Pressure up front will go along way toward helping that too

On Paper

I hope this transfers to the field
And we stay injury free

I recall Byrd being the second coming
Not that long ago

Learn how zone coverage works first.

Re: Saints secondary is aiming to be the strength of the defense

Marcus Williams (bad pursuit angles) and Vonn Bell (getting burnt deep) are having their problems early in training camp...

I suspect they'll have some personal time with Dennis Allen, who's position specialty was safeties; Raphael Bush could always start as FS as well...

We're running alot of two deep safety looks; I suspect that's also because of the LBer depth, talent level...

Kenny Vacarro has been nonexistent too so far in training camp. It's early still but all this cover 2 is square peg-round hole stuff.

I don't know, Chris, just because we're not hearing Vacarro's name doesn't mean a bad thing...though I'd agree I'd like to hear about the occasional INT or FF...

I'll say this about Cover-2, don't know if it's the answer or more just better execution, but I'd thought we'd run more Cover 2 ...

...especially to stop this bullshinski the past couple of seasons of allowing waaaay too much 3rd and long conversions...
