And that was exactly the lack of field speed that Wade Phillips is concerned with. That's not coaching. That's not technique. That's just getting outrun by a possession receiver.
Did you watch the video with sound off?
Must be, 'casue you certainly missed what the announcer was saying:
"Troy Nolan beaten on the play."
Also, there's no specific rule in cover two that the CB has to bump the receiver.
Quin certainly didn't bump the receiver.
And by the way, Jackson lined up at least 7 yards away from the LOS, any kind of bump will be a penalty.
Another note for you: In cover 2, the safety can never be found closer to the LOS than the CB.
Yet another note for you, based on your definition, Dunta was a turtle; he was a mile away from the receiver.
