    Seems to be a conflation of at least 3 threads..

    1. A couple of weeks ago there was a big thread on the ssue of identity on offense and this tam not having one.
    2. We've had a few threads on us simply needing to play for man-to-man, cause our CBs suck in coverage.
    3. Many of our posters are now conitually saying the OL is an excuse and teams getting by, and we are actually having better production than before. The idea we don't run basedupon OL being bad is essentially just an excuse.

    We don't run because we don't do it well. Running into a brick wall hoping you will eventually break thru is a bad strategy. I'm not certain there is anything that can be done to help this defense. You can't expect DBs to cover without decent pressure. Are we getting that? You have to have LB coverage and we aren't that good at that. We aren't playing zone well because we don't have the safety play to do it and its not the forte of Carr or Oscan. If you start with the man under stuff you have to have the safety play to cover it up. Do we have the personnel to do that?

    Edit: You can help things by getting people healthy.

    I'm just responding to the fact it sounds like Gosselin is rehashing what the zone is saying..

    These guys steal stuff here all the time. I've seen my stuff around on a couple of occasions.

    We don't have the personal to run ANY scheme. Unless it starts with a DL made up of street FA's.

    Oh, Kiffin was brought in ro tun the 4-3.

    Thank you. They don't always just steal the ideas and rebrand it in their own way. I've seen out and out plagiarism a couple of times....once almost verbatim.

    That's why I made the comment about Gosselin.. It almost sounds like straight up plagiarism frm different posts. The funny thing is, ever since I got on Cowboys Zone, I've gotten my news from you guys, cause everytime I read an article, I realized you guys were in the know well in advance and contributed much more than these guys.
