This is a great argument btw rkell87.
Chris Conte came down from his safety spot to the right side of the DL beside Lance Briggs to blitz. As soon as this movement occurred the corner went into bail technique because he's playing deep responsibility as he really has no safety help at that point. The timing of the corner bailing on the press was perfect and it fooled Dez.
If the ball was snapped a few seconds later Dez gets a better read of the coverage as the corner bails.
When I saw this play happening in real time, I thought initially that Romo would call timout because the Bears loaded up the LOS with 7 men and we had 6. When Conte came down from the safety spot it appeared Romo didn't even see him as he was looking the other way and it also appeared that no one on the line had accounted for him. As the play turns out no one accounted for him and he got a free run at Romo but the miscommunication between Dez and Romo was the killer. The Bears also only sent 6 men as one of the LBs on the LOS dropped into a zone on the snap.
"It's little bit like the description of pornography from years back. It's hard to define it. But you know what it is at the end of it. It's hard to define it. I think you know who is more physical. Often times you see that in the fourth quarter. A lot of time the team on the other side feels it. We pride ourselves on being a physical football team. It's important to us. It's an important time of the year to lay that foundation." - Coach Garrett
