'll play deep balls tight but allow simple pitch-and-catches EVEN when we bring the blitz. Hello...THAT is the time to jump a route (or at least contest a throw) b/c the QB has to throw quickly d/t the pressure.
Yup i 100% agree. If you give that much cushion, the 3 step drop is unstoppable. They need to make the pass catchers work like dogs to get open and free! Let the CB's beat em up on LOS so they can run with em step for step instead of being on their heels and guessing all day. You feel me!
Oh and the Defensive front is getting alittle worn down, we need to rotate more backup guys in on early downs sometimes so our studs can be fresh on 3rd and important.
