Yes, that was a horrible description of our defense, starting with the fact that it has been discussed for years that we do not play a strong safety and free safety but a left safety and right safety.
It is ludicrous to even beign to suggest that our defense requires a safety to stand in the middle of the field,and watch how both corners are aligned and covering their man before chossing which side to give help on.
That is simply impossible, because by the time he could make that decision, even assuming he COULD make that decision, the play would have developed so far that he would have no chance of getting to either side of the field.
Plus, it goes against every concept of defensive football in the world, to suggest that a corner may or may not have deep help, so he has to cover as if he does, but also as if he doesnt in case the safety decides he doesnt need it? How do you decide whether a corner who is expecting deep help needs it or not from the first 5-10 yards of coverage? By definition, the tighter his coverage the more he is expecting it.
Or a different way to read this is that the safety sits back and decides which corner is deciding to play his own defense instead of the one that is called, implying our corners just do what they want and our defensive calls are chaos.
This is one of the most obtuse posts I have ever read. The person writing either is goofing with people or can't even understand why what he made up is impossible to be accurate.
