Monte DOES mix it up and does NOT keep it that simple. It is simple scheme in general but there is some complexity to it with the wrinkles Monte adds Ever since 2002 the Bucs have played a lot more man to man and cover 3 than the conventional cover 2/tampa 2.



100% correct they were strictly zone when Tony was here but since 02 Monte plays alot Man cover 2 with safety help over the top, he also plays alot of nickel man 2 as well with the DB's manning up and Ronde coming off the edge. It has tapered off some with Kelly out because Bolden can simply not be left on an island.

That is true.  Ronde is the best in the biz when it comes to blitzing from that nickel spot and teams have to respect that.

Imagine if the Bucs can bring in Clements or a healthy Kelly back how much better this defense would be.  Imagine a better pass rush or better safety play.

I tip my hat to Monte as they slowly have crawled out of the dweller in the rankings despite missing/lacking so much talent.

Karen wow! You must be a BIg Dog Supporter. we are not talking about the offense we are taking about defense and how they can get better because this year as a team we have 14 sacks. Peppers has 11 or 12 by himself that is bad and when you want to talk about pass defense getting batter then you better be talking about getting a better ruch on the QB i dont care who you are if you dont get a good rush then your corners are going to get beat every time because they will have the time to break off of thier initial route and run something else to get open because the QB has to much time to throw and that is what has been happening. When the opposing QB had like 5 or 6 seconds to throw a pass that is to much time and in this leauge when you have that much time to throw the ball WR are going to get open plain and simple

No, it is time to get some sacks, and some pressure at the first level of defense...

Then it will all come together, and Kiff will be serving MOUNDS of crow...

But how do you get pressure on the QB Boid?

YOU DRAFT CALVIN JOHNSON, BRADY QUINN, TROY SMITH, JAMARCUS RUSSELL, TED GINN!!!
