I'm convinced that the Cover 2 is the worst defense ever. It only works around the goal line where things get bunched up. Any other spot on the field it leaves the safeties in one-on-one coverage situations if the opposing team sends guys deep. If the opposing team sends 3 guys deep they have a man advantage while the linebackers/nickel are back picking their noses 5 yards from the line of scrimmage.
How 'bout that 3rd & 19 that Dallas converted last night? What was Bigby doing on that play? QB spy? Cover 1? He was all alone in no-man's land 15 yards away from any action. Whatever, he's still a big upgrade over Marquand Manuel from last year.
That game harkened so many memories of all those other losses the Packers have had down in Dallas - not playing well, crooked refs, hard turf, no pass rush, Jerry fuckin' Jones, getting bullied, losing, etc.
