Bad Defense. Does this make sense to you?

    Can anyone explain to me why A Glenn is matched up against Roy Williams in this play?

    The resulting play is a TD.

    A Glenn can't cover Roy Williams.

    Pretty creepy.

    And Glenn should've just molested him once RY got to the spot. Even with the PI call and the ball at the 1 there would've only been 2 or 3 seconds left forcing then to kick the FG afterall.. or go for it.

    Course I'm sure they would've went for it and prolly just called the same play again anyhow. ;)

    Why was Williams not double teamed there? Meaning the safety shown on the same side of the field, where did he go because he certainly did not roll the way of Williams? Did he go to double team the TE with the LB?

    Its a fade route the corner.

    Difficult to get safety help on that play.

    B/c Newman was on Furrey... he's the REAL threat apparently

    Coaches Zimmer and Parcells: "Because that's how we do it...we always line up that way...he plays that side...we don't flip-flop guys...it's never been a problem till now...don't know what the problem was...we'll have to watch the tape and look at that...I'm focused on this week, I don't have time to dwell on last week's game...please don't ask such specific questions when I'm so depressed and upset, can't you see I'm an old man and pity me?"

    I'll add that A.Glenn played the fade route perfectly, but that's why Kitna lobbed the ball inside and let Roy come back and get it with Glenn trapped behind him looking for the fade. To be honest, I'm not sure anyone, including TNew could have covered the expected fade and still stopped the Kitna throw...Newman couldn't even cover the basic corner route to Mike Williams yesterday.

    I have 2 questions about this...


    1. Why wasnt TNEW on him?
    2. Why dont we see this play setup for TO?

    Actually there are several teams that do this in nickel situations. The theory is that you take your best cb and put him in single coverage vs the slot receiver, thereby freeing up the safeties to either blitz or double cover the outside guys.

    I agree, however, that leaving Glenn in single coverage in that situation probably wasn't a good idea. :(

    Well I think a person has to give Kitna a lil credit on 3 of those TD passes actually.

    Yeah I know he's a pro QB yada yada, but those were perfectly placed balls. It's not like we dont see other QB's under throw, over throw, put them out too wide.. whatever, fairly often.

    Do they really think A Glenn can cover Roy Williams?

    Really?

    On our last series of 4 plays I would have been happy to see a single play or pass that at least had a chance.

    No one's talking about it because our defense was so bad, but we ran 4 plays down there and never even gave anyone a single chance to make a play...we never threw a pass that was touched by an offensive or defensive player...it was a horrible and embarrassing series.

    Instead of playing off Williams, Glenn needs to play tight cover on him.

    The Safety needs to roll his coverage, and give Glenn some help over the top.


    This play never would have happened.

    This crap reminds me of when Switzer was here.

    No, it reminds me of Campo.

    Very much like assigning Kareem Larrimore and Dwayne Goodrich to Terrell Owens and expecting success.

    i thought a. glenn was actually playing the best corner on the team until recently. IMO henry just plain sux, and t-new is average. i know a lot of you think he's the second coming of neon deon, but there's a reason he doesn't get picks. he's been burned as much as anyone lately.

    Newman is the slot CB, Henry was on his side and Glenn was on his side. The Lions took advantage of that, knowing Glenn would be on that side.
