Since TT he appears to be bringing the CBs much closer to the LOS.
As a result we have been stuffing the screens. Tulsa only threw two and both were stuffed.
ECU (not counting last ten minutes) had almost every screen pass stuffed.
We did get beat on the medium crossing route for a few first downs on third and long. But I would MUCH rather make the QB find a receiver after the snap than before it.
It gave Ed & Co a chance to sack the QB. It also lead to so,e turnovers and short fields.
And today…wait for it…we caught the INTs. At Tulsa we could have had 5or 6. But got two.
What we did to ECU remind me of how Gibbs played us. They overloaded blockers with numbers and made the QB have to make quick decisions. Pressure sure makes our secondary seem better.
Hope it continues because holding any college team to 6 over three quarters is very good. Cautiously optimistic.
