Jetsfan0099 Icon : (23 August 2014 - 07:23 AM) preseason or not, our offense hasn't looked competent in a while like it does this year. our rushing attack should be very good. Chris Johnson and Chris Ivory could be a dynamic duo

FlyHiJets Icon : (25 August 2014 - 01:04 PM) Champ Bailey to be released by Denver. Considering how busted up we are and Patterson now being suspended, do we take a look?
FlyHiJets Icon : (25 August 2014 - 01:05 PM) Cro rumored to be gettin released from Arizona. We should definitely bring him in since he already knows the system and he's bett erhtan our 3rd/4th stringers which is where we're at at this point.

Jets tried trading WR Stepehen Hill this summer. No takers. Let's see if final cuts today and Saturday change that equation.

HarlemHxC814 Icon : (26 August 2014 - 03:13 PM) I'm just glad there aren't anymore greedy bastards on the team to deal with
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (26 August 2014 - 03:13 PM) Or street thugs
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (26 August 2014 - 03:13 PM) f*** a CB problem
Jetsman05 Icon : (26 August 2014 - 03:49 PM) need 1 more in the fantasy league
RetireChrebet Icon : (26 August 2014 - 08:33 PM) Dimitri suspended for the rest of preseason. I'm sorry, I know we are bone dry at corner these days but they should have cut this prick on the spot . He's going to get torched regardless this year and I'd rather cut ties with any potential cancerous attitutudes before the season even starts.
RetireChrebet Icon : (26 August 2014 - 08:34 PM) Where I come from you take responsibility for your actions. Not showing up for a game is cowardly and selfish. f*** him
RetireChrebet Icon : (26 August 2014 - 08:36 PM) Also he doesn't know what the acronym AWOL means so he's also an idiot. No wonder he's never been anything but a journeyman corner is this league.
azjetfan Icon : (26 August 2014 - 09:11 PM) So how do you really feel?
RetireChrebet Icon : (26 August 2014 - 11:18 PM) I think my last three posts pretty much summarize how I feel haha. He's making 1.5 mill this year and no call no shows because his feeling are hurt. Would rather you play corner azjetfan than this guy
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 08:12 AM) Need 1 more for FFB!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:39 AM) Stephen Hill is going to get cut, guy sucks. Greg Salas is a better football player and deserves a spot over him
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:27 AM) So when do we show up to 115s house with pitchforks, tar and feathers?
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:03 PM) i'd rather see idzik go then hill. fire idzik
bleedsgreen Icon : (Yesterday, 12:21 PM) Hill is such a disappointment. I really was hopping for so much when he scored 2 TDs his first game
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 03:11 PM) We need to get the J-E-T-S chant back this year to the way it was
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 03:13 PM) idk if any of u guys went to any of the games last year[Im sure some of u did] but im not a fan of the drumline leading the chant
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 03:14 PM) its not the same as 70,000 people doing it during every kickoff and after every score
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:43 PM) injuries and poor QB play aren't good for a WR to develop
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:08 PM) 115 and Hill. Lol!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:18 PM) the excuses, Hill is just a terrible football player. no debate, just a fact. guy is soft as shit as well
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 10:43 AM) right cause all our other WRs were lighting it up
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 07:04 PM) Hill is useless bro lol

Posted 28 October 2010 - 10:10 AM

We have gone to the chalkboard here at the NFP breaking down plays and schemes in our Inside the Playbook series. A detailed look at what happens on the field.

Today, let’s go to the practice fields of the NFL. A breakdown of the key techniques required to play man-to-man coverage—at all levels of football. Darrelle Revis, Champ Bailey, Charles Woodson, Nnamdi Asomugha, etc. What makes these top tier DBs great on Sundays? Time for a coaching session on man-to-man defense.


ICON
The Jets' Darrelle Revis can play press or off-man coverage.
Routes: Outside of the 3-step game (slant, hitch, fade, smash, china, option), every route in the NFL breaks between 12-15 yards. That’s it. As a DB, you read through the 3-step and get your eyes back to the WR. Know that the comeback, the deep dig, post and 7 (or flag) route break at a depth of 12-15 yards. The WR starts to chop down his feet at eight yards? Simple, get ready for the double move—because there isn’t a route in an NFL playbook that breaks at that depth. No break between 12-15 yards? Turn and run—because that WR isn’t stopping until he gets to the goal line.

Off-man coverage: Toughest thing to play at the NFL level. Requires the DB to pace his backpedal, use his eyes and stay “in phase” with the WR. Leverage is key. If you are playing with outside leverage (with safety help in the middle of the field), you must be able to weave in your pedal and stay on that outside hip of the WR. Flat foot read through the 3-step game (allows CB to break on underneath) and get your eyes back to the WR. Stay on top with enough cushion to turn your hips and run, or to plant and drive downhill on the comeback, curl and dig. But, always know where your help is playing off-man coverage. In Cover 1, stay outside, and in Cover 0 (no safety help) stay inside and use the sideline as your extra help.

Press-man coverage: Hands. All about your hand placement at the line of scrimmage. Strike the WR in the chest plate. If he release inside, strike with your outside hand. If he released outside, strike with your inside hand. Keep your feet lateral and be strong with your hands. As coaches will tell you, don’t “open the gate.” Translation: no need to open you hips and try to punch with your hands. WRs will run right through that and you will be stuck chasing. It is all based on the release. If you can use those hands to disrupt the release of the WR, keep leverage and play to the hip of the route, you will be in a position to make a play. “Mirror” that release and be a physical football player at the line of scrimmage.

Alignments: Know where you are on the field. A “nasty” reduced split? Expect an inside breaking route. The WR aligned with a wide split outside of the numbers? Slant or the fade. Can’t run the 7 route from that alignment. Why? There isn’t enough field to work with. A WR aligned on the top of the numbers? Look for the out route. The formation of the offense will tell you a story even before the ball is snapped. Know your opponent and why he is aligned in that position.

Releases: What is the release telling me? A hard inside release with a vertical stem? Deep dig or the post. An outside release to the sideline? Comeback or fade. In the slot, tougher to prepare for. However, the release tells you where the WR wants to go. Part of the process in indentifying the route before it happens.


ICON
Denver's Champ Bailey is still a top tier corner because of his technique.
Pad level: Applies to every position on the field, but as a DB, it is crucial to success. Keep your pads low and over your feet. Can’t plant and drive when you get too tall in your pedal. Can’t open your hips. Can’t change direction. You must keep those pads low and over your feet. I have seen many DBs—including myself—get toasted playing with a high pad level. 2003 season. A corner-post by the Bucs’ Keyshawn Johnson. My technique was bad. I got too tall playing man coverage. The result? Keyshawn ran right past me for an easy six.

Don’t panic…play the pocket: If you play DB long enough, you will get beat. What we usually see from young DBs in the NFL is flat-out panic at the point of attack—and that usually draws a flag. Don’t grab, don’t hit the receiver and don’t pull the jersey. Get back “in-phase” to the hip of the WR and play the pocket (between the WRs hands at the mesh point). The WR has to bring his hands together to catch the ball. We all know that. If you are beat, stick your hands in the “pocket.” Because, when you play the ball, the ref can’t throw the flag. It sounds simple, because it is. DBs who panic can’t play.

Eyes: Have to play with technique. That is always a key, but if you don’t have the proper eye placement as a DB, none of that matters. Keep those eyes on the hips of the WRs. Can’t forget that, because a WR can’t make a cut without turning and opening his hips. It never fails. And, don’t look in the backfield. There is nothing going on back there that concerns you when you are playing man-coverage. Smart players always have their eyes in the right spot.
