After the bump Roy could stay in to spy McNabb, blow up screen plays or just be in the box to play the run. Occasionally Roy could just let TO go and immediately blitz (run and pass).
Has anyone ever tried anything like this before? Why couldn't a corner and saftey switch responsibilities occasionally in obvious passing situations?
Even though he is our best option as the last line of defense, his talents are being wasted and I think TO might start to lose his focus if Roy just punished him off of the line all day.
I don't see the point, TO could just sit on the bench the entire game and Philly would still slaughter us.
Nothing short of RW tinkering with Philly’s 747 is going to do much good.
