Opponents Completion Percentage Against Colts Tampa 2 Coverage

The Tampa 2 has had to change since last year. QBs are just picking us apart, whether it be Drew Brees, Matt Cassel, Colt McCoy or Andy Dalton. 79% is terrible, and Jim Caldwell should notice that, but he's too busy sleeping on the sidelines during games to notice that. 79% is about 8% higher than the QB with the best percentage (Rodgers).We've faced Colt McCoy, Josh Freeman and Andy Dalton, but somehow it's at 79%. smh

If we were running Tampa 2 as a situational defense, and the majority of those completions were stopped short of first downs, that stat wouldn't be a problem. Sadly, that's not the case.

I agree. The biggest problem I had with the graphic was that it showed the Colts run tampa 2 coverage over 50% of the time.

Yes - we run the Tampa 2 and give the receivers a huge cushion on 3rd and 8, 3rd and 10. I don't understand why you wouldn't at least shrink your cushion on a 3rd down play to try and limit the reception short of the first down. Maybe I'm missing something but that seems like common sense. Maybe our corners are just that bad.

I kind of wish we had Tryon and Hayden now.

Speaking of I dont know if anyone was watching the Giants Dolphins game but Tryon played really well, he had a big special teams play when the Giants punted the ball and he stopped Reggie Bush and to make it even more astounding apparently he played the game with a broken arm for a quarter for two.
