All-Twenty Tuesday: Bucs’ Secondary vs. Saints

Animated GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

Much of this breakdown is going to be highlighting the bad of the Bucs secondary, so I wanted to start out with some good – because for the first part of the game there was a decent amount of good to praise.

The Bucs’ defensive game plan was plenty aggressive to start this one. In the play above, Tampa Bay deployed Cover 1, which is true man coverage on all receiver fronts with one safety on the back end to cover the entire deep part of the field. In such a coverage shell, it’s up to each coverage player to stay close to their man and follow them wherever they go on the field after the snap. They have deep safety help, but they shouldn’t rely on it heavily.

In the play above, the Saints had just four yards to gain for the first down. The part of this play I want to highlight was actually where the ball was thrown. Safety Jordan Whitehead was the coverage player at the bottom of the screen going man-on-man with Saints tight end Jared Cook, who was out wide. The reason the Saints send Cook out wide is to hopefully get a size advantage against a smaller defender with little help available to them.

With only four yards to gain, they knew this would be the case. But Whitehead played the coverage physical and tight from the get-go, and due to how sticky he was to Cook throughout the route, he was able to disrupt the pass on the bigger player and make it so he couldn’t haul it in.

When Arians talks about his players being soft, he’s not talking about that. That rep was a physical, gritty rep from the smaller Whitehead, and one worth praising.

Defensive coordinator Todd Bowles continued to change up his coverages throughout the first half, and his aggressiveness with some of them really got the better of the Saints in the early portions of the game.

The Bucs played a lot of Cover 3 to open this game up, which calls for the deep portions of the field to be divided into three zones. There are different types of Cover 3, though, as you can have different players used to occupy each zone. For example, if you have two corners and one safety responsible for each deep zone, it’s called “sky” coverage. If you have one corner and two safeties it’s called “cloud.” The Bucs were giving the Saints a heavy dose of Cover 3 looks from both sky and cloud, and that brings us to the play above.

As the Bucs played a lot of Cover 3 to start, they wanted to throw the Saints off. They did so in the play above by calling a Cover 2 look. But it wasn’t just any Cover 2 look. This play was a Cover 2 invert.

In a classic Cover 2, two safeties are the players who are responsible for the deep zone. The two types of Cover 2 are either Cover 2 man, which means the safeties cover deep and the outside cornerbacks play man coverage; or a Tampa 2 style, which has the safeties playing deep and the corners playing short/flat zones near the line of scrimmage. However, in a Cover 2 invert, it’s the corners that play the deep halves of the field and the safeties who are then free to either blitz or play in a “robber” role over the middle of the field against No. 2 or No. 3 receivers.

In order to pull this off, you need to have strong play from your outside corners and also aggressive play from your safeties to keep an eye on the quarterback to jump routes. Rookies safety Mike Edwards was the one who broke on the route over the middle, and he almost sacked Teddy Bridgewater with it. Instead it was a tackle right at the line of scrimmage – still a good result.

I highlighted these two plays and explained them in detail to show that the Bucs haven’t been afraid to call defensive schemes that are aggressive or attacking in nature. They haven’t been vanilla. The “soft” play in the secondary comes from elsewhere.

I’ve said this before, but context is always key, so I’ll repeat it every time. It is very hard to play in the NFL as a rookie cornerback. It is additionally hard to play against wide receiver Michael Thomas, no matter how many years a corner has been in the league.

I say that as a precursor to the fact that rookie Sean Murphy-Bunting in no way looked like he was ready for regular season action last Sunday. The coaching staff was giving SMB a lot of praise during training camp, and where I liked his tape out of college and thought he could develop into a nice player, I didn’t really understand where the praise was coming from. I saw little flashes from him, but that’s all they were, and they were against guys who weren’t going to make the team.

Fast forward to last Sunday and SMB was the player in the slot at the top of the screen. In that rep, he was in man coverage as part of a Cover 1 shell. He didn’t have help on Thomas, and, as stated before, that’s a tough task for anyone. But he got beat off the line, bullied in the contact window and turned around on the route. He basically lost that rep in every way.

