View Full Version : I dont understand

I dont understand why no one can cover the pats WR. Every time they run the 5 WR set they do one of the following.

Quick pass to gives or brown on the side with 3wr. Quick slant pass to either wr on the left or right closest to the line. The quick out to Brown. And the streak to branch. But no one presses up on them?

Their receivers aren't that good either. Teams need to start manning them up & bumping them at the line. There's no reason why guys like Dedric Ward or David Givens should be catching passes.

True.... they are alright to pretty good WR's.... but they can easily be stopped.

maybe its because the pats know that if you put out 5 wr's the defense will counter with extra db's.. those extra db's are far lesstalented than NE wr's so they get open. I am sure Branch and Ward and the bunch can beat a mis-match on a sorry 3rd string corner.

True.... so why doesn't everyone do it?
