    Achilies Heal on Defense - LB's Middle of Field Zone Coverage

    You ever notice our LB's in pass coverage when they're playing zone...????? Thier eyes are almost ALWAYS glued in the backfield instead of the receivers running accross the field in front of, and in back of them. They literally stand facing the backfield instead of taking any angels to cover the receivers.... We NEED better coverage backers and/or better LB coaching!!!

    Did you know that Dansby and Burnett are actually really good cover LBs?

    Bet you didn't.

    the first week of the season i posted a thread saying almost the same thing. dansby seems soft in the open field. it seems like he doesnt even try sometimes. but at other times dansby is good. i still think the position needs to be upgraded, but with that being said i would be ok going into next year with the same group so we can upgrade the bigger needs of the team

    How many TEs gave us fits this year? How many RB screens?

    You think that's w/o having good coverage LBs?

    As a matter of fact, Dansby an Burnet has very solid seasons.... and for once, TEs didn't kill this team like all those past years....

    Remember Churning Chowder..... damn he sucked at everything!!!!

    Spiller is the best RB in the open field in the NFL. He killed everybody.

    Besides Willis there are very few great coverage LBs, there LBs for a reason. So ****s gonna get thru them. Always happen.

    So in terms of COVERAGE LBs there both damn good.