Animated GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

As expected after getting beat a few times, SMB became hesitant to stay close with Thomas.

On the play above at the bottom of the screen, Thomas initiated the contact, and even after Thomas threw Murphy Bunting’s arm down on the comeback route to confirm the separation, SMB was hesitant to close the distance, as to give himself a cushion if Thomas were to turn up field. But that clearly was not what was going to happen. The thing is that it wasn’t SMB’s instinct to stick with Thomas on his break. He stayed off Thomas and should have given up the catch because of it.

Animated GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

And then, of course, there’s the touchdown play, a play that can only be described as “soft.”

I give Murphy-Bunting all the credit in the world for owning this play like a man in the locker room, saying that there was no excuse, and they have to bring him down when they have two guys that close. He even put all the blame on himself.

But I can’t give him too much praise because it is on him.

SMB didn’t even get his hands on Thomas at all. Playing around the 10-yard line is the perfect opportunity to jam a receiver in press technique. SMB did what he was supposed to by flipping his hips to show outside leverage as to funnel the receiver towards the middle where he had help. But giving a guy like Thomas a free release with no physical contact at the line of scrimmage at the snap is just asking to get worked – and he did.

Animated GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

The last play I wanted to point out with Murphy-Bunting is one of the critical plays that Arians himself called out as one they have to defend against better. It was 3rd-and-10 in the clip above. The Bucs had the Saints backed up near their own end zone with score 24-17 in the closing minutes of the third quarter. This could have been the turning point had Tampa made the stop.

The play above is Cover 3 cloud with two safeties and Hargreaves dropping deep at the top of your screen, and Sean Murphy-Bunting playing a short zone/flat zone coverage role to the weak side. Though SMB is playing that zone to help defend against a back side pass to Kamara out of the backfield, he had linebacker help in the flat. He needed to keep sinking on the wide receivers route while staying near the sideline to close the window on the throw to Thomas. That way he could have kept Kamara in front of him on a short pass and also been a player on the out route that ended up being completed. I think he knew that, too. He just wasn’t nearly as confident as he needed to be to defend Thomas, at that point in the game.

Murphy-Bunting is young, and this was his first time getting a lot of action in a starting role when Carlton Davis went out. But he wasn’t ready, and his team needed him to be.

Animated GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

Now I want to focus on Vernon Hargreaves III.

Hargreaves has been having his best year, but as stated before on the first page, it still isn’t up to what this team need from him.

In the play above, Hargreaves was playing in man coverage in a Cover 0 shell. Before you get mad and yell “there he goes playing eight yards off his guy again,” realize that playing that at the snap is what is called for when he is in Cover 0 with no help. He has to make sure he’s covering deep first.

But as the play went on and Hargreaves was able to trail his man, the part I didn’t like was that he wasn’t on his toes to make contact at the catch point, and after that, he blew right by his guy and had to barely drag him down. Hargreaves should have broken on that ball as it was arriving, and should have contested the catch. But he didn’t, and he doesn’t as much as he should. He’s not a contact-first guy.

Animated GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

Thomas was so deep into Hargreaves’ head on Sunday. I mean, the play above just cannot happen from your CB1 – watch the top of the screen. Getting turned around like that is something that underclassmen defensive backs do in college. That stuff can’t happen at the NFL level.

I have to think it’s because Hargreaves was mentally bullied. Even after Thomas caught the pass, Hargreaves was shuffling instead of going after Thomas right away. In doing so, his hesitation let Thomas get to the pylon.

Animated GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

Hargreaves was at the top in man coverage in the play above. Thomas was a step off the line of scrimmage, so there was no chance to jam him up front. But Thomas was constantly the initiator all day when it came to hand fighting in the contact window, and because of this he created consistent separation and was able to convert plays like the one above. Hargreaves is always close to these receivers when they catch the ball and can usually make the tackle to bring them down. But a CB1 needs to disrupt passes and not let them be caught, not just contain them once they are.

