    Yep which is why I have misgivings about Kiffin. Had no clue how to stop the pistol versus college players.

    Look up Kiffin's defense vs. Michael Vick. Derrick Brooks ate his lunch.

    You need to have the right personnel and scheme it correctly.

    The NFL will catch on to the gimmick.

    Last time Jerry wanted a running QB, we ended up with Quincy Carter.

    We're to the point where we need options in case Romo is nothing more than a choke artist.

    I bet Quincy could have run the read option real good. :)

    So true. You know Jerry will see these good, young mobile QB's and reach to draft Denard Robinson in the second round or something.

    The 49ers know how to pressure the qb. It seems they are in Rodgers face every play.

    That was 10 years ago.

    Look at Kiffin's D against Oregon in 2012. A lot has changed since 2002.

    My prediction is that we're going to see Wilson vs. Kap in the NFC-CG.

    People seem to forget that Kaepernick is still in the TAKEOVER role and has not played a full season yet as the starter.

    So let's not overreact and think he will be the man. Remember it's easy to perform when you are taking over for someone else

    True.

    Furthermore, Cover 2 is a zone coverage.

    All night, the FOX crew has been going on and on about how the Packers run an abundance of man coverage.

    Again, the right personnel is paramount. Bruce Carter could be that guy.

    I just wish some defense would pop the QB no matter what. Don't watch the ball...just go after the QB.

    Sorta agree.

    There will always be a place for a cover 2 defense but running a defense that doesn't adjust out of cover 2 is just asking to get torched these days.

    Some of these new schemes and formations are built to whoop grandpas stubborn old schemes.

    Mike Vick couldn't pass. Ever.

    Kaep is just good enough as a passer to make it work.

    That the difference. Taking away the running game from Vick pretty much takes away his entire game.

    Kaep is capable enough, albeit likely not consistent enough, to once a team takes his running ability out of the equation he can still pass and hurt you.

    The Packers are playing man coverage for the most part. Cover 2 is a zone coverage.

    Oh is it?

    I wonder why more teams simply don't plug in backups for the hell of it then.

    Exactly, and there are more and more QBs like that coming into and through the college ranks.
