    I could be wrong but I think the skinz are the only team that consistently uses it in their play book. Also what I was alluding to when I said counter trey, is the use of misdirection to exploit when a defense relies on their DL getting up field on the snap of the ball.

    This all goes back to fitting the scheme to the players' skills. If a players' skills don't suit what is being asked of them, then they are going to have a much lower success level. Some players can still do well in Parcells' scheme... but obviously Marcus Spears was not one of them. I'm just hoping that Wade's scheme will suit Spears much better so he can be a quality player for us.

    Putting Roy Williams in coverage 95+% of the time is not a scheme that fits his skill set. (though the coaches were forced to do that because of the lack of skills by teammates)

    Its like asking Dirk Nowitzki to play basketball exactly like Tim Duncan does... its just not going to work for him.

    The run/pass transition is VERY VERY different from the 1 gap system and the 2 gap system.

    1 gap, you're already shaded to 1 side of the olineman normally and you're only concern is 1 gap. In 2 gap, you've got to account for BOTH sides of the offensivelineman that is blocking you... so you have to engage the offensive lineman HEAD ON and THEN try to get around him.

    You've got to be an absolutely physically dominant player in the 2 gap system. You can get by with good moves, agility, and technique in the 1 gap system.

    Thats a really good way to look at the difference between the two. Excellent point.