Bowles is trying to do what he can to scheme this defense to be aggressive. The problem is the players from the cornerback room aren’t stepping up enough. I think it’s because they’re all being asked to play a step higher than they should be. I think VH3 is a CB2 playing as a CB1. I’m not sure Davis can create the turnovers you need as a CB2. And I think SMB is not quite ready to contribute as a CB3, and I think Stewart can’t keep up to be a starting CB3 in the slot, either.

If they all moved down one level, that might change everything.

The only was I see that as possible, I explain on the next page.

I appreciate the echo of Bill Clinton’s “It’s the Economy Stupid”, in your “It’s the corners [stupid]” We’ve been barking on about this all year – scratch that – for 5 years in the comments on PR. We don’t have anybody close to being a CB1…and you’re spot-on that when you don’t have the CB1, everybody else is going to look bad too. Go get Peterson – a 1st rounder as compensation would normally make me gag, but knowing that Licht is likely going be the clown otherwise using that pick, we might as well give it away for “the… Read more »

It makes sense to me but I’m not a GM or head coach or cap expert. If the Cards would take a second or even a first for him I’d do it for sure. Like you said are we going to draft a better CB in round 1? History says no. It’s amazing to me how bad Hargreaves stinks when you consider the draft position. I was worried he’s stay healthy but all signs pointed towards him rounding the corner of he could. Doesn’t look like that’s the case but it is still early.

My opinion is that the Bucs should stick to cover 3 and cover 1 for the young guys. Seattle does this because philosophically the Seahawks organization and Pete Carroll believe that young guys with talent need to play fast, physical and not be thinking too much. After slowly taking apart the Legion of Doom the Seahawks went on a shopping spree to draft loads of defensive back talent and see what sticks. Without Richard Sherman on the outside the Seahawks have had to let the young CB’s take their lumps but it has paid off for them. S. Griffin and… Read more »

Yes. Also, solid breakdown of the secondary and the defense. It’s not as obvious as us fans usually think but I think a lot of us knew the secondary was the problem and not Bowles (although Mike Smith was definitely a problem). I actually like Davis, SMB, and Dean and think they have a bright future. Your proposal is exactly what I’ve been thinking/wanting/yearning for.

Trevor, this is my favorite write up of the week. Putting together film to back your points of view is informative and entertaining. I don’t always agree with you but most times I at least learn something. Three things jumped out at me watching this film. 1) Consistently clean pocket 2) Multiple receivers creating consistent separation 3) Route trees that use both vertical and horizontal space on the field of play. (so many times this year it looks like the Bucs have receivers run to the same general area and make different breaks) At any case, Peterson would make a… Read more »

I’ll all for it. I think we can still salvage this season. And I disagree with Mark Cook’s PR Mailbag this week. He doesn’t think the Bucs are itching to trade for a Peterson or Howard from Miami, to make this go from a 6-10 team to 9-7. I think it’s totally worth the risk. Trade for the CB who will help get more wins this season. Even though he got an extension, Licht is on the hot seat. A lot of his picks, especially in the secondary are not working out.

Licht is much better with trades than drafting so hell yes, why not. Hargreaves may not be a bust, but he sure has flopped. Every moron in the media was calling for the Bucs to draft VH III, including this one. Why? Well mainly because he was a Gator. How inane and provincial. I know the Glazers just extended Licht’s contract, mainly because I think he was able to lure Arians out of retirement, but they have to get rid of him. His drafts have just been too spotty and weak. The Panthers drafted a CB after MJ and Davis,… Read more »

Trevor good article and you are correct the CBs but more importantly Licht has doomed this team. He’s been flagrantly wrong about the secondary and their actual talent for years going back to oking the release of Revis, to watching McDougald walk for Chris Conte and lastly these 5 failed first and second round picks.

