I don’t know..Sapp said it is going to take time as well as Brooks and Barber.  This isn’t something you can learn within one off season in my opinion.The reason why the defense is regressing so much is because the Tampa 2 is designed to stop big passing plays.  If done right it works incredibly well, but if not done right you are leaving large holes of real estate that a pro QB can pick apart.It is a very binary defense in that you either are in the right zone coverage, right position or not.  There is no intermediate like m2m coverage.  Most NFL defenses today (eg Seattle) use a base defense of a cover 3.  Currently, this defense isn't featuring a lot of cover 3 because it requires a lot out of the safties and mike LB. 

Please wait…
