    I don't understand why we never Bump and Run. I can't even remember us doing it any since moving to Nashville. Someone please help me understand why. Maybe I am asking for to much. Atleast we are now finally rushing our DBs.

    It would still be grammatically incorrect...

    besides Finnegan (and maybe pacman), we haven't really had a corner that can bump and run without getting toasted off the line. And Finnegan WILL bump you at the line.

    guys like Verner, McCourty, Harper, Carr, Hill, etc don't have near the recovery speed needed so they are forced to give the receiver a cushion at the line and play from their.

    Cant bump and run when you play zone. Verner and McCourty have plenty of speed to bump and run. Did more of it when greg williams was here. CB have the speed, the safeties do not. Our fastest safeties are on the practice squad and on the bench

    Not true.

    Truth is, we don't bump because our philosophy has always been keep the play in front of you.

    But since teams eat us up with nothing but slants now... it's dumb and doesn't help.




    The main problem is that we never adjust to bump WRs at the line. We don't have to worry about them burning us- they're not running beyond 10 yards while eating us alive.

    It would be insanely awesome if we not only bumped and run more often, but actually mix in that and zone coverage....at the same time. God our defense is vanilla......most of the time.

    wouldnt be much of a problem if we stop giving qb's 12 seconds to pass.
