Not trying to flame, just looking for legitimate answers.

I think it was because of the youth of our starting corners...

I think our CBs (young and old) were better in man than in zone.

also think the safeties were left to play way too much man when the nickel and dime guys blitzed. I'd like to see the safeties blitz a bit more and the slot guys cover.

because we were inexperienced at corner....and the times we did our safeties got burnt

That is as far as I'm reading in this thread.

Anytime someone starts a thread with "not trying to flame" there is a 100% chance for flamage.

You people must not have a family, job, etc.. to sit around and come up with this stuff.

6 and 32 got killed in man....28 held his own and 24 was pretty great.....we played too much man....loved the adjustment to a 3-4 vs aTm....zoned them up and shut them down..maybe something to consider with more running QB's in the SEC

we did play more man that zone. thats how alabama came back and beat us... we playin zone and the corners was playin 10-15 yards off. which tells me that chavis is protecting his corners from gettin beat cause we can't cover as good as we use to

No! We played zone because coaches always do that shite. There are five or six things coaches just have a blind spot to. I don't know why. One is playing a prevent zone when there's still time for a drive to beat you. It's foolish. Against good offenses it almost always yields a scoring opportunity. Our corners were manhandling Bama in that game as they did to opponents all year long. Chavis was keeping Bama off balance, mixing man and zone coverages and run blitzes. Then - I don't know why - he telegraphed a cover 2 zone with safeties lined up 18 yards deep. It's okay to mix that in. It's a legitimate weapon. But you can't telegraph any defense.

Well, we had a top 6 draft pick at CB last year.

Having said that, we play a LOT of man...more than most teams.

Because we had a very young secondary and Mo Claiborne wasn't there to shut down one receiver. You cannot expect young players to play up to the level of a Mo or PP7 right away.
