It's called red zone defense. ... Most teams drop into a zone style coverage 2 deep when an opposing offense hits the red zone... This defense brackets your hitches and out / in patterns while leaving your outsides open for fades one on one .. Also you could get a wr open on a quick slant in these situations .. Quick slants and fades are typically not Jason's duty / calls.. Typically Jason will be assisting in blocking closer to end zone then bump out to a short relief valve type pattern.. Bottom line field gets smaller defenses get tighter
I believe we could exploit these defense patterns with Witten if he was able to break off the line without block or chip responsibilities ...
