Our coaching staff dont use that phylosophy either. They want their safeties to be interchangeable.
I think, with Bush, that philosophy is changing.
We saw more of Dunta being put on the opponents best receiver instead of just playing a side like in pre-Bush days. We saw more of a SS/FS duty split with Pollard playing up in the box and Wilson/Barber/whoever playing more of a FS role. I even think with the drafting of Okam, we saw the possibility of that space-eating NT to clear the way for Amobi/Whoever playing DT.
So, while I would have agreed with you last year, I think they're changing a bit.
