You only play that far off in zone, then you expect safety help after the WR leaves your zone.



Reminder: We suck at zone.

It was more tongue in cheek. When Atlanta has the ball on their 30 and Byrd is in our endzone like he is waiting for a kickoff..... Not gonna get burned is obvious.

Then again, maybe Tripplett was laughing when he wrote it.

We played zone at times last year and it was successful. We have 2 new starters in the secondary now though. Players don't know each other as well. You have to have much better communication and teamwork to play zone.

Don't get your hopes up. The Spagnuolo experiment wasn't cancelled, the zone run blocking scheme last season wasn't cancelled on the first sign of rain either. Our front office tends to stick with things they install in the offseason.

The blocking clicked last season near mid point and Spags defense never did. Some of us noticed Robinson playing 25 yards off the preseason.

Let's hope we aren't 0-6 before it clicks this season.

Yeah, that boggled my mind on so many levels. It would be 3rd and 6 and guys were playing so far off that I couldn't see them on my screen even though we have been burned time and time again by underneath routes and pick plays.

Agreed Jack, and with Byrd and Robinson missing so much time in camp there had to be some rust to shake off and some gellin' to do with his team mates.

We're all just kinda shocked it was this much rust and so little gellin'

Yeah, but we never had WRs being covered by LBs. The LBs they had in coverage were bad. Why didn't they used Humber or Powell? And the zone was mixed in with man to man.

I don't think what we saw on Sunday is going to be a regular part of the Saints defensive scheme. I think it was more of specific plan for the falcons and their deep roster of wide receivers. The plan didn't work.

I think the fact the Saints drafted a press corner and brought in Champ, another press corner indicates they plan on much more man coverage than what we saw on Sunday.

Re: Film study: Reviewing Saints defense By Mike Triplett

The timing was off on defense last week. Hopefully we've had time to get the kinks worked out.
