The 10 yard cushion is a staple in DL's zone blitz defensive scheme.
Confusion and creating QB's to make mistakes while not getting beat deep is the reason...
Stop with the lack of talent BS please.
How come other teams can successfully plug in rookie defensive players and have them contribute.
Why is our #1 draft pick who played in a 3-4 scheme in college still rotating with a career backup in Worilds?
Why are we constantly giving up 3rd and longs?
Why do QB's march down the field on their initial possessions?
Don't they watch film on opposing teams to set their gameplanning strategy?
Lebeau needs to see the defense first in order to make adjustments?
How about coming out and dictating to the offense for a FN change..Let them be the ones to adjust...
DL has been around for 40 years, he really needs to watch a team throw quick passes and get into a groove first?
Why have we wasted two #1 draftpicks on defensive lineman that ride the bench while trying to learn the complex Lebeau system.
Line them up and play FN ball instead of retaining older players that know the system and have nothing left in the 4th quarter.
It took Lewis 3 years to play in this system and then he's gone.
Keep wasting picks on defense that can't contribute early in their careers and this is what you have to deal with.