I completely agree. It’s not the coaches or the schemes. It’s the players. The secondary just isn’t good enough, both at cornerback and at safety. They defend virtually no passes (getting a hand on the football). It amazes me every Sunday how we see opposing receivers, tight ends, and running backs getting wide open on passing plays, yet the Bucs, for all the supposed weapons that they have at the skill positions on offense, seldom have anyone getting wide open. The amount of yardage that the Bucs defense is surrendering, and subsequently the points, is ghastly. The best way to… Read more »

I agree Trevor that this young secondary has to play better, and that will come with experience. However there is another way to solve this issue, Its The Defensive Line. If we are generating consistent pressure to move the QB off of his spot then it doesn’t matter who’s doing the covering Patrick Peterson or Deion Sanders. The difference I’ve see from this game vs the Rams game was the amount of pressures we had on Goff. Bridgewater was never uncomfortable in this game, he stood straight up in the pocket and read his targets and picked on this young… Read more »

Peterson isn’t going to save us from Jason Licht. We’re talking about using our first pick on a corner? Does Licht still not get you need to draft in the trenches? How about drafting a DE, or DT that can rush the passer? How about drafting a RT? Licht has shown he can’t draft. We might even want to use that pick on a QB, and move on from Winston. He hasn’t earned 30 plus million a year from what I’ve seen so far. I can see us saving a boat load of money drafting a 1st round QB, and… Read more »

It’s pretty simple.

What is the Bucs league ranking for blitzing downs? 1st
What happens when you bring the house a lot? You leave corners on an island.
Do the Bucs currently have corners that are proven on an island? No, not yet. They are young or not good.
So what would be a good remedy? Stop blitzing so much and double #1 receivers.

There you go, Todd. Problem solved.

My concerns are he is 29 years old and is currently suspended for using a league banned substance. What did he take? There is the risk he might do so again. Some players have been stupid enough to do it again. Maybe a 2nd round pick with a 6th but not a 1st for a player who is only going to be around at the best 4 years. Then again I can see the point regarding some of the picks we have made in the 1st.

You forgot to mention that Peterson has NEVER been in trouble before, has no track record of being in trouble and is the top CB in the NFL when he is on the field. Peterson would instantly make the secondary a top 10 unit. Having a true #1 CB allows Davis to be a CB 2, VH3 to be a slot guy where he played very well when he was used there, and it allows us to use SMB at a reserve or CB4 until he develops and it kicks M.J. Stewart back to the bench or dime packages. If… Read more »

I would do a conditional first… as in if he played in the remaining 10 games and the Bucs made the playoffs then ok its a first; otherwise, a first round pick is steep for a player you would have at most 10 games in the first year. He can’t be in football shape so the possibility of injury is increased for this year. I wonder if we have the experience at the safety position for it to even matter. All of the players in the secondary are playing tentative and don’t seem to trust each other at all. They… Read more »

I still like Bowles system, but I really do think he needs a veteran presence to make it work with any semblance of consistency.

Great article and analysis, Trevor. I agree with the problem, I just don’t see Peterson as the solution. Since he hasn’t played this season it will take a few games to kick the rust off, meaning maybe we get half a season from him on a non-playoff team. So this is really a trade for next season. Peterson is 29 and turns 30 next July. Is he a one year, two year answer before we start talking about him slowing down? Then what.

It would have to be a first rounder and we will probably not be able to get the first cb off the board picking mid round so it seems like a crapshoot.

Shocker that a gator fan would say that. And i also find it interesting how people think some rookie isngoing to come in here and solve our problems at qb. For every mahomes theres 10 jamarcus russels. Remember when everyone thought dak prescott was better than jameis? Hows that going this year? Or what about jared goff? Point is this team has a lot of holes and one of them isnt qb. And 25 mill for a qb is the going rate now, thats only going to increase.

I’m a little late in my reading this week but I just can’t skip this.
I know about Peterson and how perfectly he would fit in Tampa now but that is any other CB you would take in a trade, Trevor?
