    ~ He earned Pro Bowl honors in two of his first three seasons in Detroit, but his man-to-man style suddenly became a poor fit for the team in 2006, when the Lions hired Rod Marinelli as head coach.

    The cover two scheme installed by Marinelli and his staff last season does not demand great coverage skills. Instead, it requires cornerbacks to be more proficient in zones and combination packages and to excel in run support.

    Playing in the new scheme in 2006, Bly registered three interceptions, his lowest total since 2002. There were times last year that the eight-year veteran, who might have the best hands of any cornerback in the NFL, appeared uncomfortable in the defense.



    great ..... more good cover guys asked to play an anemic zone
