Can someone explain in detail our defensive scheme? I get the d- line playing 'wide', but are the corners/safety playing cover 2 traps or man to man when we get beat? I noticed that nnamdi had his back towards the qb 'trapping' the receiver towards the sideline on a few plays. But that play where cruz caught that TD with nnamdi and page was just ridiculous. i can't sleep at night knowing nnamdi is a bust in this system. Thing that sucks the most is that as much as our run defense sucks, ELI threw four touchdowns on us with no name receivers. WE HAVE NNAMDI DRC AND ASANTE. This should not happen.
Again im no football genius but i am a die hard eagle fan who loves to play madden so i'm going to ask whats wrong with a 5-2 defense? our lineman are amazing why not add one more and stop the run? Leave the receivers man to man. and only 2 linebackers. won't this be a much simpler system that helps us stop the run and lets our corners do their thing on receivers AND make our safeties focus on being more 'dawkin-like', all while putting less pressure on our un-tested linebackers. I don't know what dawkin-like exactly means but its somewhere along the lines of hitting hard and playing with swag. at the end of the day dawkins wasnt the best in coverage but he hit hard and was intimidating. watching laron landry play, it sort of reminded me of dawk. We need that.
BTW if we kept Stew would we have been better off at LB?
We should only need Vick to put up great numbers against the Pats and Jets. The rest of the games should be won on defense regardless of what our offense does.
