Can someone explain to me


I'm hoping that someone can explain to me why in the world we dont stick the damn receivers at the line when we are in the red zone?

I watched the passing TDs made by the fal'coons' last night. In every one of them our S, CBs stood at the goal line...waiting for the receivers to run their routes. 

Imagine how different it would have been if we held them up for a second or two, while we give our DLine that extra time to add pressure to the QB. Three things can happen when you smack a receiver at the line:

1. You will mess up the timing of the play, especially this early in the season when the QB and receivers are going by feel instead of natural instincts

2. You make the receivers adjust their route. This means they will not be at the point of contact that the QB is expecting and the QB will have to check down to the next available or throw the ball away.

3. The receiver will burn your CB/S. How likely is this to happen with the speed and agility of our three pro bowlers.

Chaney's greatest asset is his speed, although it didnt look like it on the 2nd TD ( I still dont think he had possesion until his feet were off the ground), or on the final TD when he caught up to "Mugsy" but didnt show the speed to run through him and wrap up. I still feel he has the speed to play up on the TE, give him a shove and then catch up to the route.
