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.
Was that cover 2?
The tight-end started on the outside, Jackson had him. Gaffney was in the slot, looked like Nolan had him..... It looked like man to me.
When the tightend motioned to the RT, Jackson came to get Gaffney, Nolan should have switched to the TE.
Doesn't look like Nolan switched. Gaffney ran right past both Jackson & Nolan......
There are probably a couple of things that should have happened or could've happened on that play. Regardless, there is no reason for KJac to allow Gaffney to run past him when he sees he has no help.
I don't know if that is evidence of lack of talent, or lack of speed. for all I know, he got caught up trying to tell Nolan to back up & go to a cover 2 shell....
